Is there a room in your house that’s a bit on the smaller side? Because of its size, the room might feel cramped, stuffy, or cluttered. Fortunately, there are several ways you can make the most of these intimate spaces in your home. With a few adjustments, you can even expand the look of small rooms! Read along for a few tips.

Use Light Paint Colors

Sometimes, nothing works better than a fresh coat of paint to add more space to your small room. By choosing a lighter color for your walls, you can trick the naked eye into making the space feel much more open. However, you’ll want to avoid using pure white – it can look strange in small spaces. Instead, opt for a shade like pale blue, light grey, or neutral tan!

Add a Large Mirror

Mirrors can easily double the look of a small room – especially large ones that take up most of the wall. To expand your space, invest in a large, wall-mounted mirror that can keep light bouncing around the room. You can add a large vanity over the bathroom sink or mount a mirror across the windows of a small kitchen to keep light pouring into the room.

Decorate with Houseplants

Do you have a green thumb? Consider buying a few houseplants and scattering them throughout the smaller rooms in your home. They’ll make the space more breathable and (seemingly) more open. If your plants don’t tend to last long, you can purchase a fake plant or another natural decorative element.

Increase Lighting

A well-lit room can feel airy and spacious. Try increasing the brightness of your space by strategically incorporating more lighting throughout the room to light up nooks and crannies. It’s a good idea to orient lighting in a way where it sweeps across the surfaces of the room, spreading light evenly and giving the space a warm, welcoming feel. You can use light sources that are warm and dissipate light throughout the room.

Declutter the Space

It may not come as a surprise to know that clutter can easily make a small room feel cramped. It’s a good idea to keep only furniture that’s absolutely necessary for your home’s smallest rooms. Try to keep it minimalistic and get rid of any clutter. For example, make sure your small kitchen’s countertops are clean and free of unnecessary appliances. In your bathroom, move toiletries from on top of the sink into a cabinet. Taking these steps can help even the tiniest rooms feel cozy and inviting.

As you can see, it’s entirely possible to make small rooms feel big and spacious. If you’re hoping to brighten up an intimate space in your home, a fresh coat of paint can go a long way in accomplishing that!
