Okay, let’s be real: not everyone has the luxury of living in a huge, sprawling space. But that doesn’t mean smaller rooms should feel like shoeboxes. In fact, there are a few ways to create the illusion of a larger and more airy space, no matter how many square feet you have. Want to know the best part? These tricks are super easy and totally doable.

Light and Color

Light colors are known for making spaces feel open and airy. Painting your walls in shades like off-white, light blue, or soft gray can instantly create the illusion of more space. Additionally, make sure you’re allowing as much natural light as possible to enter the room. Think about using light, sheer curtains, or blinds that let light through. 

Declutter and Organize

Finally, remember that a cluttered room feels cramped and small. Keeping decor minimal and functional is key to making a room feel bigger. Choose a few statement pieces instead of many small decorations.

Use Mirrors Strategically

Mirrors are a decorator’s secret weapon. When placed thoughtfully, they can make a room look significantly bigger. A large mirror, for instance, can reflect light and the view, effectively doubling the room’s visual depth. Mirrors placed across from windows can be especially effective.
