If you live in a small home or apartment, it can be difficult to make your living space feel open and airy. Syd and Shea McGee from “Dream Home Makeover” have unique tips and tricks to make your small space feel more open.
The couple suggests designating areas in a room, especially if you share the space with someone else, and a good way to do this is by using a rug to separate zones. The McGees recommend finding furniture with hidden storage to maximize your space; for example, a desk built into the kitchen gives you a workspace without needing an office.
The McGees focus on balance in order to make a room feel open, and they recommend avoiding bulky furniture as it can weigh down the room and take up a lot of space. To open up a room, get furniture with visible legs, and consider its height, shape, and material to ensure all pieces work well together.
