If your home is not very large there are several ways to make the rooms look more spacious. The advantages of doing so are mainly enhanced lifestyle as you won’t feel cramped up, or that the walls are closing in on you. And you won’t feel at a disadvantage when friends or relatives with larger homes come to visit. Of course we all know that the latter should not matter, but we are all human and so it does – at least for many people.
Keep out the clutter
One way to make rooms look larger is to keep furniture to a minimum. Don’t clutter up the room with small items of furniture in every corner. Too many occasional tables filled with photographs, figurines or flowers will eat up your space. Even too many pictures on the walls will make them tend to close in on you.
Toy or craft clutter will also make a room look smaller as well as crowded and messy. If you have kids with lots of toys or are a crafter, keep tubs handy to put all the stuff into when it is not being used. Even papers and magazines can spread out over the sofa and floor if you are not careful and they too, cause a room to look smaller.
