There aren’t many of us that live in a place that is as big as we’d like or hoped for. Most of us have to work with what we got. Luckily, we at Downtown Apartment Company put together a guide on how to use elements of design to make your cramped space feel bigger and much more open.
For example, using a monochromatic color palette will make a room feel more airy and open, compared to a room with loads of contrast. Accenting your room with light fabric curtains and furniture with long, thin legs will also add to the impression that your place is bigger than it really is. Changing these design elements and using psychology to your advantage is a fundamental way to affect how people will feel in it.
The accompanying guide contains many more ideas on how to make your small place feel like a big space. Apply them to your home and it will feel much closer to the dream space you’ve always wanted.
