ASK THE DESIGNER “How do You Make Those Teeny-Tiny Spaces Look and Feel Larger?”

This week our focus question is from:

“How do You Make Those Teeny-Tiny Spaces Look and Feel Larger?”

In order to help make those teeny-tiny, small spaces in your home look, or at least feel a little larger than they really are, I first off, would definitely recommend using a light paint color! Maybe even pick a light paint color that you like, and then actually even go one shade lighter. On top of that, you also want to incorporate as much natural light as possible into your space. Mirrors or a shiny-ish wallpaper can really help with reflecting a little more natural light into a room. Another great trick of the eye can be done using your window treatments! Rather than fitting them to your window, hang them from ceiling to floor. This will help to create the illusion of larger windows and higher ceilings, which will definitely help your space feel larger!

Sarah I am so glad you asked this vital question, so many people are face this exact dilemma everyday. It always great to have a expert help you get the most out of a tight space. Be sure to check out all the designers answers, including mine at Sarah’s link below.
