5 Ways to Make a Room Seem Larger Than It Is

Do you have a room in your home that you wish was just a little bit bigger? There are several tricks to help make a room seem larger than it is. Here are some easy and doable ways to make this happen.

Natural Light

Using natural light in any room makes it seem more warm and welcoming. If you have a small room and are able to use natural light, this is a simple yet effortless way to make the room seem bigger than it is. 

Floor to Ceiling Curtains

Now, if you are using natural light to help make a room seem bigger, grab some curtains that are long enough to cover the floor to the ceiling. These curtains can make the walls seem higher than they really are, giving the illusion of a larger room because of it. 

Soft Paint Colors

Selecting paint colors that are more neutral or lighter in shade tends to make any room look bigger opposed to darker colors. Using lighter colors creates depth and gives the illusion of a larger space. 

Multi-Functional Furniture

Using areas that can double as a storage area is a huge plus to keep clutter to a minimum! Maybe it’s a window seat where there is storage space below. It could also be a TV stand that has storage space beneath it to keep knick-knacks or other household items out of the way. 

Area Rugs

Having one large area rug in a small room can also give the illusion of more square footage in the space. No matter what the room is used for, there are plenty of rug options for you as far as size goes.
