Design Tip Tuesday - Tips for Fooling the Eye and Making a Room Look Bigger - Part Three, Clutter

Small rooms more than others need to be free of clutter. Keep it to a minimum. Small accent pieces on a shelf tend to look like clutter. Larger pieces make a statement and in fact help to make a room appear larger. With things neatly arranged and out of sight, the space that is in view will feel orderly and open. A cluttered room equals a smaller room.

Don’t clutter walls with a lot of pictures. One large painting works better than a group of small paintings.

Keep the floor as clear as possible. This is one of the most important ways of maintaining a sense of spaciousness. By removing area rugs, floor space reads larger, creating a larger feeling room.

Clear up some space on surfaces, walls and floors and you'll end up with a space that feels much larger!

Happy Decorating!
