How to make a small home feel bigger


There are plenty of reasons to love small homes & apartments and by using some clever tricks to make them seem bigger, it’s possible to love them even more.

The magic of mirrors

Mirrors are definitely on trend now and the general feeling is the bigger, the better. Mirrors and glass surfaces are a must-have in small spaces. They are the two most effective tools when styling a small space. Mirrors reflect to create the illusion of more space,  and transparent surfaces, such as glass-topped dining and coffee tables, don’t bulk up rooms.

  • Consider replacing hanging artworks with mirrors and solid wardrobe doors with sliding mirror doors.
  • A mirror strategically placed near a balcony or large window can bring the skyline into a room, immediately making it seem more open.

Keep it light

Forget dark, heavy colours and think light, neutral tones. Crisp, white paint always feels welcoming. In addition to adding texture, feature walls can also give a cozy room an extra dimension of depth.

  • Choose a feature colour from a light and bright palette.

Bring the outside in

Create an airy, fresh look in any studio apartment with indoor plants. Indoor plants have a softening effect, they bring the outside in.

  • Choose plants over flowers as they live longer.

Using these simple tips will help your home feel more spacious. If you are ready to expand a bit, of course Tasbuilt Homes has many excellent home designs that make fantastic use of space.
