Big or small – your home is your castle. It is an extension of your personality. Yet small homes can be quite confining and there is not much you can do about it given today’s property prices. What you can do is give the illusion that your home is bigger than it looks. Follow these five simple hacks to make less feel like more.   

 

1) Use passages intelligently

When you stay in a small home – every bit of space counts. That holds doubly true for passage ways. If your apartment has a passage that leads to your bedroom or living room, use multi-functional furniture or wall-hanging cupboards to display curios and showpieces. You can even use it to hang some of your stuff like keys and umbrellas among other things. Just don’t overdo it, otherwise it may look cluttered.

2) Play with colours

Colours don’t just affect the mood of your room but also the size. Light colours reflect light and make your room look much bigger. If you are living in a small house, make sure you use shades of blue, grey and other light colours as much as possible. Avoid dark shades which can make your home look small and restrictive.

3) Use a lot of mirrors

Mirrors, when strategically placed in home, will create an illusion of depth and make your room look bigger. Be creative when placing mirrors. Use full-length mirrors against your furniture pieces or behind your dining table. You can also hang several small mirrors on your wall the way you hang paintings.

4) Explore different lighting options

Lights can play a crucial role in the way your home looks, but only if used smartly. If you have a small home, avoid chandeliers and other light fixtures which jut out. Instead, use recessed lighting which will help conserve space. Also, where possible, create avenues for natural light to come in.

5) Make use of smart storage

And last, but definitely not the least, avoid clutter. The market is abuzz with space saving furniture options.  Use multipurpose tables which can be folded away or buy a couch which can be pulled out into a bed and other. You can install cupboards which can fold away into the wall or ceiling to store your excess baggage without leaving it lying around. You can also consider using cantilever furniture which occupies less space and also looks elegant.
