How to Make Your Room Seem Larger

You don’t need a fortune to make your home look more spacious; just knowing how to create the illusion of additional space and how to make your home more organized is usually enough. Handyman Connection® of Jeffersonville shares simple but effective ways to visually increase your home’s space.

Add a Large Mirror

This simple trick is often used by restaurants. A mirror can make a room look bigger and brighter because it reflects plenty of light. Mirrors are also excellent decorative features. An ornately designed mirror makes a room look elegant and traditional while a plain steel-framed one makes a room look sleek and modern. For best results, use a single, large mirror instead of several small reflective surfaces to make the room seem larger.

Eliminate Clutter

Clutter can make your home look and feel a lot smaller than it really is because of all the space it takes up. Free up some living space by selling the items you no longer use. If you haven’t used it in two years, then it should go. If you still have some items left over, consider installing shelves in underused spaces, such as the corners of a room or along the walls. A well-organized room looks and feels spacious.

Create Seamless Connections Between Spaces

You can create the illusion that your home is one big continuous space by making the connections between rooms as seamless as possible. You can leave doors open or use the same type of flooring material across different rooms. If the rooms have different flooring materials, try and stay within the same color family instead. Bathrooms, in particular, can feel larger if you use clear glass dividers instead of opaque ones.
