5 Ways to Make a Small Room Feel Spacious

Norden 2 Pc. Nesting Tables from The RoomPlace
Featured Image: Norden 2 Pc. Nesting Tables from The RoomPlace

When you’re planning to design or redecorate a room, one of the first things to consider is the size of the space. If you’re working with a living room, bedroom or dining room that’s on the smaller end of the spectrum, you’ll be faced with some unique challenges that can make it difficult to choose the right furniture and décor.

Thankfully, we’re here to help, with a few top tips on making any small room feel more spacious.

#1: Choose Furniture Carefully

The furniture you choose—and how you arrange it—can make or break the space. Here are a handful of suggestions for choosing and arranging your furniture in a way that helps the room seem bigger:

  • Opt for multipurpose furniture when possible, such as an expandable dining table, nesting side tables or a sleeper sofa, to maximize available floor space.

  • Choose some furniture that’s the same color as the walls. It will help those items blend in and help expand the room.
Roxbury Gray Loveseat from The RoomPlace

  • If you don’t have the space to comfortably fit a full-size sofa, a loveseat makes a great alternative that takes up less floor space.
Nottingham Accent Chair from The RoomPlace
Image: Nottingham Accent Chair from The RoomPlace
  • Chairs with slim or open arms tend to have a smaller profile and lighter appearance.
  • Avoid blocking walkways. If you have to walk around furniture the moment you enter a room, it will instantly feel small and cramped. Arrange furniture out and away from pathways.
  • The largest furniture, like bookshelves, a bed frame or an entertainment center, should be pushed against a wall to maximize open space.

#2: Leave Open Space

You can’t achieve a spacious, open look if there’s too much clutter in the room. When choosing your furniture and designing the room, make sure you leave plenty of open floor space to keep a balanced appearance and help the space seem larger. Avoid arranging your living room furniture too close together—you should leave enough space to comfortably walk between your coffee table, sofa, loveseat and/or chairs.

#3: Use Light Colors

Light, neutral hues reflect more light than dark colors, making a room feel airy and maximizing the appearance of spaciousness. Creative use of contrast—such as painting the trim a lighter color than the walls—can also trick the eye into thinking the room is larger than it really is.

Linon Quatrefoil Gray Area Rug from The RoomPlace

#4: Size Your Rugs Correctly

One common mistake many people make is choosing a rug that’s too large for the room. While large area rugs can help the room appear bigger by drawing the eye across the space, you should keep at least 18 inches of bare floor exposed around the edge of the room to ensure it doesn’t seem crowded.

#5: Add a Mirror to Your Décor

Mirrors are one easy way to give the illusion of depth and space in a small room. Since they reflect light, they can simultaneously make the room appear brighter and larger. There’s no need to go overboard with mirrors on each wall, but a single large mirror on a main wall is a great idea.

5 Ways to Add Color to Your Neutral Space

Barrington Red Linen Sofa from The RoomPlace

Like many homeowners, you might have a certain room in the house that feels a little dreary. If the room is feeling like a bit of a blank slate with one too many neutral tones, you’re probably looking for a way to bring a touch of color and brightness to the space. Even if you prefer neutral colors, a pop of something more vibrant here and there is a great way to help the space feel more complete and expressive.

Let’s take a look at five easy ways to add color to a neutral room.

Jacoby Accent Chair from The RoomPlace

1. Go for Bold Furniture

If your furniture is drab and outdated, it might be time to go shopping! If you’re worried about replacing a neutral living room set with something more colorful, have no fear—bold and eye-catching sofas and chairs are right on trend. You can’t go wrong with a pop of color like a luxurious red sofa or a striking aqua accent chair.

2. Add Color Underfoot

If you aren’t ready to take the plunge with colorful furniture, there are plenty of other options that add color in a more subtle way. For starters, you can add personality with an area rug in a color that pops. Choose a hue that complements the existing neutral tones in your space.

3. Paint an Accent Wall

If you want some color in your room but don’t want to go all-out and paint every wall, consider an accent wall. A pop of color on the room’s central wall adds instant charm and refreshes the space beautifully.

4. Bring the Outdoors In

It’s a simple suggestion, but it can create a dramatic effect. Simply decorating your space with a few well-placed plants adds freshness and color to your space. Whether you like the simplicity of potted houseplants or you want to arrange fresh-cut flowers, the stunning greens of foliage are sure to make any room feel brighter and more colorful.

5. Accessorize with Personality

If your space seems to lack character, the solution could be as simple as adding a few coordinating accessories in an accent color. This way, you can keep the color palette mostly neutral and add as many colorful pieces as you want. Choose an accent color you like and find a few home accents to arrange around the room. A couple throw pillows, a bold table lamp and a coordinating pouf are all you need to bring the room together.
