This week Erik & Randal have five simple ways to make a small space look larger. All of these tips can be easily done in one key and without a lot of money. If you've been thinking about selling or just getting to some old-fashioned Spring Cleaning done, you could easily knock out most of these tips in one weekend.



TRANSCRIPT:

Erik:

Welcome to Stay Focused, Focus Real Estate's weekly video series. I'm Erik Gould.

Randal:

I'm Randal Engelmann.

Erik:

And this week we'd like to talk about the Focus Five! 

Randal:

Five ways to make a space to look a little larger.

Erik:

Yeah, some quick tips on how to make your small space look larger.

Randal:

One you probably already know about but here's a different twist on it, making your ceiling contrast to the rest of the room. Perhaps you already know this. The room is one color and your ceiling is usually white you can also flip that making your ceiling a different focal point to go up and make your old walls really light. That's one way to make a space look larger.

Erik:

That's great. Another way is to color coordinate your knickknacks and accessories. Not too many colors to break the eye and make it look too busy. Also! Knickknacks: No more than two knickknacks smaller than a cantaloupe.

Randal:

What about a cantaloupe?

Erik:

No more than two knickknacks smaller than a cantaloupe. Otherwise, it looks cluttered.

Randal:

Interesting.

Erik:

Number three!

Randal:

Having a statement piece in the room.

Erik:

What do you mean 'a statement piece'?

Randal:

You know,  a really spectacular piece of artwork or a really interesting piece of furniture...

Erik:

 And speaking of fabrics and chairs...

Randal:

Or furniture in general...

Erik:

Having exposed legs on the furniture. Some naked legs on your furniture. So leave those legs exposed. Number five!

Randal:

Number five is leaving windows uncovered. It creates a little bit more space in a room. Makes it feel a little bit bigger.

Erik:

Yeah, so you can see out and people can see in and it makes it feel big.

Randal:

And if you want your room to look teeny tiny just do the absolute opposite of all of those things. The big takeaway is a larger rooms show better especially in smaller homes so it's always nice to make them look a little larger. If you need any advice on how to do that that this video did not provide, we offer services from Sarah Solomon from Moving Simply. She can help coordinate with you to set your stage for the right spots.

Erik:

Yeah.

Randal:
