If, like lots of people, you struggle to make the most out of the space in your home, then you may find these top tips as suggested by our Facebook fans helpful!
One of the main reasons why a room can appear small is due to clutter. It can be all too easy for items to accumulate in your home (you hoarders know who you are!) but often the best way to achieve a more spacious feel is to remove all the nick-nacks from surfaces and store them away in cupboards. This will create a minimalist, streamlined effect.
Lots of our Facebook fans suggested this tip! Mirrors are ideal when it comes to making a room look bigger, you can visually double the size of a room by using them. Another perk to using mirrors in your home is that they make the most out of natural light and give your home a fresher, more vibrant feel.
Selecting the right soft furnishings for your home can sometimes be a bit tricky, especially when you’re trying to maximise space. We agree with our Facebook fans when they recommend that you steer well clear of heavy curtains as they’ll drown a small room. A handy tip Facebook fan, Tracy, came up with is to buy a curtain pole a metre too long and attach floor length curtains to give the illusion of a bigger window.
Deciding how to decorate a small room can take a while – be sure to steer clear of feature walls as they’ll draw a room in and can often be a bit too ‘loud’ in small rooms. It’s a great idea to use neutral colours or pastel shades on the walls and to accessorise with brighter soft furnishings.
