3 Ways to Trick Your Way Into A Larger Looking Space

We can do a lot of things to our house to make it seem *more* of something. More light, more calm, more natural- but more big? Not so much. Never fear though, we’re here to rescue you with 3 ways to make your small flat or room seem infinitely bigger, and no, put the sledgehammer down, this is all low budget stuff!

  1. Paint walls white or light
    It may seem simple but white really is the answer to everything. Painting your back walls white can set off all the deeper colours at the front and make a room look like it has more depth. Light reflects more on brighter surfaces, and the more light reflects the more our brain is tricked into thinking a space is larger than it is. Weird, but professionals use this trick constantly in all their designs! 
  2. Declutter
    We’ve all heard it before. But we’ll say it again because it’s true, the less that’s in a room the more space you have to breath, and the better you’ll feel about it. No, don’t just shove everything under the sofa. Take the time to have a proper clear out, this way it’s easier to tweak the layout of the room later on.
  3. Hang mirrors
    It may seem odd but hanging a couple mirrors in strategic places can work wonders for tricking the brain into thinking a space is larger than it is. This trick works excellently in bathrooms, but it also works well along hallways, cupboards or walls! This is one of the dirtiest tricks in the book, but if your house is often prone to grubby fingers or messy palmprints, try putting mirrored panels in out of reach spots such as the ceiling for the same effects.
