Simple Design Ideas To Transform Your Living Area

Making more space might seem like a difficult task especially if you don’t have the budget to extend. In many cases, there’s a range of things you can do to make more room in your home without tearing down the walls. These ideas often use your original living spaces to give the illusion of more room, and with strategic interior design, you can make clever use of your home without spending too much money. As homes vary in style and size, it can often be difficult to know where to start and what might work for your property. Open plan living can make the illusion of space appear more apparent, but in this space, clutter is more noticeable. With many rooms, you have the issue of feeling like specific areas are closed off from the other living spaces. So take a look at some of the things you can do to save space and make more room for your family.


One of the first things you need to do before anything in your home is to have a massive clear out. You will probably accumulate tons of stuff over the years, and this will start to protrude into the liveable areas in your property. Decluttering offers you a fresh start and a whole new perspective of a space, which gives you a better chance of updating it without distractions. It’s not just the small things that should be sorted either, as significant, bulky furniture that is no longer needed can be removed to free up more space.

Opt for light colours

Dark paint can make a room feel smaller especially if you already started with a small room. Lighter colours bounce light from the walls and make it feel airy and fresh without overwhelming the space. Other features that can make a room feel fussy are wood panelling or wallpaper with large patterns. These can often overcrowd a small room and subconsciously make you feel like there is less living space.

Blend your heat sources into the design

Radiators are often a significant feature in a room so incorporating them into the design makes them appear less noticeable and bulky. There is a vast selection of traditional and contemporary horizontal radiators to choose from and merging this into your d├ęcor will create the illusion of more space.

Add mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to bounce light around a room and this, in turn, will help create the illusion of space. If you have a particularly small room, putting a mirror on the opposite wall to a window will make sure optimum light is reflected back into the space. Mirrors can also make a room appear warmer as there is more light getting into the area, which makes it a cosier and welcoming place to be.

Just changing some simple things around the home enables you to work with the space better and create a comfortable environment for you and your family.
