15 Clever Ways to Make Your Small House Look Bigger

When living in a tiny house, getting organized can be quite challenging. Fitting everything in without making the space feel cramped can seem impossible, but it’s not. There are some clever ways to make the most of a small space.

1.       Get rid of things you no longer need. Clutter makes your house look even tinier.

2.       Allow some natural light in. Well lit spaces feel more open and spacious.

3.       Bold, powerful and large wall art works wonders in making the room appear bigger than it actually is.

4.       Don’t fill the house with too much furniture.  Opt for a large sofa instead several small ones. Also, avoid oversized furniture with big arms. It makes your small house feel crowded. You can opt for multi-functional pieces like ottomans instead.

10.   Go for plain color or small print fabrics. They visually expand the space of the room.
