Tips to enhance the size of your space - Instantly!

August 18, 2014 - Updated: August 18, 2014

We all have that one room in our home (or a couple!) we wish were slightly larger. If you are looking to sell your home, or just looking update your current space, these design tricks will help to enhance the feel of your room instantly.

Firstly, use light colours on the walls and floors. The more light in a room, the more airy the space will feel as dark walls can overwhelm a small space, making it feel smaller. Still love your dark decor? I suggest using darker shades to accent the space such as a lamp shade or an accent chair rather than dark walls and flooring.

Placing mirrors strategically around the room can achieve two things for your small space 1. they reflect light, brightening a room and 2. mirrors trick our eye into believing there is more space than in reality by adding instant depth to a space.

To maximize the height of your space, hang curtains from ceiling to floor. This trick draws the eye upward making the room appear taller than it actually is.  In addition, utilizing patterns such as stripes can be your best friend when it comes to enhancing your small space. Using a vertical or diagonal striped rug along the longest part of your room can instantly enhance the length of the room. 

Lastly, de-clutter! There is nothing that can enhance the size of your space further than an organized room. Get rid of small knick-knacks that can make your room feel cluttered and opt for a few pieces of larger decor items instead.
