6 Ways to Maximize Small Living Space | Wilmington NC Homes

Wilmington NC


You can’t stretch a foot to measure more than 12 inches, but you can make it look a yard wide, with a few simple tricks:Ruler

  • Lighting.
  • Forget window draperies. Place fluorescent lights behind valances, under cabinets, over work places. Forego floor lamps and mount wall lamps instead.

  • Color.
  • Keep to one, two or (at the most) three light colors that blend and flow from one room to another.

  • Carpeting.
  • Use one carpet color throughout the house.

  • Mirrors.
  • Double the size of a room and bring the outdoor window view inside with mirror walls. Mirror the lighting under kitchen cabinets.

  • Built-ins.
  • Wherever you can tuck a cabinet, shelf, or small table, you make awkward spots usable.

  • Furnishings.
  • Choose small-scale with simple lines furniture and place it against the walls, leaving plenty of open space.
