Small Rooms - 6 Tips On How To Make Them Appear Bigger

If you are pushed for space need to make the most of the space you have and avoid it looking cluttered and messy.
Here are some simple tips to make any small room appear bigger intimate and more comfortable.

Small Room and Mirror

1. Light

There is nothing worse than a dark room so make it as light as possible. Go for Roman blinds that can rolled up all the way up, to let the maximum amount of light in..

Curtains should be sheer light colours and avoid heavy drapes.

2. Less Is More

Go for large scale furniture, pictures paintings etc. Just go for less of it. A small jam packed room will look even smaller so less is definitely more in this instance.

3. One Item Only

Avoid multiples of anything. For example a pair of paintings or wall or standing lamps.

These will give the appearance of breaking space down.

4. Use all available space

Donít put things in the middle of walls if they can fit in the corner and still look good i.e items like lamps and bookcases.

5. Mirror Mirror
