Whether you’re in a small apartment or a big villa, there’s always the need to have a spacious home. It’s just nice to live in and makes your place feel more welcoming.
A cramped space not only looks aesthetically unpleasing, but it can also affect your well-being making you feel stressed and irritable. If you wish to achieve more space in your home, here are some easy steps you can take.
1. Add More Light
Keep those dark, heavy curtains away and bring in the light. During day time, you’ll want to keep your windows open to bring in more light and air. The natural light will really open up the area and emphasize your interior decor.
For night time, you’ll want to utilize all the lights you have available. Consider putting lamps in poorly illuminated areas. Think warm, soft lighting. That way, the room still feels relaxing even with the added lights.

- The greatest benefit is to offer you a real dark environment, bringing you a good night’s sleep during the day
- The effect of absorbing sound is 2 times higher than the ordinary 1-layer of curtains so that at any time you are not disturbed by noise
- Draperies constructed with 2 layers are all triple weave blackout fabric
2. Add Multiple Mirrors
Mirrors can do a lot in making your space feel bigger. If you are working with little natural light, mirrors will enhance the brightness of a room provided you position it correctly. If you have a view outside of your room, place the mirror on the side of the wall so it’s facing the view. This way, you’ll always catch a sight of what’s outside.

3. Add Vertical Storage
This principle can be applied in almost any part of your home. If you have excess stuff that’s cluttering your space whether it’s the spices in your kitchen, the books in your living room, or the toiletries in your bathroom, you can easily fix the problem with vertical storage shelving. It gives a home to your items without taking up space on your floor or counters.

4. Choose The Right Furniture
When we think of adding more space, we might resort to getting rid of furniture. However, it doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes, it’s about picking the right furniture and placing them in the right places.
For example, a modular sofa could make your room look bigger but if it’s positioned too close to the coffee table, it might make it difficult to navigate the living room. Give some balance of space between your furniture so you can walk through a room with ease.

5. Put Clutter Away
Clutter can make a room feel small and disorganized. Make an effort to get rid of them every now and then. You have the option to sell, throw them away or donate to your local charity.
Moving forward, you can avoid having to throw unwanted items by being deliberate about what you bring into your house. Avoid impulse buying and only get it if you really need it. You can even make a rule that if you bring in something new, you have to get rid of two items from your home.
If you must keep some of these items, at least find a home for them. This is where storage comes in handy. We now have genius storage solutions that can hide things in plain sight.
Items like an ottoman chair, an open shelf coffee table, and an under-bed storage are great at storing items that you might need later.

6. Create Organizational Zones
When you live in a small space, one room can instantly turn into a multi-purpose area. Instead of just throwing everything together, it’s better to create zones. This prevents clutter from building up since you know exactly where each item belongs. Books belong in the reading nook, tech items in the office area, food in the dining area, and so on.
7. Use an Off-Site Storage Space
If you’re really struggling to find more space in your home, you can use an off-site storage space. They’re available in different sizes to fit your storage needs. Here, you can store items that you can retrieve later such as important documents, off-season clothes, sentimental items, etc.
