Home Improvement / August 20, 2018
When it comes to homes, the larger the better, if you like plenty of space for family and belongings. More real estate may also mean your home feels more comfortable. However, expanding your living space is a major home improvement project. Fortunately, you can actually visually increase your home’s square footage and make it feel as if you are living in a more open and airier space. Read on as Handyman Connection® of Matthews explains how:
Use Larger Floor Tiles
Installing larger floor tiles instead of small ones can make your floor space appear larger, even if the tiles occupy the same area. The size of the tiles you use should be at least a few inches larger than the standard 12”. There are many tile designs to choose from, so give us a call if you need help deciding which design is best for your home.
Increase the Amount of Natural Light
Adding more sunlight into your living spaces can make your square footage look larger than it really is. You can easily do this by making sure you let more daylight in through your windows than usual. We recommend replacing heavy blinds with shades because shades have thinner and softer fabrics that let ample natural light into your home without compromising privacy.
Paint Your Rooms With Lighter Colors
Lighter colors reflect heat instead of absorbing it and helps establish the illusion that a room and floor space are bigger than they really are. Don’t use dark or loud colors; simply use lighter shades of your favorite tones. Instead of choosing navy blue, for example, choose baby blue. Colors like this make your rooms feel less stuffy and cramped.
Focus on Minimalist Decor
Less is more, if you want your home to feel larger and more open. Store or get rid of decor and furniture that you don’t need to free up some space, and try to follow a minimalist aesthetic. You’ll be surprised how big your floor space really is if you minimize your decoration.
