Simple Tricks to Make Your House Look Bigger


All homeowners wish for more space. Whether your house is small or simply cluttered, below are some tips to add space and light to your home:


Build Extra Storage under the Stairs

You can create additional storage under stairwells to avoid clutter. To do this, you need quality plasterboard and a hand saw for DIY projects.

Before getting started, make sure that the area has no electric cables behind the wall. If you’re looking for quality plasterboards, you may purchase online from eBay or from manufacturers of gypsum-based products like Gyprock.

Use Light Colours

If you want to make your room look larger, you can paint it with light colours. Using the same colours for the walls and ceiling allow the eyes to travel continuously around the room, making it look more spacious.

Remove Curtains

Illuminate a room by using venetian blinds instead of curtains. Blinds allow you to control the light, and having them face down towards the windows gets reflected light from the outside up onto your ceiling.

If you feel like the walls of your house are closing in on you, then it may be time to remodel. You don’t have to spend too much, though. With the use of quality plaster, good paint and nice Venetian blinds, you can make your small house bigger than it actually is.
