Living small is all the rage but you can still live large in a small space!

If you live in a small space, it’s important that you don’t feel boxed in. The following tips will help transform your cramped quarters into something that feels much more expansive:

Disappearing Doors
Installing pocket doors is an easy and inexpensive way to create loads of extra space.

Shady Solutions
Paint the walls a soft shade and the ceiling bright white to give the illusion of added height.

Lighten Up
Keep the window areas clear of heavy drapes in order to expand the wall area and to let the sun shine in to brighten things up.

Mirror Mirror
Strategically placed mirrors will create the illusion of added space and they’ll also reflect light into adjoining rooms.

Cut a Rug
Having the same type of flooring throughout your home will make it feel much more spacious so avoid using too many area rugs.

Hide & Seek
Maximize hidden space by hanging storage pockets behind doors or adding bed risers to accommodate under-the-bed storage containers.

Cut the Clutter
Have a place for everything so that the surfaces in your home don’t get cluttered. Storage baskets, for example, are great for hiding remotes and magazines.

Open Up
Arrange your furniture so you can see as much of the floor as possible. Rooms with blocked views can feel cramped so move furniture away from entrances.

Whether you’re getting ready to put your home on the market or you just want to create more space for yourself, these easy and inexpensive tips will help give you a little extra breathing room.

By thinking big and getting creative, you can comfortably live large in even the smallest of spaces.
