3 Great Ways to Make Small Spaces Seem Larger

pexels-photo-89829-mediumIf you want to sell your home for the best price possible, you have to present it in its best form. Large homes are easy to stage in a variety of ways. But what if you have a smaller home? Well, here are a few ways you can make best use of your space and make a great impression on potential buyers.

Stand Out With a Statement Piece

You might think that unique furniture or decorations will overtake small living spaces, but that’s not the case. A statement piece can make your home more memorable and create more interest from potential buyers. It’s easy to overdo it by stuffing several bright and quirky pieces into a small area. Rather select just one or two items that give off the vibe you’re looking for to highlight the area.

Great Lighting Does Wonders

Have you ever noticed how different the inside of a house looks on a sunny day than a gloomy day? Lighting can have a huge impact on how rooms are perceived. Ideally, you want to make best use of natural lighting as much as possible. Also, make sure there is enough lighting installed to illuminate small spaces properly. Correct lighting can make small spaces look larger, but bad lighting can have the opposite effect.

Make a Room Pop with an Accent Wall

Homeowners sometimes decide against an accent wall because they worry that a bold color would minimize the look of a space. Quite the opposite is true. Using a brightly colored accent wall can really maximize an area. And just like statement pieces, they are a great way for your home to stand out from the rest. Make sure the color isn’t too overwhelming or tasteless for the wall it serves. Accent walls also work especially well in tiny bathrooms.

Staging a small home can present some challenges. However, if you use some creative techniques, you can achieve better results than you would with a large home. Instead of looking at small spaces as a disadvantage, use them to your advantage to make your home appeal to more buyers.
