Making a small space feel larger involves clever design strategies that maximise space and create an illusion of openness. Here are some tips to help you achieve this.

Light Colours - Use light colours for walls, floors and furniture to reflect light and create a sense of spaciousness.

Multi-Functional Furniture - Opt for furniture pieces that serve multiple purposes such as a storage ottoman or a sofa bed.

Strategic Lighting - Incorporate various lighting sources to brighten up the space and eliminate dark corners.

Mirrors - Place mirrors strategically to reflect light and create the illusion of depth in the room.

Minimalism - Keep the space clutter free and avoid overly bulky furniture to maintain an open feel.

Vertical Space - Use glass or lucite furniture pieces to maintain a sense of openness and visual flow.

Eliminate Visual Barriers - Open up sightlines by avoiding heavy curtains or dividers that block natural light and segment the space.

Scale and Proportion - Choose furniture and decor items that are proportionate to the size of the room to maintain balance.

Flooring - Use consistent flooring throughout to create a seamless look the enhances the perceived size of the space.

By implementing these strategies, you can optimise your small space to feel more spacious, airy and inviting.
