Selling Your House? 3 Tips to Make Small Rooms Look Larger January 10, 2019

Selling Your House? 3 Tips to Make Small Rooms Look Larger, Red Wing, Minnesota

When you are selling your house, creating an open, airy space is crucial for attracting attention from prospective buyers. However, since every home is different, you might have areas of your house that are smaller than others. Here are three tips to make the smaller rooms in your house appear larger, so you can make your home stand out. 

The Top Ways to Make Rooms Feel Larger

1. Remove Extra Clutter 

selling your houseExtra clutter sitting around a room can take up a great deal of valuable floor space, so focus on going through the smaller rooms of your house to remove extra items. Pack up books, decorations, and even furniture accessories to make your space easier to get around in. Removing extra clutter also makes it easier for buyers to see the dimensions of the room since clothing, pictures, and plants won’t be in the way. 

2. Downsize Furniture

If you have larger furniture, like queen-sized beds or large armchairs in the room, consider swapping them out with smaller furniture pieces before selling your house. For instance, removing a side chair and using a twin-sized bed instead could open up the space. If you are having trouble finding smaller furniture items, shop at places that specialize in furniture for apartments, condos, or dorms. 

3. Use Light Colors

Since light colors reflect light, they tend to open up spaces. In addition to painting the walls a softer color, consider using neutral bedding and decor to brighten up the room. To make the colors shine, add plenty of light to the space by turning on lamps.
