Have you always wondered about ways to increase the space in your home?
Would you love to live in a house that has an open feel to it?
If so, rest assured there are a number of things you can do to increase the space within your home. From manipulating your furniture layout to tweaking the light, we’ve got you.
Here are four effective ways you can achieve this feat:
Manipulate Your Furniture To Increase The Space In Your Home
The way in which you layout your furniture will have a profound impact on the spacious feel within your home.
If you invest in too many pieces of furniture and, in turn, position them too close together, you’ll take up a lot of floor space.
This will impact your ability to move around your home freely.
This will ultimately result in you subconsciously believing that your property is a lot smaller than it is.
Want to live in a home that is both furnished and spacious? Then you must make an effort with your furniture.
To strike the perfect balance in this instance, you must:
- Invest in furniture that can be folded away when not in use.
- Make use of your ceiling space by building a DIY furniture loft.
- Purchase furnishings that double in function.
Mirrors are very much your friend in this endeavour.
No matter where they are hung, mirrors will instantly serve the purpose of adding different dimensions to spaces.
These dimensions might not be physical, but they will perform the all-important task of making your home feel much larger than it is.
A top tip in this instance is to position your mirrors on walls that are situated close to windows.
That way, your mirrors will have the capacity to reflect the wonders of the outdoor world into your home, which is great if you’re planning to sell your home in the future.
Invest In Glass Partitions To Increase The Space In Your Home
You don’t have to start knocking your walls through in order to create more physical space in your home, although that is a viable option if you have the time and money to invest in a sure and long-term solution.
As for other, more short-term options, simply invest in glass partitions and sliding screens!
You can elegantly increase the dimensions within your property without any fuss or hassle.
No matter your property size, they will have the capacity to make it feel more spacious.
Tweak The Brightness
Playing with light is another effective course of action that you can take in your bid to make your home feel more spacious.
There are so many combinations, colours and bulb shapes to choose from.
The level and intensity of the light that you set within your house will do one of two things: it will either hide the space in your humble abode, or it will accentuate it.
If you’re determined to take the latter route, be sure to fill your property with as much light (preferably of the natural variety) as you possibly can.
