Tips for Making a Room Feel Larger

    (Provided by ABC Glass & Mirror, Inc. - Thursday, July 30, 2015)

Does your home include a small living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom? Here are a few tips for making this room feel larger and more open.

So if you are not ready to tear down walls or build an addition, try some of these easy tricks for making a compact space seem roomier than it is.


    •    Have a large wall mirror installed. Visually speaking, this will double the room’s size. It can further enhance the room’s atmosphere by reflecting light and brightening things up.


Wall Glass Mirrors 

    •    Opt for light wall colors, rather than dark tones that can make the room feel even smaller.

    •    Place your curtain rods well above the tops of the windows; this will create the effect of high ceilings.

    •    Extend cabinets all the way up to the ceiling.

    •    Paint the ceiling white as this will help the room seem “taller.”

    •    Hang a framed mirror opposite a window to create the effect of a second window.

    •    Add a window or skylight if feasible.

    •    Extend your bathroom’s shower enclosure to the ceiling.


Frameless Shower Doors


    •    Replace opaque surfaces with glass table tops – ie wood tables, shelves, and cabinet fronts.

    •    Select clear glass for applications such as shower doors, cabinet glass, and glass tabletops.

    •    Purchase window treatments that let in lots of light. When a small room is well lit, it feels less confining.

    •    Avoid clutter. Minimize furniture in the small room, keeping only the necessary pieces. Make sure these are comfortable and attractive.

    •    Give the room a greater sense of openness by replacing bulky bookcases with clear glass shelves hung on the wall.
