Thinking of purchasing a home but aren’t sure if it’s big enough? Here are creative tips to get your place to feel larger. Who knows, do all 5 and you may be able to hear an echo*!

1. Hang big mirrors

This timeless method still works wonders. It creates the illusion that a room is bigger than it actually is without actually knocking down any walls.

2. Install floor-to-ceiling bookshelves

You may think doing this will crowd your space but it actually adds depth. Plus, bookshelves allow for more storage and less clutter.

3. Paint it white

White paint gives your space an airy essence. If you do want color, opt to paint one accent wall a contrasting color to add depth.

4. Section off your space

Divide and conquer! Designate certain parts of your living space for different needs. Room dividers can help you to achieve this.

5. Hang artwork high

Try to keep your hanging artwork above eye level. This will give your space the illusion that the ceilings are higher.
