Invest in good lighting

Small spaces can tend to feel dark and gloomy, especially if the room has small or not many windows. If this is the case, then investing plenty of lighting sources elsewhere will help to make up for the lack of natural lighting. You can add a striking feature by adding lighting fixtures to your high ceilings or a floor lamp, to make your space feel bright and cosy adding a nice table lamp will do the trick.

Include mirrors

Including mirrors is another excellent way to add more light, if you’re lacking that natural lighting. Mirrors are a great way to help a space feel bigger, mirrors are used to give the illusion that there is more space in a room than there actually is. You could add a great big mirror or add a few different shaped ones to create a feature wall, they’ll help to reflect light round the room.

Choose the right paint colours

Choosing the right paint colour is crucial to making a room feel more spacious, however you also need to make sure you’re sticking to the right colour pallet. Choosing a nice bright white colour like the Victory Colours Victory White No. 2, which is a pure white paint, can help a space feel light and airy.

On the other hand a darker colour, which people find daunting, will help you embrace the size of the room. With a small space you have to make sure that everything belongs together from the paint colours, to the colour of your decor, this will make sure the space doesn’t become cluttered with different colours.


Buying a big rug for your small space is something worth spending the money on, the bigger the better. If you choose to include a small rug this will make the space feel even smaller than before. Choosing a rug that covers the whole floor, that your furniture will be able to sit on top of, will work wonders for your room.

Multipurpose furnishings

Finding furnishings and items that look good but can also be used as storage is key to creating a spacious room with stunning furniture. Keeping a small space clean and not cluttered can be done by buying things such as a bed with built-in drawers underneath, ottomans and shelving units. You can buy furnishings that look good to the eye, yet also add more storage space at the same time.

Clear the floor

When you have a small room, it’s fine to include the essentials, but the room will not work if there is not enough space to walk in it. To avoid having too much on your floor, try floating pieces such as shelves and other floating furniture. Opting for wall lights or bedside lamps rather than floor lamps can help tackle this issue, along with storing things where they cannot be seen.


It’s the simple things that can really make a big difference in making your space feel spacious. Hopefully now you’ll have a good idea of what you could add or take away from your small space, to help make it feel and look bigger and feel bigger.
