If you ask certain people, they will say that their home is too small. They walk around thinking about all the things they can change, move and rearrange in order to make it appear larger. The trouble is, that’s easier said than done! It can become overwhelming at times when you think about everything you could do to make your house just a little bit bigger and more inviting, but the truth is that it’s not always easy or possible.
What Can You Add to Your Home to Make It Appear Larger Inside?
1. Mirror Barn Doors
When you have a small space, such as a bedroom, bathroom, or another living area, your goal is to make it look larger. You want to put something in that space that will expand the size. This is where new mirror barn doors come into play. Mirrors always make things look bigger, and these beautiful sliding barn doors are going to do just that. They slide back and forth for convenience and also give you the appearance of an expansion of the room.
2. Shelves for Displaying Coffee Mugs and Wine Glasses
This will only work for a limited number of items, such as plants, but you can use it to show off those you have the most pride in. Place them in a space that allows maximum exposure to sunlight and space for air circulation (like on the kitchen island). Also, consider rugs are probably one of the easiest ways to make a room appear larger, if not simply by adding more height to it. You can get nice rugs that are under $100 at Costco.
3. A Small Tile Inlaid Into the Floor Design
Adding inlaid tile can add depth to a room and make it appear bigger than it normally would be. Try a honeycomb pattern, which seems to work perfectly. The tile part was just 2 x 2 feet. I also got this on Amazon, to make sure it wouldn’t take up any space. Apply a slightly darker shade of paint to the walls in order to add more depth and make it seem like there’s more space. Put in a huge cheval mirror for added space.
4. A TV
Make it a smart TV, with HDMI and USB connectivity to play media files easily in the house. You can see what features are built in, check the reviews, and find out what model you should go for. As for the actual television set itself, you can get one of the big flat screens for under $500 (comes with a soundbar) from Amazon. It’s even available in different sizes (50″ or 55″).
One last thing. If you want more space, don’t try and convince yourself that getting a bigger house is the answer. It’s certainly not! With the interest rate increasing weekly, keeping your home and making the most of what you have is the best idea. Create the space you want by rearranging the rooms you already have with these simple tips.
It might take a couple of weeks to do it all, but you will have more space and the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself. A house should be a reflection of who you are. So, what are you waiting for? Get started on that home makeover and have a delightful day!
So many people go through life thinking that their house is too small. They dream about a bigger house but are wary of the expense. Why not make the best of what you have instead? A tapestry in a room adds a warm touch to any interior. A great way to add depth to a room or one area of a room is to cover the ceiling with faux fur. You can find shag curtains at most stores that sell home decor and they are not expensive at all.
As you see, there are literally hundreds of ways to make your home appear larger. You just have to get creative! Mirrors, shelves, and rugs can all help with the goals you have to make your home look bigger.
