How to Make Your Home Feel Bigger.
Wouldn’t it be nice to sell up and buy a mansion? Well, you can dream or you can find ways to make your tiny abode look and feel bigger. We’ve gone with the latter. Take a look at our pick of simple solutions to make your home look and feel more spacious.
1. Use Light Colours on Your Walls.
Whilst it might be tempting to paint your lounge a dark, cosy colour, it won’t do your small house any favours. Why? Well, dark colours tend make a room look smaller therefore, your already-small house will appear even smaller. Not good.
Be sure to paint your walls with light, airy colours that will reflect the light and make a space feel bigger and brighter; just what you want.

2. Buy Glass Furnishings
Glass furnishings, such as coffee tables and dining tables, are not only an elegant way to kit out your home. These distinctive, clear furnishings take up very little visual space as well. What does this mean? Well, you can add a touch of style to your small home without it looking too cluttered.

3. Mount a Mirror on the Wall
One of the simplest ways to make a house appear bigger is to create the illusion of more space. And a mirror does just that by reflecting light.
However, rather than opt for a freestanding mirror that will take up space in a room, go for one that you can mount on the wall. A large mirror on the wall will give the impression that the room is much bigger than it actually is. Plus, a mirror is functional and can create a statement in your home.
4. Don’t Put Up Curtains
This only works if you’re not overlooked. If your living room is at the front of the house, then you’ll no doubt want to put up curtains or at least blinds.

However, if your living room looks out onto your back garden, why not leave your windows bare? This will allow more light in, which will give your home more depth. Curtains may make your already small room seem crowded, whereas a bare window will open up a space. And the more windows, the better!
