Dorm Dilemma: Making a Small Room Look Bigger

“My dorm room is so spacious, I just don’t know what to do with it,” said no one ever. If you’re suffering from a serious lack of space, there’s no need to worry. There are tons of easy ways to make your small room look much bigger without making any crazy alterations. Keep reading for our top four tricks.

Tip #1: Let the [natural] light in. Pull back the curtains and the outside light will connect the indoors with outdoors. This makes the space appear larger because the room is no longer limited.

Tip #2: Clean up the clutter. Few things make a small room feel tinier than having clutter strewn all over. Getting organized will make your room feel bigger and make you feel better.

Tip #3: Make furniture into a 2-for-1. Whether it’s an ottoman that doubles as a storage space or a set of drawers that’s also an end table, it will save you plenty of space and open up the room.

Tip #4: Add some mirrors. Mirrors reflect light which will give your room depth (or the illusion of depth) as well as make it appear larger. Try stacking them in the creative manner we found on Pinterest (to the right).
