Moving into a smaller condominium or ranch doesn’t mean you have to feel cramped inside your space. In fact, you can easily make your space feel bigger by thinking outside the box. From reflecting light to adding depth, there are plenty of ways to make your space feel bigger and brighter.

Are you ready to transform your space into the place you’ve always wanted? Use the following tips to make your small space feel bigger.

1. Clear Out The Clutter

It’s easy to accumulate clutter because life happens. Mail happens. Laundry happens. Now, it’s time to make decluttering happen. Sort through your items to determine what should be donated, discarded and kept. Then, come up with an organizational system for the items you’re keeping. Removing the clutter creates more space, and it makes the room feel more open and airy. It also keeps you from feeling cramped inside a small space.

2. Let In The Natural Light

Letting in the natural light is one of the easiest ways to make your space feel bigger. Open the curtains during the day to let the natural light flow through your space. Even if it’s cloudy outside, you’re still letting natural light into your condominium. If you want a little privacy, you can always go for sheer, lightweight curtains, especially in spring or summer. At night, close the curtains and let your task and ambient lighting brighten your space.

3. Reflect Light With Mirrors

Speaking of making your space feel bigger with light, you can enhance this trick by strategically placing mirrors around your ranch. For example, placing a mirror near the window makes your space feel brighter by reflecting light. Mirrors also create the illusion of more space by reflecting the room itself. The best part is, you can find mirrors in various sizes and styles to go with your interior design.

4. Invest In Furniture With Higher Legs

Another way to make your condominium feel bigger is by investing in furniture with higher legs, rather than pieces that are closer to the floor or have skirted legs. Your furniture doesn’t have to be too high off the floor, but you want your legs to be just high enough to see the floor. Investing in furniture with higher legs reduces the visual barrier and increases air circulation, and this is another way to create an open, airy room.

5. Add Height To The Room

Finally, you can make your ranch feel bigger by adding more height to each room. The trick is to draw the eye upward. You may want to add crown molding, or maybe you want to hang a curtain or artwork closer to the ceiling. You can even invest in a tall shelf or bookcase, which is also perfect for decluttering and organizing. Wallpaper is another great way to make the ceiling feel higher.

With the right tips and tricks, you can easily make your small space feel bigger. The result? Living in the condominium or ranch you’ve always had in mind.
