Home Staging Tips: How To Make A Small Room Look Bigger

Costa Mesa real estate company Torelli Realty offers some tips to make a small room look bigger.  These are tips that Torelli Realty provides when listing a home for sale. Why? Because it’s important to make rooms seem as large as possible when selling a home in Costa Mesa, just as it is throughout the US.

“How do I make a small room look bigger?” That’s one of the main questions we’re faced with from home sellers. Here’s a list of 5 quick & easy tricks that we use and so do other professionals.

Living room

  1. Paint the walls a light color. Inman News, one of the nation’s top sources of real estate news states that beiges and neutral colors create a light and airy atmosphere, which translates into a larger feeling space. Rooms that are painted a dark color feel smaller.
  2. Use a lighter color on the trim, borders and ceilings than the walls. Why? It helps to make the color on the walls feel less confining. It actually has the effect of lengthening the room.
  3. Make sure furniture is to scale. Hubpages.com points out a fact that is often overlooked. If the furniture is too big for the room, the room will seem cramped.
  4. Hang a mirror. Handyamerican.com does a good job of explaining how mirrors can give the appearance of expanding a room. The best mirror placement is in an area that reflects light or scenery. It gives your eye more space to wander.
  5. Pick appropriate lighting. In real estate nearly 100% of buyers prefer natural light so make sure to play up the natural light in the home. Freshome suggests choosing window treatments that can be tied back to help make the outdoors feel like an extension of the room. Pick lighting fixtures that suit the scale of the room and provide adequate light to add depth and a focal point.

Homes for sale in Costa Mesa by Torelli Realty are counseled to use these tricks in rooms to make them feel larger. It’s amazing what just a few small staging techniques can do to seemingly change the size of a room.

About Torelli Realty: Torelli Realty is proud to offer home improvement and home staging tips to help your home’s value throughout Costa Mesa and in Mesa Verde. The company has been servicing Costa Mesa, CA almost exclusively for over 25 years and knows Costa Mesa real estate.

Egg-Citement Entertains Costa Mesa Residents

This past weekend Costa Mesa residents enjoyed Egg-Citement at Tanager Park in the Mesa Verde section of Costa Mesa.  Torelli Realty has hosted Egg-Citement for over 15 years and each year we get more and more people.  This year we had the largest crowd ever – over 500 children participated in the Easter egg hunt and families had a chance to enjoy the bounce house, petting zoo, pony rides, and coloring contest.  The Estancia Booster Club was there helping the Estancia High School Cheer Squad as they cheered and sold concessions to raise money for their team.  Plus the Easter Bunny posed for photos with the happy children.  It was a fantastic morning!

Every year Torelli Realty brings in attractions for the crowd and all the money raised at the event goes right back to the local schools.  This year the Estancia Cheer Team made over $500 for their squad and an extra $200 was raised for the schools through the pony rides and petting zoo.

We’re proud to announce the winners of the contests from the event:

Coloring contest winner: Bridget Schoenberger

Thanks to everyone who came to the event and all the contributors.  We know that Costa Mesa looks forward to Egg-Citement as part of their Easter celebration and we look forward to bringing it back to the community next year.  Next up we have the Mesa Verde Garage Sale on May 15.  Later this year we’ll have more events including The Pumpkin Patch and Snow Hill.  Feel free to check back for more events and news.
