Getting your own house is an achievement on its own but not a lot of people have the
money to buy those expensive and luxurious houses.
In today’s article, I will talk about some interior design magic that will help make your
house a bit bigger than it actually is.
Take Advantage of Natural Lighting
Every house is fitted with windows and doors and it is best that you opt for doors that
have some glass on them. This is so that you can take advantage of natural lighting.
When your house is well illuminated by the rays of the sun, the glass and the mirrors
that are inside your house will allow light to bounce off in almost all aspects of your home.
Pay particularly close attention to your living room as you want this area to have the
best natural lighting among all of your other rooms.
Buy ‘Raised’ Furniture
If you are going to buy your couch and chairs, it is important that you buy taller ones.
Taller furniture would create this sense of light and space and would give the illusion
that your house is actually bigger than it actually is.
Make Your Ceiling Look Higher
Logically, a small house would only warrant small furniture, right? Well, if you are not
bothered by the aesthetics, then that is the most logical thing to do. However, since we
want to somehow fool people into believing that your house is bigger than it actually is,
you would want to opt for bigger furniture instead.
For example, if you are going to purchase a wall-to-wall bookcase as your home décor,
that would give the impression that your ceiling is higher and at the same time, there is
more space than you’ve previously thought.
Use Neutral Colors
Part of minimalist design is to make use of neutral colors or colors that are just there to
accentuate your chosen pieces. These are not bold or punchy colors and would serve
as a great backdrop for what you already have.
That being said, some great examples of neutral colors include beige, white, or gray.
Why should you use these colors than any other colors out there? Well, that is because
these colors could instantly give the impression that your space is much bigger than
what people initially thought.
Find the Best Angle for Your Furniture
Naturally, you want to put your furniture in a way that invites conversation. You would
usually put them in a U-shaped orientation as this is a natural way that people can talk
with each other.
That being said, take advantage of certain angles. You need not follow a complete U-
shaped orientation but it certainly helps if you manipulate the arrangement in such a
way that it still invites conversation while also making your house look big.
