Have a Small Room? Make Your Space Feel Larger by Avoiding These Mistakes!

If you want a small room to feel more spacious, there are certain design tricks you want to embrace—and certain design tricks you want to avoid.

A recent article from outlined common mistakes that can make rooms feel smaller, including:

  • Dark walls. Dark colors draw the eye inward—which can make a space seem smaller. So, while dark walls can work in a large, open room, if your room is on the smaller side, you will want to stick to neutral or light colors for the walls to create the illusion of more space.

  • Too much furniture. Packing too many pieces of furniture into a room can make it feel small, cramped, and crowded. If you are working with a small space—and want to make it feel larger—stick to a few key, functional pieces (and make sure there is plenty of space for people to maneuver around each piece of furniture).

  • Too many colors or patterns. Incorporating too many colors and patterns into a room can feel visually overwhelming—and can make a small space feel even smaller. If you are going to use bold colors or patterns, use them sparingly—and balance them out with an otherwise neutral, soothing palette.

The Takeaway:

So, what does this mean for you? If you are trying to make a small room look larger, it is important to understand what design mistakes to steer clear of today. That way, you can decorate your room in a way that maximizes the space—and makes your small room look larger, more open, and more spacious.
