20 Organization ideas How to Make Small Room look Bigger

Small rooms and living with a minimalistic approach are important these days, because with our growing population, we need to make the most out of what we’ve got. This video is going to check out 20 unusual and creative ways you can go about making small rooms look much larger! Of course, they won’t physically be any bigger; but it’s the experience within the room that you have, that truly counts. 1. Paint (or use wallpaper) on the ceiling to make the room appear much taller! When you do this, there is a plethora of routes to be taken. You can select the color you would prefer on a personal level, which is a lot more customizable than most options. Anything that can draw the human eye towards the ceiling of your room, will help it appear bigger. If you’ve always pondered how to make the most out of such a tiny space, these tips will help immensely. 2. Use lighter colors on both your walls and floors. Darker colors will make it seem as if the room is closing in on you (or in some cases, comfortably cozy!), whereas lighter colors will make things appear more open. They reflect light and allow the room to have an airy sense about it, which is wonderful for making it seem larger. 3. DON’T put furniture up against walls. When you put your furniture up against a wall, it will make everything feel like it’s stuck together. In order to combat this, you must push your furniture away from the walls. creating a sense of space (some would even consider it an illusion of sorts!). Your furniture deserves better than that, anyways; you probably paid a pretty penny for it. Unless you had a customized console table, of course! 4. Hidden storage Hidden storage compartments are going to be your best friend, as they allow you to keep things in place without the requirement of too many furniture items. It’s minimalism at its finest! You can find hidden storage compartments of all kinds on the internet, and you could even turn it into a DIY project; creating storage space under your bed or couch has never been this fun. If you spot an item at a furniture store that handles more than one process, it’s probably going to be beneficial for your small space. 5. Shelves near the ceiling Like we talked about before, drawing the eye upwards is an important part of this process. When you’ve got various accessories located higher up on the wall (near the ceiling), people are going to take notice; the most obvious ones to implement would be shelves. Any sort of shelf is not only useful for the storage of books, and many other trinkets; but it’s great for making the room appear a bit larger. Even the smallest rooms in the world can seem comfortably sized with a few shelves near the ceiling. In most cases, you can just build them yourself! 6. “The Cantaloupe Rule”. You may have heard of this before, which is good; this rule is when all of the accessories within your small room, need to be larger than a cantaloupe. If you have an abundance of trinkets and other things (like vases or anything of that nature) that are small, it’s going to make the room feel crowded with fewer pieces at a larger scale, the room will open up and allow people to breathe a little better. You can buy bigger vases just about anywhere, but some will tickle your fancy more than others. 7. Striped Floors? It might seem a bit odd to some, but as pinstripe pants make your legs look a bit longer, pinstripe flooring will allow your rooms or home to look a bit bigger as well. Striped floors may not be practical to some, but there are people out there that will absolutely love this look; this is a recommendation that comes from Kelly Edwards, a host on the Style Network (from the show “Tacky House”). 8. Go with the unexpected arrangement Furniture arrangements can be a little boring at times, but it’s up to you to spice things up. When you use a generic arrangement, it isn’t going to do anything for the room; you have to take some chances. Break the rules! If you feel like putting a “Lazyboy” armchair in the middle of the room, so be it; just make sure that everything comes together in a reasonable manner. 9. Hide accent pieces away until you need them for guests If guests aren’t around and you have several accent pieces that take up a decent amount of space, it’s probably better off for you to keep them stored away until guests arrive. You’ll need more surfaces to host dinner parties on when the guests come over, but for regular living, there’s no need to crowd your living space in that sense. It will give you a better to everyday living. 10. Avoid heavy materials. The absorption of light is a big issue with a smaller room. When you have a lack of light, it’s going to seem that much smaller; which is why you need to avoid heavy materials. These materials will suck up most of the light, leaving you with very little to work with! 11. Match your walls with your curtains. Matching is a common thing to be seen, especially when it comes to interior design. When you match your curtains and walls, it will seem as if the entire room flows into one being; there’s no separation, making it come off as being much larger than it usually would 12. Keep your windows clean. Clean windows will allow more light into the room, but it will also just make the setting a much more sensible one. Dirty windows can distract the eye quite a bit, and you need to make sure the glass is clean on both sides. I would suggest using a spray bottle with water or vinegar, and some old newspaper. 13. Monochromatic color schemes. When you go with the monochromatic look, which is when you pick one color, and decide to work with that one color alone, or maybe a few shades higher/lower, it adds continuity to your rooms. Everything comes together, but it doesn’t seem cluttered by any means; All of your accessories, furniture and anything else can be based off
of your first color. 14. Keep your floor clean. This would fall under the same category as the window aspect, Because keeping your floor clean will allow guests to look at it with ease. If you’ve done all of that hard work to make your floor apparent in the room, why not keep it clean as well? 15. Remove clutter. If there is any sort of clutter in your room, make sure you dispose of it quickly (and properly). Clutter is the #1 problem in small rooms, as it makes them appear even more petite. Keep them clean and you’ll notice a big difference. 16. Your paint should be from dark to light, and from low to high. When your lighter colours are at the top of the room, it’s almost like rising to the heavens. A baby blue base that consistently fades into white not only looks amazing, but it will make the room appear larger as a result. 17. Creative corners. The corners of your room are a place to get creative, as this is where you need to draw the eyes of your guest. Using pieces of furniture (like an armchair) or even just a bookshelf could do the trick. Don’t just go about hanging tons of paintings around. It makes the wall feel cramped up! It’s better to hang them near the corners. 18. Properly sized furniture If your furniture isn’t of the proper size, how can you expect to make a good impression? Using large couches and armchairs within a small room is a problem, because it doesn’t mesh well with the setting. Figure out the proper sizing for your furniture needs, and then go from there. 19. Reflect as much light as possible. In smaller rooms, you can make use of mirrors and shimmering fabrics to reflect more light around the room. Light has a tendency to make things seem larger than they are, especially when it comes to tiny rooms. There are many different accessories to be considered that shimmer and reflect light, so it’s a great addition to be made. And finally,
20 Personalize it to your liking With everything we’ve talked about today, the job isn’t handled correctly unless you’ve personalized the space to your liking. The only individual you should be worried about pleasing is yourself, regardless of how many guests are going to be coming over
throughout the year. If you’re happy with the results, so be it! That’s it,

