8 Ways to Make Your Apartment Appear Larger

Small space with big ideas? We know the feeling! Luckily, you don’t have to feel like the small square footage of your apartment is closing in on you. We’ve gathered 8 hacks to make your apartment feel larger… without knocking down walls!

Exposed Storage

Expose your apartment! Exposed wardrobes or removing the bi-fold doors from your closet will make your bedroom appear larger rather than being confound to closed wall (just make sure your closet is de-cluttered).

Stay Cool

Using cool, light colors in a small space has the potential of making any room appear larger. An all-white room isn’t for everyone which is why we recommend utilizing shades of white.

Storage and Seating in One

Let’s be more efficient here. A storage ottoman or bench is a more practical choice when you don’t have a lot of space to work with. 

This is a Clutter-Free Zone

As you know, small spaces call for smaller furnishings. Stick to a petite nightstand without a lamp. But, what about lighting? Try mounting a light to the wall to save space (if your apartment permits).

Multitasking Furniture

We get it – a tiny bedroom doesn’t leave much space for a desk, dresser and nightstand; so, we’re combing them all. Consider a desk that could act as all three!

Double The Space

One of the easiest ways to make a room appear larger is to decorate with mirrors. The reflection of the light throughout your apartment will give the illusion of a larger space. Our motto = the bigger the mirror, the better!

Tall, Taller, Tallest

Another hack for making a space appear larger is by hanging window treatments above the actual window. By raising your drapes up to the ceiling, you’ll draw attention to the height of the room, making the space feel larger. 

Mix & Match

Add more depth to your living room by layering and mixing patterns with contrasting colors and different sizes.
