All it takes to create a spacious home is some energy, time, a strong family member or friend, and your willingness to put some effort in.
If you would like to any room to feel more spacious, here are some suggestions that could work.
Upgrade the traffic flow in your home
The way that you and your guests proceed through your house has a great effect on how roomy your home is. A mess won’t only annoy the people living in the space, but guests to your home too.
No one wants to fumble over someone else’s mess. Now is the perfect time to take a few minutes to walk through your house and see if the passages are open to walk freely or if they need to be navigated like a labyrinth.
Watch out for wide tables and slim walkways. If you regularly knock something off its surface, it's time to make an adjustment.
Reposition the area for a more minimal look
Your goal here is to get rid of the dense mood in the hallways and find equilibrium between light and heavy. Opt for placing singular pieces of furniture in a minimal way instead of cluttering them into one side of the room. This will open the space up to its natural light and the room will look more spacious. Experiment with the visual aesthetic by mixing up textures and colours and placing them in different parts of a room to see what sequence works. You should be able to scan the room and navigate your way through it in in a blink of an eye.
Clear surfaces and floors by storing non-daily objects
Declutter all the counters in the bathroom, kitchen and dining room. If you're not using the blender, store it until you do. Those toiletries that only serve a function once a month can also be put in the cupboard. Think minimal and this will help find space.
Clean those spots you keep forgetting
Think about the once upon a time white wall you had before the boyfriend, kids and pets. Try remember to clean the grease and marks instead of just leaving it there to build up. This will make a huge difference to spaciousness.
