How to Make a Small House Feel Bigger

Love your “cozy” home but want to make it feel less, well, cozy? This post is for you!


Here are 5 ways to make your small house feel larger:


1. Less is more when it comes to furniture. Choose several larger pieces over a bunch of smaller ones to make your space feel bigger and less cluttered.


2. Speaking of clutter, declutter, declutter, declutter! Nothing kills a space like too many knick-knacks. Clear table tops and reduce items on shelves and bookcases. Open space = open feeling. Every. Single. Time.


3. Choose light paint colors. Use whites, grays, creams, and yellows on your walls, doors, and trim because of their ability to reflect light and brighten a room.


4. Just like light paint colors, mirrors are magic at reflecting light. When planning your wall decor, make sure to use mirrors to expand a room’s feel.


5. When possible, ditch the window coverings. Open windows or ones with sheer coverings welcome natural light and expand your space to the outdoors.
