Quick ways to make your apartment seem bigger

Sometimes having a huge apartment is just not in the budget, but that does not mean you have to feel stuffed in your smaller place. There are several easy tricks to make your place seem bigger and more spacious.

 Paint your walls a light color :   Using colors like white, sky blue, or light green can make a space seem more open and spacious. Darker colors do just the opposite and will have you feeling like a sardine in a can.

 Open the windows  :  The bright lights from the natural sunlight you let in will have a similar effect as using lighter color paints on the wall. Letting in sunlight will illuminate the rooms in your place and make it seem bigger and brighter.

Use vertical storage units instead of vertical ones :  Drawers, dressers, and shelves that go up and are taller, give the illusion of having more space than dressers that go sideways and are longer. They leave you with more floor space, which will come in handy.

 Rearrange furniture :   Apartments that are furnished come with the furniture arranged in a specific way, but don’t be afraid to move beds, tables, dressers, and sofas around so that the apartment flows better and gives you the illusion that the space is bigger than it really is.
