6 Ways to Make your Living Room Look Bigger

With spaces running out in cities, homes are getting smaller. However, that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t look comfortable and inviting. With some careful planning and hacks, you can make your living room appear much larger than it actually is. Here are some interesting tips to start with:


Going with light-colored walls creates the illusion of space. Any light shade of cream, blue or pink does the job of making your room appear larger than it actually is. And when it comes to furniture, maintain a limited color palette so your living room doesn’t appear cluttered.

Go Minimalistic

Limiting the number of furniture or accessories ensures that there is more floor space to move around in. Keep all large pieces of furniture closer to the wall to free up more space in the center of the room and create an illusion of spaciousness.


The main piece of furniture in your living room is the sofa. Choose a set that is proportionate to the size of your living room. An overstuffed cushy sofa looks luxurious, but can look like a space-hogger. Go with a low-armed, low-backed slimmer version to fit in with the size of your living room. Furnishings such as coffee tables, side tables or sofas with their legs exposed create an illusion of continuing floor space.


Natural lighting creates an illusion that the room is larger than it actually is. Stick to light-colored window treatments to encourage more sunlight to diffuse in. And when it comes to electric lighting, use multiple sources of lights so that there are no dark corners in the room. A mirror can also be placed strategically opposite a window or light source to further brighten and open up the space.


Tall drapes dropping from the ceiling add an illusion of height to your room. Recreate the luxury of French windows by draping from high up, preferably in light, sheer colors.


Take your art display vertically by adding a large statement piece on a dominant wall. Hanging bookshelves or large, decorative mirrors also do the trick of creating a focal point and adding depth to the room.
