Welcome to part two of our four part series on how to make a room/office space feel bigger



When choosing a floor covering for your small room it is suggested that you consider using a light colour, such as light oak or a light coloured carpet. If you are using hardwood then you should select wider planks as they will have fewer joints, thereby making the space look wider and this helps to open up the room. Laying the boards parallel to the longest wall in the room can also create the illusion of more space. Laying any flooring diagonally will help to open up the room by making it appear bigger and wider than it actually is.

Continuing the same type or even colour of flooring into adjoining rooms with also create a feeling of more space.

Some interior designers say that dark wooden flooring can also be successful. Try placing some dark material on the floor and see how it looks.
