How a Handyman Connection Craftsman Can Make a Small Space Seem Bigger

When attractively decorated, there’s a lot to be said for small rooms. Whether it’s a living room or bedroom, small rooms can be quaint, cozy, and comforting. What you don’t want, however, is a space that feels cramped. If you’re not careful, an otherwise cozy little room can make you feel claustrophobic. Thankfully, a Handyman Connection craftsman can make a few simple changes to help make that small space appear to be much bigger than it really is.

Lighter Colors

Painting and decorating a room in light colors is a tried and true method for expanding a small space. While you might prefer a dark, dramatic color scheme, these simply don’t work well in small rooms. Hiring a Handyman Connection craftsman to paint your room in an off-white or ivory shade can have the effect of dramatically expanding its look.

A Generous Use of Mirrors

We’ve all been in a room in someone’s home or in a restaurant that seems really big only to discover that there’s a mirrored wall. That’s because the effect always works! If your living or dining room is small, a couple mirrors on the walls will both visibly expand the space and spread light around, brightening the room even further. If your bedroom is space-challenged, having a Handyman Connection craftsman install mirrored closet doors will have a similar effect.

Striped Walls                          

Just as vertical stripes on an outfit will make the wearer appear more slender, vertical striped walls can make a room seem taller. If you’re happy with the height of a room, but would like it to be wider, this can be accomplished with the use of horizontal stripes. Either can be accomplished by a Handyman Connection craftsman with a new paint job or by applying the right kind of wallpaper.

Update the Flooring

It’s not just lightly colored walls and furniture that can help expand a room, the floors can make a big difference as well. Ideally, you can have a Handyman Connection craftsman replace those dark floors — whether carpeting or hardwood — with brighter ones, but if that’s not an option, lightly colored area rugs can produce a similar effect.

Built-In Storage Cabinets

If you have a small bathroom, a traditional storage cabinet takes up a lot of room. A Handyman Connection craftsman can help you get more room out of your bathroom by  utilizing the extra space that already exists within the walls. A built-in storage cabinet is an effective and attractive solution to a cramped bathroom.

When it comes to solving household problems like small, crowded rooms, Handyman Connection craftsmen have all sorts of solutions for every type of home. To learn how we can help you, give us a call today or request an estimate.
