When it comes to apartments, townhouses and duplexes, space can be a problem. With smaller land sizes and less internal space, it’s important that you decorate and furbish your home in a way that makes it look and feel bigger. If you need inspiration, then check out these tips from our expert glass suppliers.
Install glass bi-fold doors
One of the most popular home renovation techniques for small homes, glass bi-fold doors save space and create more functional spaces. With large glass panels, these doors will improve your light quality and provide uninterrupted views. Glass bi-fold doors are particularly effective when adjoining indoor and outdoor areas, as they create an open plan look and increase your functional space.
It’s a well-known fact that mirrors can trick the eye into making a space look and feel bigger. As a general rule, the larger a mirrored surface, the bigger a room will feel. Add large mirrors to walls (especially those facing windows) to create the illusion of more space. In bedrooms, install mirror fronted wardrobe doors. Both space saving and modern looking, these wardrobe doors reflect light and provide uninterrupted surface which will make your bedroom look far larger.
Decorate with light coloured furniture
Dark furniture has a very heavy visual weight and will close in the room. By choosing light colours and soft hues (such as white or beige) you can expand the look of your space by appearing to push back the walls. Glass topped tables and coffee tables are also a great way to increase your visible light and open up a space.
