Are you on the hunt for hacks to make your space look bigger? Maybe you like the more minimalist look, maybe light and airy is your preferred design style..or maybe you just feel calmer when you appear to have more space? All 3 of these are true for me. I love a home to appear spacious and as big as it possibly can do.. We just have so much stuff though! Aaggh!
You do not have to live in a huge home in order to have one that looks spacious and uncluttered. You also do not need to spend every minute finding out what sparks joy in you as you endless declutter to give your home a more roomy feel.
Simple hacks can really make your space look bigger and none of them are uber expensive or involve moving house!
Small rugs can break up a large room into several different and distinct areas to make it look bigger but do go easy on the use of pattern and colour or it could look fussy as well as cluttered. I am aware this hacks gives an illusion of space ut really that is what we are after here. It is far simpler than building an extension!
Use light colours
Using light colours on walls and floors will really open up a room. Dark colours may be on trend and look super stylish but they achieve a cosy look rather than a spacious one. And small houses look cosy enough already!
