Ways to Visually Increase Your Home’s Square Footage

The size of your home has an effect on its value, but that doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune to have a more spacious home. The key to making your home look and feel larger is visual space, and the best part is that you don’t have to spend as much as you would on a traditional remodel. Handyman Connection® of Boise shares simple, but effective ways to visually increase your home’s space.

Home’s Square Footage

Clear the Clutter

Clutter can take up a significant amount of your usable living space, and you probably never use most of that clutter. Free up space by selling some items that you haven’t used in two years. If there are items left over, consider adding attractive shelves in underused spaces, such as the corners of a room or the back of a door. Organizing clutter beats leaving it lying around.

Add a Large Mirror

Mirrors are excellent decorative features. An ornately gilded mirror adds an elegant look to the room while a plain steel-framed one complements contemporary spaces. A large mirror also reflects plenty of light, making the room look bigger and brighter. Maximize this effect by installing a single, large mirror instead of several small reflective surfaces to visually double the space.

Create Seamless Connections

Maintaining consistency in adjacent spaces creates the illusion of them being one big room. One way to do so is by using the same type of flooring material. If you need to replace materials, however, be sure you stay within the same color family. Using clear glass dividers instead of walls in your bathroom also has the same effect.

Some of these are simple enough to do on your own, but if you prefer more professional results, turn to Handyman Connection of Boise. Our highly trained team is equipped with the right tools to ensure quality services. Contact us at (208) 268-0088 to get a free estimate today.
