Whether your room is larger or smaller, the wrong size furniture, décor, and accessories cause it to be a distraction to your peace rather than an enhancement. Rattling around in an oversized room with an undersized sofa and a chair or two makes one simple feel out of place. But cramming a small room with that oversized recliner and sofa doesn’t leave room for people at all.

Get more from your small space

Visually enlarge a small room by painting the trim, ceiling, and walls with similar but slightly darker hue or in lighter shades of the same color. Use the lightest shade on the ceiling, the darkest on trim and the medium tone on the walls. If the walls have architectural interest, enhance with an additional level of the same hue to give depth and definition. Keeping the color consistent throughout the room gives coherence to the look.

Scale the furniture to the room. In the smaller space, think low-armed side chairs and a narrow sofa. Or go for a grouping of chairs in a circle, mixing fully-upholstered with wood-trimmed seating to give interest. Remove bulky pieces that fill entire walls and replace them with smaller options. Rugs should fit under the furniture legs but not extend to the walls to pull the grouping into a unified ensemble.

Make furniture do double duty by utilizing a storage ottoman as a coffee table, or a low bookcase as a sofa table. For a cramped entryway, try a gathering of small mirrors to bring light into a dark space.

Go big or go home

In a larger space, you need statement pieces to ground the design. The use of a larger sectional, massive coffee table around which to gather, and an oversized reading chair transforms a large area into a cozy family room. Add side tables, sofa tables, bookshelves and other wood pieces that bring warmth and texture into the room.

A large mirror to draw the eye can fill a wall and bring interest to a windowless expanse and carry light into the room. Mirrors work great in large entryways as well by reflecting architectural details and light into large dark areas. Choose expansive artwork, a soaring vase, a contemporary sculpture to lend interest to your room and draw the eye into the room. Fill walls with larger-scale art or groupings to avoid them appearing empty. Add colorful cushions and throws to bring warmth and coziness to your home.

If your home is too small for your belongings and you crave a larger home, talk to your local real estate specialist to see what’s available to you.


As you go on the house hunt, you’re likely to attend many different open houses. After awhile you can get confused as to what you have seen and where you saw it. Each open house or home showing is only a short window of time. As a buyer, you’re trying to get the feel for a house. Being an observant home shopper can help you to avoid a lot of problems down the road. Check out some of the biggest red flags that you need to look out for when you attend an open house.


The Candles Are Burning Bright


You walk into an open house and see a lovely candle lit on the kitchen table. While it may make you feel all warm and fuzzy, it’s not always a good sign. Candles are a great way to mask odors. There could possibly be a musty odor coming from the sink, the basement, or another part of the house. This spells hidden damage and possible danger for you as a homebuyer. While the home inspection should pick up on things like this, you don’t necessarily want to get that far in the process. The art of masking odors could be a sign that the sellers are trying to hide something.


Be Your Own Inspector


As you walk through the home do you notice squeaky floor boards, cracks in the walls, cracks in the ceilings, or a drippy faucet? Maybe you see some patches on the walls or mirrors and paintings that seem out of place? These are all issues that could be signs of a greater problem. Keep in mind that no house is perfect, but you should do a little investigating on your own while walking through the house at showings.


The Home Doesn’t Appear Cared For


Curb appeal is one thing, but a home that looks unkept is a sign of a larger problem for you. Has the lawn been mowed? Is the fence in disrepair? How does the home appear from the outside at first glance? There are plenty of ways that you can fix up a home to make it your own once you buy it, but the question is just how much of a challenge are you up for? There is always a chance that you’ll have large maintenance costs when a home hasn’t been properly maintained by the previous owners.


Searching for homes and going to open houses can be fun. It can also be an educational experience to help you narrow down what you’re looking for and what you can handle as a homeowner.
