Cutting Visual Clutter: How to Make Your Room Feel Bigger

You don’t necessarily need to expand a room’s floor space to make it look and feel bigger. Natural lighting, combined with a few design tricks, can make any room feel more spacious. 

To help you get started on revamping your interior, the windows installation experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island share some tips in this post. 

Stick to a Consistent Color Scheme 

Remodelers recommend choosing one color and using different shades throughout the room. Avoid contrasting colors, as they break up space and adds to visual clutter, which can make a room feel more cramped and smaller than it actually is. 

Install Larger Windows with Wide Glass Panes 

Natural lighting can make a room feel more airy, not to mention brighten the mood inside. One way of maximizing indoor natural lighting is to install replacement windows with wide glass areas. To prevent too much heat from entering or leaking out of your home through window glass, contractors recommend choosing an energy-efficient window. 

If you’re looking for a window replacement, Renewal by Andersen offers a wide variety of energy-efficient glass options. Our most energy-efficient glass option is the High-Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, which is 70% and 49% more energy-efficient in summer and winter respectively as compared to a standard dual glass pane. 

Use Bigger Furniture 

Creating the illusion of a larger room is all about optics, so it’s important to optimize the layout of your room. It seems counterintuitive, but bigger furniture can help make a room feel bigger. Larger furniture pieces take up less visual space, reducing visual clutter, as opposed to scattered smaller furniture pieces that make the room look more cluttered.

"I was very impressed with Renewal by Andersen. They showed up in time and we received several follow up phone calls as the installation was being done as well as the sales representative stopping by to check in on the installation. The delivery/ installer was very professional. I would highly recommend Renewal By Andersen."
