Make A Small Space Feel Bigger

With the economy being the way it is and the constant rise in inflation, it can be increasingly harder and harder to buy a home at a young age. If you are lucky enough to snag a home in your price range, chances are the house will be pretty small. But don’t feel like that’s a bad thing, because in fact you can make some really great changes to a small home to make it feel much bigger.
Stick To Light Colours
If you have a small living room, the last thing you want to do is paint the walls and imposing red or dark purple. You’ll end up sucking all of the light and life out of the room immediately and there will be no room for you to change things around. If you are really set on having a bold colour in the room, wait until you’ve painted the space and buy a statement piece of furniture.
Multifunctional Furniture
Contemporary Interior Design has a very good plus side, it features many pieces that can be used as two different things. Think about your bed for example: there is always space under there which never gets used apart from to play hide and seek with the family. Why not buy yourself a bed with drawers built in? You’ll have an extra chunk of storage space as well as decluttering your room. The same applies to downstairs. The stairs are like a black hole of space, the space they take up can cost you dearly in your home. But installing drawers under each step will give you a place to hide all of your Knick knacks and save room for other items in your home.
Mirrors are your best friend. If you have a space on the wall, add a mirror. You’ll instantly be adding a ton of light to the room as well as reflecting your room to give the illusion of more space.
Less is more
Bulky furniture can overpower a compact room, but so can multiple pieces of smaller furniture items. Simplicity is key here: choose one appropriately sized couch that fits the room and has enough seating for everyone rather than trying to coordinate an assortment of chairs and sofas. Or for bedrooms, try a headboard that has built in side tables.
Natural Light
Just the mirror, natural light can be a true hero in your small home space. By getting rid of chunky curtains and blinds from the room, you will open up the space to allow so much more light in than you thought possible, which in turn will your home feel larger.
The Thigh Gap
Not literally, but have you ever noticed that modern designs have sofas with legs? The reason for this is that the space the legs create under the sofa allows more light in the room, ad allows you to see into other parts of the space. Having a thigh gap can, therefore, be a bit of an advantage.