  6. I was expecting the film footage provided to feature small rooms with the suggestions… not large houses with huge rooms and picturesque windows. Maybe feature the tips and tricks provided in actual small spaces?

  7. The room is already small. So where do I walk with all the furniture away from the walls? That makes more since in a large room.

  8. use shower curtain with pockets for storage of bathroom items. hangs behind regular shower curtain. much better than bins.

  9. Seriously, if I didn't have my furniture up against walls, there would be no room to navigate in my small living room!

  11. number 19. bathroom makeover. the girl had a potty mouth, cursing every other word. I won't subscribe because you have set no boundaries on guests on your site. sad!

  12. I'm sorry but the towels on the hooks are not very hygienic. Wet towels should be spread out to air dry in order to get rid of mold and fungus etc

  13. the tips may be good – the video is not. if you want to show how to make small rooms look bigger the first rule is: show SMALL rooms! dammit.

  14. We HAVE to place the couch (love seat) against the window. And it's great for watching the goings on. You do whatcha' gotta do. Love your videos.

  15. Me: clicks on video that would possibly have small room ideas/organizing "this might help"

    Video: all rooms are at least 20×20

  16. Clutter makes the world go round. Clutteris the sign that a human inhabits that space. Clutter is in the eye of the beholder.

  17. I have my furniture against the wall. Where else do i put them. On the ceiling? Thatยดs such a weird idea. I dont have the space to put something in between and furniture should be against the wall.

  18. I liked the video however I could not relate the pictures to the voice. The pictures didn't help explain what was being said. Before and after using the principles would have been useful.

  19. I love, love, LOVE this video! Straight to the point, good graphics, and time stamps for each number in the description. Excellent job!

  20. Srsly.. if you already have a small room how the heck are you going to get your (ex.) Bed, night stand , or dresser away from the wall?!

  21. this video..
    my room is a pastel blue, and looks WAY bigger than it is, and this video says blue does the opposite??
    here's a tip. small rooms should have a window facing east or west so the sun can hit it dead on (almost) get light curtains, and try to keep them open. the light is natural and makes the room feel better, and look bigger. (when i say should, i mean like on opinion way, bc idk)

  22. When I saw the cantaloupe rule: oh no I have to throw my oil diffuser, cute little dream quote, and my Polaroid camera away๐Ÿ˜‚

  23. This video canโ€™t help a lot of people considering lots of people have popcorn ceilings so canโ€™t just paint over that and you canโ€™t really move your furniture away from the walls if you have a small room then it would just make a smaller walking space and some things in this video is just common sense
