Anybody wants to make the most out of whatever available space they have. This is especially so if the person lives in a small space, such as a loft or a dorm room. Here are some tips for making the most out of a small space.
Let There be Light
Many smaller spaces tend to be darker because of a lack of light. However light helps to give an area the feeling of being bigger. With the windows that are available, either keep the blinds or curtains open doing the day, or install some blinds made of a thing material that will allow the light through.
The same theory applies to the color of your walls. Dark colours will close in a space, where light colours will open it up. If white walls are too plain for you, stick with a very pale color, and aim for doing a feature wall.
Smoke and Mirrors
When you don’t have it pretend that you do. To make a small window seem bigger, affix a curtain rod that extends beyond the size of the window. The curtain you then use will give off the illusion that the window is bigger than it is and will also add to the feeling of more space.
Mirrors are another useful way of creating the feeling of more space. Buy a large mirror – something old and funky – and lean it against your wall. The reflection of the room in the mirror will trick the mind into thinking it’s double the size.
These are just two easy ways to make a small space look bigger.
