Making Small Spaces Look Bigger
Not everyone has the luxury of space, especially nowadays that people are opting to stay in condos that, while they provide convenience to the homeowner, having a small space is usually inevitable.
But this doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most out of it.
If you find yourself caved in a tiny space, here are some ways to maximise your small area.
Use light colours on the walls and floor.
Short in space but abundant in lighting? Painting your walls with light shades will make your space look bigger. White/ light coloured walls blend into the shadows that’s why it gives the illusion of a much larger room.
Maximize hidden storage and multi-purpose items
Multi-functional is the way to go! If you can find a couch that doubles as a storage for your bed linens and other things, then that’s a way to save space. If you can store away your belongings into nice furniture, then it minimises clutter and gives the illusion of more space.
Opt for larger pieces of furniture
Having a small space doesn’t mean that you also need to have small furniture. Opt for 1 big sofa as compared to having 4 smaller chairs. With this tip, quality overrules quantity, and less is definitely more.
Mirror, mirror, and more mirror.
It’s no secret that mirrors are one of the best ways to maximise a small space. Mirrors are best placed on cabinet doors or floor-to-ceiling walls. Floor length mirrors make a room appear taller and horizontal length mirrors make a room appear wider.
Use large-format tiles
Large-format tiles give the illusion of a wider room. The Calacatta Tiles 60×120 tile is the perfect tiles that gives the illusion of an elongated room. Take it up a notch by laying them out horizontally slanted to maximise the space even more.
There are a lot of ways to create the illusion of space to any small room. You just have to be creative enough so you can enjoy even if you have a small space.
