If you haven’t a lot of space to work with in your home, it can be incredibly frustrating as your property will feel cramped. However, there are all kinds of ways to make a room look larger than it actually is.

This doesn’t take too much time or effort either, you’ll simply need to invest in some clever tricks to get your home looking and feeling as spacious as you wish it really was.

1) Be Clever with Colour

Your choice of colour in a room can make all the difference. Dark colours can make a room look much smaller, whereas lighter, brighter colours will work wonders. White, cream, light blue and other lighter colours will make your room appear larger.

2) Make the Most of Mirrors

A well-placed mirror really can give the illusion of depth to a room. You simply need to angle your mirror towards a focal point. However, you don’t always have to use traditional mirrors. Mirror radiators, lamp shades or tables can be used to achieve this effect as well. If you’re thinking about utilising a mirrored radiator , you’ll also get the benefit of a quirky and modern style.

3) De-clutter

Clutter can instantly make a room look cramped, even if it’s actually quite large. In a room that’s already fairly small though, it can be a nightmare. Make sure you utilise space saving furniture, such as wall-mounted shelves, bookcases, beds with under bed storage, desks with built in drawers and more.

4) Keep the Décor to a Minimum

If you adore artwork, you’ll need to make sure you pick a few choice pieces rather than having lots on the walls, as having clear wall space will make your room look much larger.
