4 Ways to Make a Small Room Look Larger

Decorating a small room can be challenging – but don’t let that cramp your style! With the right design tips and techniques, you can create a nice retreat out of a snug space. Progressive Builders has put together four tips on how to make the most out of a small area.

  1. Think vertical.
    Take advantage of the vertical space in your room to keep things neat and organized. You can maximize storage by installing floating shelves to add books and baskets to. You can also give the illusion of a taller space by hanging your curtains higher.
  2. Utilize mirrors.
    Mirrors have the unique ability to act like additional windows when placed correctly in a room. Besides adding depth, decorative mirrors can create a focal point and some visual interest. Consider adding multiple mirrors in a group, or a large mirror to create the illusion of more space.
  3. Maximize storage.
    When dealing with small areas, it’s important to focus on keeping surfaces clear for a less cluttered feel. Large baskets, rolling drawers, and bins are useful for extra storage and can be placed underneath your bed.
  4. Let the light shine in.
    Light bouncing off the walls can blur the edges of your room, giving it a larger feel. If your room is blessed with many windows, then you’re already on your way to a larger-looking space. If not, you can still create the look of more square footage. Add a soft overhead light with a frosted shade to create a more calming ambiance.

While it may seem difficult, there are many ways to ensure that a bedroom is both stylish and functional. Whether you’re looking to add space to a bedroom or any other room in your home, Progressive Builders can help you make a statement! Contact us today for more information.
