January 4, 2018

Struggling with a small room in your home? A small space doesn’t need to be cramped. Here are a few tips on how to make your small room look more spacious using windows.

Make the most of your Natural Light using Windows. 

Windows are everything when it comes to making the most of a small space. Large, uncovered windows will make even a small room feel open and spacious. You can even ditch the curtains to help declutter the space.

If you decide to keep the curtains, make sure they follow the room’s neutral, soft color scheme. They should hang full the length of the window.

Don’t have enough natural light in your small space? Use mirrors. Mirrors are a great way to make a space seem larger than it is. The larger the mirror the better. Maybe try something bold and dedicate an entire wall space to a mirror.

Make Sure There is Space Around the Furniture.

Your first instinct when furnishing a small room might be to fit your pieces into the room like a puzzle. You do this to maximize walking space and functionality. This isn’t necessarily the best way to make the room look spacious.

Pull your furniture away from the wall to create a sense of spaciousness. Raise furniture with exposed legs are perfect for smaller rooms.

Clear out any Unnecessary Clutter. 

Just like the space around your furniture, half empty shelves will help create a spacious feel to your small room. Style your end tables, coffee tables, and shelves to only host a stylish number of decor. Nothing smaller than a cantaloupe.

In a small room, remember that you don’t want items like remotes laying around. Find creative storage solutions in your sofa, coffee table, or entertainment center.

Try to Avoid Lighting the room with one Overhead Light. 

Create more space by dividing the light source among floor lamps and reading lights. The lower lighting will cause the room to seem taller.

The same rules apply if you have any bold decor pieces. Try finding a place for it that is also lower to the ground.
