Check out these top tips on making your home look and feel bigger
Utilise natural light
There’s nothing better than natural light for creating a sense of well-being and helping to make a room appear bigger and floor-to-ceiling doors are a great way of doing this. Everest Bi-Fold doors provide an innovative way to help you open up the space in your home – linking indoor and outdoor areas to allow light to flood into your home, as well as taking up less space than standard doors.
These expertly crafted doors can be designed to suit almost any style, offering a number of benefits which make them a worthwhile investment for your home. Made from glass with smart, weather-resistant aluminium frames, they can help to insulate your home, as they’re designed for minimum heat loss and optimum insulation, reflecting heat back into the room. In terms of security, they feature a high-quality locking system for ultimate safety, and are also safe against external removal of glass for total peace of mind.
Everest’s exclusive bi-fold designs are all made-to-measure for a perfect fit, so that you can create a bespoke solution for your home, whatever its size or design. The innnovative design provides a seamless transition from inside to outside, plus they’re available in a range of finishes to suit your property.
Get your furniture right
Ensuring you have the right furniture in your home can make all the difference. While it’s generally known that bright, light colours help to make a room feel airy, the size of furniture is also important. Make sure you pick items that are not too large for the space. For example, choosing the right sofa is important for the overall feel and size of your room, remember sofas look smaller in the shop than they will do in your living room.
Again, many people will be aware of using mirrors to create the illusion of space – but how and where you use the mirrors is just as important. Using mirrors at the end of a long room or hallway can create the impression of length, while mirrors in front of windows will help reflect the light. Placing two mirrors opposite each other to get an infinite reflection, will help make the room look bigger.
Make the most of your curtains
Curtains can also be used to make a room appear larger. If you extend your curtain rail beyond the height and width of the windows, it gives the impression that the window is bigger and the ceiling is taller. Always ensure that curtains hang clear of the window to let in as much light as possible.
Have a clear out
It’s an incredibly simple thing to do, but decluttering a room can make a big difference to how big the space feels. Declutter window sills to make the most of the natural light, keep surfaces free of clutter by utilising the space in your cupboards and boxing up any unused items.
