How To Make Your Home More Spacious This Spring

Mar 2, 2017

Winter continues to drag its heels but with the clocks set to go forward in just over three weeks, lighter and brighter days lie ahead.

Who knows what the spring season has in store for us in terms of the weather, but you can take advantage of extended daylight hours and utilise them to make your home feel more spacious.

Wondering how? Here are some ideas:

1. Clean your windows

A build-up of dirt and grime over the winter months is inevitable. Entice the sun into your home by giving your windows a thorough cleaning. The glass should be left sparkling so that it has a direct pathway into your living space.

2. Fit some mirrors

Cleverly placing some mirrors around the house can create the illusion of space. Large mirrors have the ability to make a small room somehow feel longer and wider as it reflects light back into the room.

3. Rearrange the furniture

Tweaking your furniture arrangement can have a dramatic impact on your living area. Moving a sofa to a different angle or transferring an armchair from one part of the room to another has the ability to completely open up space.

4. Tidy up

It is after all the season of the spring clean so tidy up the entire house and put any clutter away either by storing it in drawers, cupboards etc. or throwing it out. Even a polish of your work surfaces and mantelpiece can help the sun bounce off them.

5. Install a conservatory

The easiest way to generate space is by incorporating a conservatory into the building. There are many types of conservatory design, varying from large to small, and they’ll all provide invaluable living space that looks even more considerable when it comes into contact with the sun.
