Tips to Expand your Living Space

Expand your living space

Sometimes, renovating your home is a much faster, simpler and cost-effective option to make your space feel bigger than completely ripping out your entire home and rebuilding.

Simple tips and tricks can be used to actually take what you already have and make it larger and this can be simply done by being smarter with colour choices and storage solutions.

This is why many more homeowners are now following the fixer-upper trend by improving their spaces rather than spending money trying to find and create the perfect home. Here are our top tips:

Custom Shutters

Does your property get overtaken by a lot of uninvited car traffic noise? Or perhaps, do you feel like your curtains do not protect your privacy enough?

Shutters are unique, traditional and very much in demand amongst homeowners and landowners who want to add value to their home as well as aesthetically updating it and adding style to any room.

You’ll usually find that they are expertly crafted and well-designed by some of the world’s most skilled crafters, which offer a more natural look to your home.

Not only this, but they do wonders for making your living space feel larger than it actually is. This is because they can allow a lot of light into the room, as well as keeping out when you choose.

Custom blind and shutters are available in a wealth of colours and wood stains, which can be exactly matched to meet your precise requirements and are an extremely practical and viable option.

Benefits of custom blinds and shutters:

  • Cuts out noise pollution
  • Helps you save on energy bills
  • Works like double glazing
  • Keeps out light
  • Looks chic

Understand colour schemes

Something so simple as the colour of your walls can make a huge difference in how big or small your room feels. Darker colours tend to make the room feel smaller and boxed in. Whereas, lighter hues and accent walls do wonders for making your rooms feel larger.

So, when it comes to choosing the right colour scheme for your home, make sure you bear in mind how it will work in reality.

Dark purple maybe your favourite colour, but if you’re looking to open the room and make it feel more spacious then it a safer option to go for lighter hues.

Expert painters know all the little tips and tricks to turn a small, boxy space into a large, luxurious room. They will know how to do this with trim and your ceiling colour in contrast to your walls.

Plus, if you’re looking to add value to your home it is always best to trust a professional painter to do this for you. It will be a lot more aesthetically pleasing as well as professionally executed and finished.
