Make Small Spaces Look Bigger

May 1, 2017

Owners and renters of small homes and apartments want their homes to look as uncluttered and roomy as possible. Even the smallest living space looks more spacious and stylish when you install new curtain panels.

 

Hang Them High

Classic panel curtains make a room look more spacious when you mount the curtain rod close to the ceiling instead of at the window frame. Sleek, floor-length panels draw the eye upward along the entire length of the curtains, creating an illusion of height. Hang curtains about 4 inches above a window frame in rooms with ceiling moldings and up to 6 inches in rooms without moldings.

 

Go Vertical

Sheer, lightweight curtains with vertical stripes add height to a small space. Muted patterns or plaids in lightweight fabrics with bold vertical stripes or open-weave curtains with vertical designs woven into them add texture and airiness. Avoid heavily colored horizontal patterns or large flowered prints, which tend to dominate a room, creating a feeling of less space. Choose them in the same color or a slightly lighter shade than the walls to provide consistency. Heavy, dark-colored drapes crowd a room, making it look smaller.
