Whether we live in an urban high-rise, a coastal cottage, a modern farmhouse or a city suburb, there are certain rooms in our homes that may make us feel cramped and confined. Small spaces in particular can make us uncomfortable, especially if the room is dark.
There have been times in my life while living in metropolitan areas that I craved a quiet, peaceful space. While in design school, I lived in an apartment in downtown Chicago. I loved my location but couldn't afford to remodel, and I wasn't interested in making a move. I learned through trial and error, and by applying the principles of design, that there were things I could do that would open and expand my interiors and not deplete my bank account.
Regardless of the size of your living quarters, there are things you can do to make the space feel open and airy.
As you discover ways to work these changes into small spaces, your rooms will begin to feel more open. And I think you'll also find them to be more welcoming and comfortable.
