How to Make a Room Look Bigger

Rearranging furniture

It may sound obvious, but a simple rearrangement of furniture can go a long way when you’re looking to make a room feel bigger and more open. While the task can be daunting, with the right approach, it’s possible to create a cosy and inviting space regardless of size. You may start by rearranging the items on the floor or go so far as to install wall shelves and remove bulky wardrobes, allowing you to create a sense of openness in the space.

Adjusting lights

Some different ways to make a room look bigger is by playing with lights. Natural light is the best so, when possible, keep your curtains open and let the sunshine brighten up your room. If you don’t have access to natural light, try adding some lamps or overhead lighting to make the space feel brighter. You can contact AQWA Constructions for the best lighting fixtures that will create a more spacious and open environment in your room.

Removing doors

Sometimes, less is more, even when doors are involved. Removing doors from their hinges will open the space and create much-needed flow through your home. Don’t be quick to act, because there are some doors that are vital for privacy, such as the bedrooms and bathrooms while doors diving the kitchen and dining room may best be removed. With this task, however, you’ll need the assistance of a skilled team as removing doors results in damaged frames. The team at AQWA Constructions are ready to assist you when it comes to permanently removing doors from your interior.

Removing walls

When removing doors isn’t enough, there’s always the option of knocking down walls to create a bigger space. Depending on the size of the room and the overall layout of your home, you could knock down the wall connecting the kitchen and dining room to create one large space. In many apartments, there’s usually a second room that isn’t quite large enough to be deemed a bedroom. Oftentimes this room is turned into a study or reading area. One option on how to make a room look bigger is to knock down the walls of this room and create a unique nook for your studies and workspace. Each room differs in its requirements for an open space, and the team at AQWA Constructions will find the best solution for you.

Rework the bathroom

Oftentimes, the room that feels most cramped is the bathroom. This is especially so if your home was built over forty years ago when there was more emphasis on large bedrooms and living rooms. These days, having a little more space in our most private rooms is sought after by more households. So, a few ways to make a room look bigger is by removing large bathroom sinks and replacing them with smaller ones or, if you find you shower more than you bathe, you may forgo the bathtub in favour of more floor space. Thankfully, you don’t have to undertake this task on your own. AQWA Constructions will take any bathroom renovation ideas you have and make them a reality!
