Some remodeling projects seem like a natural fit – add a stall onto your overcrowded garage, renovate the bathroom to complement the rest of your home’s more modern aesthetic, etc. However, with small spaces homeowners are often faced with the question of not whether or not they should remodel, but rather how to remodel. While we agree, small spaces can prove a bit more difficult, we are always up for a challenge. Check out these simple remodeling tips that can help your small space look larger! Include Columns and Built-Ins: Installing columns and built-ins can help to define and separate space within small rooms, giving the illusion of a larger overall area. In addition, thoughtfully designed pieces can serve double duty as storage or display space. Whitewash: The color white reflects light and enhances the sense of space. To fully leverage this visual trick, carry your white theme through into countertops, cabinets, and flooring. Keep the room from looking sterile by adding bright pops of color in both furniture and accents. If white is simply not your style, consider carrying color themes through your home from one room to the next. Maximize Natural Light: Not only does natural light brighten a room, it also visually opens it up and gives it character. If you have windows in your small room, use minimal window treatments and draw outside colors inside to help expand the look of the space. Step Down Room: If possible, create a step down room. Much like pitching the ceilings of a room, this technique provides longer site lines, extra presence, and added volume. Mirror, Mirror On The Wall: When remodeling your small room, consider where the room’s focal point will be and opt for a large and eye-catching mirror in the chosen area. The extra accent will add additional sparkle to your room and help it to appear bigger. Door Detail: When possible, remove standard doors, that will need to swing open and close and further monopolize space, with sliding or pocket doors to fully utilize available area. Make The Most Of Storage: Consider investing in custom cabinets to take advantage of every nook and cranny your small room provides.
