How to Make a Space in your Condo Feel Larger Than It Is

Have a small space? Maybe you can’t push out the walls but you can make what you have seem so much bigger by using a few easy decorator tips.

Mirrors visually expand your space, add drama to your entry or dining area. All you need to do is simply frame out the entire wall and insetting a mirror. Mirrors can also be used above kitchen cabinetry to visually brighten a normally dark area.

Did you know there are multipurpose chairs in the market that can serve as chair and table at the same time? They are great for small spaces, and a great way to maximize materials and function.

Keep your furnishings in proportion with the size of your rooms. Use slim rockers, open-back chairs or a simple sofa or love seat rather than large furnishings that tend to overpower the space.

An open headboard is best for a small room. When arranging your furniture, keep the view at eye level unobstructed. Taller furnishings should be placed at the end of the room opposite its main entry.
The biggest secret to make your room appear spacious is by using light colors. A palette such as light green, blue, beige and tan can make your room more inviting.

Light and brightly colored walls are more reflective and once diffused, it could make the area appear larger. Lighter objects appear closer while darker or shadowed objects appear farther. When you paint your moldings a lighter color, the wall appears farther back – thus making your room appear bigger.
