8 Tips to Create an Open Interior in Construction

Open Floor Plan

Having a small room doesn’t mean that you still can’t make it look big. Here are eight tips on how to reconstruct your rooms in your home to look bigger.

Use Light Colors

Light colors have this capacity of making things look bigger than the way they are. Use light color on the walls to make the wall spaces appear bigger. Take the same shade up onto cornice and the ceiling to draw the eye up. Lighter floors, especially light wood or painted white, will also give a greater sense of space. Use them also on the ceiling which will make it look higher when it is looked at.


You should free up some spaces around your home. Ask yourself if you really need most of the household equipment around. Remove those that you are no longer using as to make your room look more spacious.

Use Art Paintings

You can create more space in your room using a piece of artifact. Hang an art or a painting at a distant wall in the room. This way, you will draw attention to the visual element and expand the perceived depth of the room.

Use Window Treatments

Use lowered windowsill heights, wall windows, French doors, or even single decorative windows in order to let in an as much natural light as possible and expand sightlines beyond the interior. This will expand the view of the room creating seeming scenery that the room is wide.

Apply Accessories

Decorate the room with a few carefully chosen accessories that are larger in scale, such as a big art print or a few large coffee table books, rather than lots of smaller pieces that will crowd the space and make it look cluttered.


Mirrors create illusion making where it is confined in to seem bigger. Use a big mirror on the walls that will bounce light and images around the room and make them appear spacious than they are.

Modify the Floor

The look of the floor of a room can be harnessed to make a room feel bigger. Smooth, cool surfaces of polished woods make a room appear bigger than wood furnishings.

Eliminate Curtains and Drapes

Curtains and drapes block the view of the outside from the inside. Boycotting the installation of curtains and drapes during window treatment will keep your home simple with a pseudo openness.

One of the things you have to do as a home owner is to ensure that your home looks wonderful at every point in time. With the above tips, you can always wow your visitors, as you make your living area an ambiance of sophistication.
