7 Design Mistakes That Make Your Home Feel Small

There are common mistakes people make when designing their home. Instead of magnifying the space they  somehow decorate it according to what they want without knowing the outcome of the whole interior. Rather than cramped, awkward, and unfabulous describing your home how about charming, cozy, and stunning. Here are some mistakes you need to avoid to keep your home from looking small.

If you live in a small home or have rooms in your house that don’t seem to have enough room, you are probably struggling with how to fit the things you want and need into them. However, if you try to fit too much into a small space it can feel really cramped and smaller than it actually is. Even if you carefully plan your furniture and how you arrange everything in your space, it can still come out looking small and crowded just by adding small things, like books or appliances.

Below are seven common design mistakes that make your space feel small. By doing the opposite of these, you will find new and creative ways to make your home feel cozy and have all the necessities, all without creating a crowded and cluttered space.

1. Too much stuff makes a room feel small.

People love to collect things and display them all around their home, but if you have a smaller space then this is the beginning of your problems. Small rooms are not meant to display many items, as it turns the already limited space into a cluttered mess. This kitchen, for example, features quite a number of glass bowls and vases that are on display above, and a number of items on the counters, which makes this space feel too cluttered. Clutter not only makes a space feel small but it can also give the illusion that a room is dirty, because there is just too much stuff.
Try keeping kitchen counters and cabinets free of appliances and things that aren’t used on a regular basis. Essentials such as a toaster, coffee maker, and perhaps a food processor, can stay but anything else should be put away. This will give the space a sleek and clean look without much effort at all.

2. Feng Shui is more than just a trend.

We’ve all heard about Feng Shuing a home to make it more conducive for better energy flow and many people dismiss this as a bunch of nonsense but there is some truth to it. Having a room with furniture that is organized can do wonders for making your space look and feel bigger and better. This doesn’t mean you need to go out and get a Feng Shui professional, but it does mean that you should put more thought into how your furniture is organized so that you can easily move from one space to another without any problems.
