Hi guys! Chelsea here from Making Manzanita where it's all about making your house a home you love. I love teaching overwhelmed women how to decorate their homes on a budget. Today I'm going to be chatting about something that I've learned the in's and out's of…;.how to make a small room feel bigger.

A couple of years ago we moved into a pretty small home and I had to employ all the tricks in the book of ‘;how to make a small room look bigger.' Living in a small home is a problem that I think a lot of us deal with. Fortunately, there are some tried and true tricks of the trade on ways to make a room feel larger. And today I'm spilling all the secrets!

Don't just hang your curtains to the top of your window frame. To really make your space look larger, hang your curtains all the way up to the ceiling like Elsie has done here in her Master Bathroom shown on A Beautiful Mess. This simple hack will help elongate the room height and make it feel much taller than it is. Be sure to buy the correct length of the curtains because you want them to hang all the way to the floor. Otherwise, it will look a bit like high water pants!

You will seriously be amazed as the dramatic transformation you can make by simply lightening up the color scheme of a room. Just look at what a big difference it made in Kristi's living room shown on Making It In The Mountains after they lightened the wall color and furniture. The room feels much larger now, doesn't it?

Adding an accent wall is a great way to make room feel larger. One of the many things we did during our farmhouse bathroom renovation shown on my blog was to add a simple faux shiplap wall behind the toilet. By giving the eye somewhere interesting to focus immediatelylinen pillow covers, you are distracted about the rather small size of the room and let me tell ya…;this bathroom is SMALL. You can see that we also lightened up the color scheme and replaced the toilet with one a little taller, which helps make the room feel a bit taller (just like that hanging the curtains higher trick!).

Ditch the dated blinds and let the natural light in! Emphasizing and increasing the amount of natural light makes a huge difference in making a small room feel bigger. You can see here that Shannon from AKA Design removed the blinds and let the natural light pour in her living room. She also lightened up the color scheme, which made a big difference.

Statement art is another great way to make a room feel larger. Statement art is just how it sounds…;large art that really makes a statement in the room. It gives the eye somewhere to focus, and hopefully the art is interesting and appealing. Our very own Tasha from Kaleidoscope Living has done a great job in her master bedroom with adding statement art. Adding the interest to the walls not only adds tons of character to the room, but makes it feel larger.

Another tried and true trick to make a room feel larger is to add a mirror in the room. Mirrors help bounce light around a room, which helps by boosting the amount of natural light in the space. Plus, there's something about the reflection in the mirror and seeing “;more”; room that really makes an impact and make a room feel larger. Erin from DIY Passion has done a great job at incorporating this hack in her bedroom (she also added a colorful accent wall, which I LOVE).

There's no surprise that if there is less clutter in a room, it will definitely feel larger. One of the best ways to make a room feel larger is to include smart storage that provides lots of storage, without taking up a ton of floor space. Sara from Twelve on Main has done a great job in her farmhouse master bedroom with adding in these built-ins and window seat to create functional and beautiful storage on a wall that wouldn't have been very useful otherwise.
