Making Your Small Space Feel Like A Big Place – Infographic
Few of us are able to say that they live in the home of dreams, meaning most of us have to make the very best of what we’ve got. In most cases, it’s an issue of space. Bigger is always better, right? But what if you could make your current situation ‘feel’ bigger. Well, we have some easy-to-manage tricks and tips that can do just that.
No matter what type of small space you may have, there are a lot of simple yet effective techniques you can use to make that space feel much bigger. You won’t gain any square footage, but you’ll be able to spend time there without feeling cramped and claustrophobic. Mastering your place’s color scheme, texture patterns, and design elements will affect how you and others feel within your home.
For example, going with a monochromatic color palette for your smaller space can help the room feel more open and airy than having lots of contrast. Choosing accents in your space such as curtains made of light fabrics and furniture with long, thin legs also can contribute to the impression that space is a lot larger than it really is. Walls and floors can be accentuated with striped elements that help guide the eye horizontally or vertically to create the feeling of additional height or width, as well.
The accompanying guide contains many ideas for making a small space feel bigger. Apply them to your home and it will feel much closer to the dream space you’ve always wanted.
