Do you feel your rooms are too small, the ceilings aren’t tall enough, or do you need more cabinet space? Whether you are selling a condo or planning to move into a condo, we are sure that you are wondering how to make your condo in the CWE feel more SPACIOUS!
Having sold condos for years, We’ve got a few ideas to help you make your condo feel more spacious. A little creative thinking can make even the most cramped spaces feel more spacious.
Putting a mirror in the right place can make a small space look more spacious. It is optimal to place the mirror opposite of windows instead of putting it next to them. The mirror will reflect more sunlight illuminating the room and giving a more spacious look.
Remember to avoid using mirrors if your condo does not have a window you can use on the opposite wall.
Painting does play a role in giving a roomy and comfortable look. The lighter and brighter the color, the better it is. Light colors reflect more sunlight, giving the room a warm, airy, and welcoming feel. Off-white can be a good choice, but you can go for other colors like lavender, yellow, light pink, and so on.
Painting the ceiling can create a spacious feeling. Another idea you can use is hanging shelves, which will also add to your storage and would not take up any floor space. Interestingly, anything that can grab the eyes’ attention upwards would make the room look more spacious.
Hidden storage is an excellent way to get a roomy feel to any space. For instance, you can use a coffee table with hidden storage, kitchen drawers, or a platform bed with drawers. You can use such storage to hide appliances, books, or anything that makes the room look cluttered.
Clutter doesn’t give that roomy and comfortable feel you want.
When it comes to decorating, I suggest keeping it minimalistic. Getting a few larger furniture pieces is a better option than smaller ones. It creates a cleaner and less cramped look while giving the room visual balance.
Bonus, IKEA can be your spot in St. Louis, to find furniture or inspirational home décor!
