Very few of us are lucky enough to live in the home of our dreams. This means most of us have to make the best of what we have. This isn’t the end of the world. No matter your space or place, there are a lot of simple yet effective techniques that you can make to make your place feel that much bigger.
One way to take control of your spot is to alter the color, textures and patterns. Changing this part of the design is a fundamental way to affect how you and others feel while living in it. For example, going with a monochromatic color palette will help a room feel more open and airy. Something that can’t be said for a room with lots of contrast.
Accenting your place with things like curtains with lighter fabrics and furniture with long, thing legs can too contribute to the impression that the space is a lot larger than it truly is. Floors and walls can be accentuated with striped elements that trick the eye horizontally or vertically, creating the feeling of additional height or width.
Mastering these simple elements of design and using the psychology to your advantage will make your space feel bigger, ultimately making you more comfortable. The guide, found below, has even more ideas for making your small space feel bigger. Apply these to your home to make it feel closer to the home of your dreams.
