Moving in to a granny flat does not mean you need to compromise on the feeling of space and luxury.

Here are some easy ways to help a small room or compact house feel more spacious:

 

CHOOSE ONE TYPE OF FLOORING

To improve flow and create the feeling of large open space, choose one type of flooring.  The wider the floorboard or larger the tile, the more expansive the floor will look.

LIGHT COLOR SCHEMES

Pale shades will help bounce natural light around the room. Painting your skirtings and door frames slightly lighter than the walls will also make the surfaces visually recede.

USE CURTAINS FOR HEIGHT

Hang your window treatments high, from the ceiling if possible, and let them fall all the way to the floor.  This automatically draws the eye up and creates the illusion of height.  Selecting a fabric colour similar to the walls will also give you a seamless look.

MIRRORS

One of the best tricks in the book, mirrors are an obvious choice when it comes to creating the illusion of space.  They reflect natural light and visually expand spaces.

SLIDING DOORS

Hinged doors that need to swing open and closed can take up valuable space in small areas.  Consider opting for sliding doors for a more functional space.

PETITE FURNITURE

Rid yourself of over sized furniture and clunky pieces. Ditch the king size bed and opt for some space saving furniture.  This might include a sofa with legs to elevate it off the floor, a round dining table and low backed chairs that don’t block a view.
