Even if your home is tight on space, there are many simple, easy things you can do to have buyers feel the interior is bigger.

Get rid of most of the stuff. Sellers, box everything you don’t need daily, and anything smaller than a football. Clean off countertops, go through cupboards and built-ins, remove knick-knacks. Smaller spaces favor minimalist designs. Leaving just a bare minimum of stuff will open up a room, creating the feeling of more space.

Take down heavy drapes and window coverings. Sellers, leave the windows bare or hang sheer linen curtains. The house will immediately feel brighter and cheerier—and you’ll extend the view to the outdoors, which also makes the space feel bigger.

Eliminate rugs. Rugs break up the flow of the flooring, making the space feel smaller. So, limit rugs to just one or two main areas, such as under the dining table. But make sure the rugs aren’t tiny—small rugs make a space feel compressed.

Paint rooms the same color. Sellers, are you willing to repaint? (always a good idea) do all rooms the same, neutral color. This prevents the space from feeling choppy, giving it a continuous feel. For the same reason, try to have furniture and accessories that use similar colors, rather than contrasting ones.

Eliminate prints. Remove furniture and accessories with patterned fabrics, especially those with wild, colorful designs. They can make buyers claustrophobic. Introduce solids whose colors are close to those already in the room.

Remove artwork. Walls covered in artwork can also feel cluttered. Blank wall space lets a room breathe.

Add mirrors. Mirrors brighten rooms by reflecting natural light and make small spaces look much bigger. Place a mirror next to, or directly across from, a window and the visitor will think there’s more depth to your home. Large mirrors are heavy, so you should get professional advice on how to hang them.

Use glass and metal furnishings. These reflect light and feel airy. sellers put dark wooden furniture in storage until their house sells.

Add light. Lots of it. Sellers put the highest possible wattage bulbs in all the lights in the home. Daylight tone bulbs give a natural light that makes small spaces seem larger.

Empty the corners. Take all furniture out of the corners of rooms. Leaving corners open extends the buyer’s view. The more open space you see, the larger the room feels.
