For those of you angling after a larger house because you think your current one isn't big enough, think again. The property market is tenuous at best at the moment, and there are plenty of tricks you can use to make your rooms seem much larger than they are. With a little bit of thought about the way you use light and colour in your home, you can make sure it is a haven of space and comfort for your whole family.
Make the most of natural light
In the fight to make your home seem larger, the sun is your greatest ally. Make the most of all the natural light you have available. Get rid of any heavy curtains and draperies and open up your windows. By letting the light stream in you will chase away the shadows, opening up the whole room into a bright space.
