I assure you is that by doing these tips that we are going to see at the same time, you will make your room look bigger, obviously, visually. If you’re interested, keep up with me that we start with this list of steps and tips to make a room look bigger. We start
Purge the room
Throughout the months and years, we are adding almost without realizing more things to the room.
A new cushion, a few books on the furniture, a beautiful vase that has been given to you, some other photographs … And so we are adding and reloading all the space.
So, just as if it were a closet that you want to order, the first thing you should do is purge.
Remove everything you think is too much, empty the TV cabinet a bit, which does not look reloaded, do not saturate the cushion sofa. The coffee table and the dining table that do not have many ornaments on top, etc.
In this way, in a few hours, you will get your room to breathe and the space is not so crowded.
It may seem a bit trivial task to make the room look bigger, but at the time you do it, leave the room, go shopping, have a beer or go for a walk. When you re-enter, you will realize the great impact that the task of purging has just done.
I am not telling you to get to minimalism, but you want to, but it is common sense that a space that has element overload seems and is visually heavier, as well as that a room with just elements seems lighter. Lighter.
If you already have your living room like this, and you want to continue strengthening your space, then let’s move on to the following advice:
Lighten or remove the curtains
You see, curtains are a very important decorative element, but beyond their aesthetic use, they fulfill a very important function: they regulate the amount of light that enters the space.
Therefore, this advice is not a strict rule but rather, a flexible suggestion that you should adapt to your classroom.
The curtains have a great visual weight, and more if they are reloaded with large and opaque prints.
If you remove them, you will see that your room becomes deep and the space is larger. The visual difference is shocking.
I tell you the same as before. Remove the curtains and turn around. When you enter your room again, you will see what a big difference.
If you cannot or do not want to remove the curtains, because as I said before, you need them to have privacy and to regulate the natural light that enters, then bet on lighter ones.
Even if you want to go further, remove the curtains and put a blind, as we see in the room above these lines, which is a much finer aesthetically speaking element and you will also notice that your room looks bigger.
Naturally, if you remove the curtains, you will also notice that your living room is brighter, but that is another topic, that if you are interested, you can read in this article that I wrote recently where I tell you how to make a living room more luminous.
Let’s look at another tip to make the room look bigger:
Show or show the entire possible perimeter of the room
In the same way that the previous advice in some cases cannot be applied or not at all in some houses, I understand that this advice may not be carried out by everyone.
But it is so effective, and it takes so little time, that I have to put yes or yes on this list.
This is a proven fact: The more clean perimeter you see in your room, the bigger it will look.
That is, the larger the surface of walls and baseboard is free, the larger your room will look.
The feeling that a room, or any other space is small or ornate, comes in large measure that the eye cannot see the perimeter, usually because it is full of furniture.
So lighten your living room as much as possible, take the furniture to the center if you can, leaving the walls as free as possible. If you can not, separate the furniture about 5 centimeters from the walls so that the space does not seem so ornate.
Believe me, it works great. If the eye can perceive the perimeter of a site, it will seem wider.
Let’s keep going:
Hide the wires
This step or trick, works very well, since the cables, which we often have many and many of them in sight, form a visual disorder that makes our room seem more crowded and messy.

I have left this trick or advice to make the room bigger because it is the only one of all that requires an item.
As you can see, the rest of the steps to make your room look bigger are based on removing or changing what you already have.
But in this case, you will need a mirror. Or several.
If you put a mirror in front of the window, you will give the room a new dimension.
A non-physical dimension, but a visual one, which is what we want. You will make the room look deeper, wider or longer. In addition, more luminous. Sounds good, right?
All steps are effective. Now it is up to you what steps to take to make your room look bigger, clear and “clean.”
