Incredible Ideas To Make Your Apartment Look Bigger!

Incredible Ideas To Make Your Apartment Look Bigger!

More and more people are choosing to live in apartments. This is because they’re usually in great city locations and fairly cheap to stay in. But, they come with one problem - they can be a bit small. So, to counter this, I’ve got three tips to help you make your apartment look bigger!

 

Colours

You’ll be surprised at how much colours can make a difference to the look and feel of a room. If you’re someone that likes dark colours, then I’ve got some bad news for you. Unfortunately, though they may look nice, dark colours can make a room feel a lot more cramped and restricted.

So, the alternative is to do the complete opposite of this. Dark makes rooms look smaller, but light makes them look bigger. If your apartment isn’t already painted in light colours, now’s the time to get that paint roller out! Make sure the walls and floor are coloured with light shades and your apartment will start to feel a whole lot bigger. If you don’t believe me, then try it out in one room first. Change the colour in your bedroom and I can guarantee you’ll notice the difference it makes.

Furniture

Furniture plays a big role in the spaciousness of any apartment. As you probably already know, lots of apartments come pre-furnished. So, if there’s already furniture in the place, it’s down to you to make the most out of it. Move the sofa and tables around so that it creates a bit more floor space and makes the room bigger. Or, you could get rid of/replace some of the furniture if you don’t need it. The benefit of this is that you can get furniture that suits your own style and is the size you want.

Also, you have to be savvy and make the most out of the furniture in an apartment. Instead of having a dining room table and a desk, why not combine the two? You aren’t going to be eating on the table all day, so it may as well be your desk too. This way, you’re cutting down on the furniture you need and your table has a use throughout the day. The same can be done with a coffee table too. There’s no need to buy a pouffe if you have a coffee table, just put a cushion on top of it and viola!

Mirrors

The reflectiveness of a mirror can come in super handy if you want to make rooms look bigger. That’s one of the reasons why elevators will have big mirrors on the back wall; it makes space seem larger and less cramped! If you apply this to rooms in your apartment, your place will look far more spacious.

Obviously, you can’t just plaster the walls with mirrors, that will be an interior design nightmare! But subtle placements of mirrors here and there can make a great deal of difference. Full-length mirrors in the bedrooms and bathroom are a must as these rooms are generally the smallest. But for your living area, perhaps stick to smaller mirrors that don’t clutter up space in the room.
