Three tips for making a small room instantly feel larger

Many homeowners wish that some of the rooms in their abodes were a bit larger, but there's only so much you can do about the amount of space in your house. That being said, it's important to know how to create interior designs that cater to areas with limited room.

Bringing in bulky furniture, dark discount window treatments and deep-colored carpeting can instantly make a small living space feel even more cramped. Here are some tips on how to create the illusion of more room in an area that could use some help.

1. Add more light.
As reports, rooms with a small amount of space can greatly benefit from more light. Natural light is the best option - consider bringing in custom window shades that allow sunlight to flow into the space throughout the day. When the sun sets, be sure you have plenty of lighting fixtures to keep the room bright and functional. This tactic is simplistic, but it works.

2. Use reflective surfaces.
If you don't have much natural light flowing into the room but you want to make it feel larger, you may want to consider bringing in more reflective surfaces, such as side tables with glossy or glass tops. Mirrors on your walls can also quickly make any space feel dramatically larger.

3. Opt for bright colors.
Dark hues might create a sense of coziness in a space, but they can also make a room feel smaller than it already is. To avoid doing this, use bright colors throughout your small area to create a sense of openness. Choose pastel hues for your furniture and wall paint to enhance the interior design. These three tips can be the difference between a confined room and one that welcomes you and your guests.
