The size of your home dramatically affects the value, but square footage isn't the only space that counts. Visual space or how large a home feels also counts. The key is to make each room in your house feel larger. Use these helpful tips:

Tips to Visually Increase Your Home's Square Footage

  • Replace heavy closed draperies with vertical blinds or shutters to let light in a sunny room feels larger and more open.
  • Lay floors on diagonal. This fools the eye into seeing the floor pattern from a different perspective, creating more visual interest.
  • Choose floor tiles larger than the standard 12" size to increase the appearance of more square footage.
  • Maintain consistency in adjacent spaces. Join adjacent spaces with the same type of floor material. This will give the illusion of having more space. If you need to change floor materials, stay within the same color family.
  • Add a single large mirror to a room to visually double the space.
  • Clear the clutter. Add an attractive shelving unit to underused space and store your clutter out of sight.

You may not be able to physically increase the size of a small room, but you can easily fool the eye with these tips to visually increase your home's square footage.
