Ways to Make a Small Room Look Bigger

Thursday, March 08, 2018
Looking for creative ways to make your small room look bigger without having to break down walls? Tile Africa Bloemfontein’s Design Advisor, Carike Griessel, is here to help with a few tips to give your small room a size makeover, without having to swing a sledgehammer.




Tip #1 – Go Big or Go Home

Choosing the right tiles requires careful consideration, as making the wrong decision can leave your space feeling cramped. Large format tiles create the illusion of more floor space. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of grout lines giving a more expansive appearance to the floor allowing for a naturally larger looking room. Choosing a grout color that closely matches the tile also indeed helps. Large format cement-look tiles are a great option.

Tip #2 - Choose your Colour Wisely


The right colour combination can make or break a room, and light colours can open up a space. Beige, white and cream colours are the ideal choices to make a room feel bigger, while dark shades are more restricting, adding to a feeling of claustrophobia. You also have the option of breaking up the design with an elegant mosaic, a feature that will make the space feel livelier.

Tip #3 – Mirrors make all the Difference


There is more you can do to add to the illusion of space in a room than just reworking the size and colour of your tiles. Adding reflective accents and fixtures to a room can add to the sense of space when done right, and as such, you may want to consider adding a well-positioned mirror to the revamp.




There is no set formula for making a small room look bigger, but following the guidelines described above will give you a decided advantage. Remember to keep it light and choose large tiles that will allow for minimum grouting, to really get the most out of your small space.
