People living in major cities often find themselves in circumstances where they run out of living space or feel like their house is too cramped.

Let's say we are talking about someone who's renting a penthouse in Maadi, Egypt. Since the place he is renting isn't getting any bigger, that person is likely to look for the most suitable ways to make it appear bigger and more spacious, ideally without having to break the piggy bank, accordingly, we've came up with a few tips which should help make that goal achievable.

1. Ensure that you don’t block the windows

Ensure that you don’t block the windows when making efforts to make your apartment look bigger. The windows are quite important for bringing in natural light as well as drawing our eyes upward. The furniture should be organized in such a way where windows are clearly highlighted.

2. Source furniture with a low profile

Sourcing furniture with a low profile can go a long way in making your apartment look more spacious. It is not advisable for one to use furniture that directly sits right on the ground. Your furniture should have long narrow and contoured legs. This will make your apartment space look much bigger than it actually is.

3. Move your furniture off the wall

Moving your couch and other furniture some inches from the wall will make your apartment look bigger.

4. Go for expandable furniture

It is possible to make a room look bigger by going for expandable furniture which can be organized and placed in certain ways according to the occasion.

5. Use reflective materials

For your small apartment to appear bigger, you should have a lot of reflective materials in it. For instance, a mirror is one thing that can easily create the illusion that your space is larger. You may also decide to go for chrome or even platinum furniture. They all contribute to making the space seem more expansive.

6. Declutter

Clutter is never a good thing to have in an apartment. If you feel the need to make your apartment look bigger and more spacious, decluttering it is very important. It doesn’t matter whether you are going to toss it, donate it, store it or give it to someone as a gift, the most important thing for you is to get rid of it.

7. Lighter/neutral colors

Darker colors make a small apartment look more crowded than they really are. You should try using lighter colors to make your space seem more open and natural. You can also try decorating and styling the space using a neutral palette.
