5 Home Renovations to Make Your Home Feel Bigger

5 Home Renovations to Make Your Home Feel Bigger
  • Opening Intro -

    If you are living in a small area, then you may be wondering how to make it bigger.

-------------------------------------

While you can always knock out a wall and expand the home’s footprint, there are other renovations that you can make that will make your home seem bigger. Here are five home renovations to make your home seem bigger that you might want to consider.

Paint

Painting a room a lighter color may make it seem larger. You may want to think about a warm shade of grey, aqua, light pink or white. You may want to avoid stark white, however, as it can make too powerful of a punch. Consider completing new door installation that is a slightly lighter color than you painted the room. You may even want to paint the ceiling a lighter color to make the room seem even larger.

Build a Bay Window

A bay window is a wonderful addition to many small rooms. It is a project that many homeowners can complete by themselves in a weekend. After installing the bay window like the ones available from rwcnj.com, then build seating in it. The person sitting on the seating can enjoy a great view of the outside and there will be more seating in the room without making it look smaller.

Construct Storage

Reducing clutter in a room can make it look bigger. Think about building extra shelves near the ceiling and filling them with interesting objects. This will naturally draw people’s eyes up and make a small room look bigger. It may also help to reduce the clutter appearance of a room as long as you can stop yourself from buying more stuff to fill the new shelves.

Add Light

Before you head out to try to find a new place to rent or buy, you may want to think about letting some more light into your current one. Using no curtains or sheer fabric ones encourages more light to come in the windows. If you really need to use thicker ones, then choose ones that are the same color as the walls in a room. Otherwise, add some interesting light fixtures near the ceiling to draw people’s attention up even if that means you need to renovate to add electricity in the right places.

 

Install New Flooring

When dark flooring is combined with light colored walls, then a room will appear bigger. Lay tile or hardwood floor at a diagonal to create the illusion of more space. If you want a carpeted floor, then consider using carpet squares and laying them diagonally.

There are many ways that you can renovate to make your current place look bigger. In the end, however, if your current place is too small, then you may want to find a new one to move to soon.
