Wanting a bigger living space is something a lot of us struggle with. However, with the constant rise in housing prices and lack of availability, it’s not always easy to be able to make that move, which is why we’re helping you fall in love with your home again by showing you the best ways to give the illusion of a bigger home. 

Optimise your space

To start you want to make sure you’re optimising your space, which you can do mainly by building ‘up’ instead of ‘out’. Higher shelves are a great use of space and will help you to declutter a room if everything is put away in an area that’s hard to see. 

You can also do this by purchasing furniture made for smaller spaces, pull-out beds or folding away dining room tables are a brilliant example of this, as well as placing this furniture in the right places to optimise the space. 

Install higher windows and doors

Another thing to consider is having higher windows and doors installed. A large window or door will give the illusion of a bigger room, especially when it can be opened out into another area. 

Bifold doors are the perfect example of this as they don’t need any space to pull out into but they can fully fold back and open up to create the illusion that your space is nice and open, making it appear much bigger.

Use your walls 

If your walls are quite a dark colour then chances are this is making your room look a lot smaller. Try painting your walls a lighter colour and adding a pop of colour by having a feature wall, whether this is just one colour or patterned wallpaper. 

You can also hang mirrors up on your walls, they will reflect the room and give the illusion of a bigger space.

We hope we’ve inspired you with our ideas on how to give the illusion of a bigger home, if you do decide to make these changes, make sure you choose a reliable window and door installers E&A windows. Contact us today!

From the first moment when Arthur came round to advise, measure-up and quote for the job we felt we were in good hands. And his team of installers provided the best service. I always think that the best test is if something needs further attention and in this case they returned promptly to fix a small issue and nothing was too much trouble. Our new doors have transformed the back of our house and we highly recommend this company for work of the highest quality. Thank you Arthur and team!

We got our back and front doors replaced by E&A Windows and we couldn't be happier with the job they did. Erez was so helpful as took the time to come to our home to give us a quote, explaining all our options thoroughly and clearly without being pressuring in the slightest. The quality of both doors was fantastic and Adrian’s installation was fast and completed to a very high standard. He was also very helpful. We would highly recommend E&A Windows and will definitely use them again for any future double glazing needs. Thanks so much!

Very professional service! During my initial consultation, I was fortunate enough to deal with the owner of the company. He visited my property and spent a few hours talking me through design options and his recommendations. His recommendations were very insightful and ensured my build looked elegant and modern while retaining the functionality required for an active family of 4. The build process was equally professional with the construction team arriving when they said, treating my property with respect and cleaning up after they finished each day...something not often done by today's tradesmen. I've recommend this company to my parents.

I have just had new windows installed by E&A Windows and I must say I was very impressed. Arthur the owner of the company was so helpful and supportive throughout the process. I don't know much about windows so was skeptical at first, but I felt at ease very quickly. The guys who came to fit the windows (John, Christie and Peter) were absolute legends. They were extremely friendly and so so helpful, and the respect they gave me, my elderly parents and our home was exceptional. They took care of our home as if it was their own. I have never come across such professionals, not only did they do a fantastic job , but they went well beyond, seemed like nothing was impossible. They were with us only for 3 days but my parents were actually sad to see them go. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to fit new windows.
