5 Ways to Create the Illusion of a Larger Space
When people view homes a key factor when buying a property is the space that comes with it! Unfortunately, not every property is blessed with a wealth of space. In a small space everything counts from accessories, to colour choices, to natural light. This blog will give you 5 key pointers to help optimise your space!
The key to creating the illusion of a larger space is light! Mirrors are a basic home accessory however have more purpose than being a statement piece. Placing a mirror in the correct location allows you to optimise natural light. The best place for this would usually be adjacent to a window or a glass filled external door, the light subsequently bounces throughout the room adding depth.
The choice of colour when painting a small room plays a major role when it comes to creating the illusion of a larger space. When we paint rooms in lighter colours they become more reflective, making your space feel open and airy. Dark colours on the other hand tend to absorb the light making a room look and feel smaller.
Simple… keep your room tidy and organised! There is nothing worse than being in a small space feeling cramped due to clutter accumulated over the years. To sum it up, a cluttered room equals a smaller room. When decorating a space limit the number of accessories and have a focal point, whether it be a bed in a bedroom, a dining table, TV and so forth. Another thing you may want to consider is instead of having multiple pictures in a room perhaps have one larger picture.

The key to inviting the natural light into your space is through large windows or glazed doors elegantly connecting your space with the outdoors, making it feel larger, brighter and simply stunning no longer limiting your space!
