Learn how to create more space and style in smaller rooms throughout your home. If you’re looking for space definition, you’ve come to the right place. Even the smallest rooms in your home can hold the greatest potential! A smaller space means you must carefully plan to fit your budget. Use our expert advice for these brilliant space saving solutions.
CHOOSE LIGHT PAINT. Neutral paint colors make all the difference when it comes to creating an illusion of space. If darker colors fit into your decorating plans, try painting a single accent wall to prevent shrinking spaces.
RE-ARRANGE FURNITURE. Get creative when positioning furniture! Use shorter walls to perfectly center beds or dressers for that warm, cozy vibe.
MIX IT UP. Spice it up by decorating bedding, wall décor, and pillows in super fun textures. A mix of funky patterns paired with a simple print creates the right blend of balance without overcrowding your bedroom.
USE BRIGHT LIGHTING. As you may already know, dark spaces make a room appear smaller. Investing in good lighting options will open up a room and go a long ways in making the space feel bigger and brighter.
– If you can organize your kitchen, you can organize your life. — Louis Parrish
INSTALL SHELVING. Wrap-around shelving is a brilliant fix to maximize storage space. When it comes to a lack of counter space, good shelving can provide all the storage you need to stay organized.
REFINISH COUNTERTOPS. Countertops are one of the first things you see when you enter a kitchen. Be mindful of outdated or damaged surfaces. Refinish countertops for a beautiful, new look that will draw attention to the beauty of the kitchen versus this size. The biggest advantage of countertop refinishing is a savings of 50% or more over the cost of replacement so you can achieve a high-end look without the high-end cost.
USE AN ISLAND BAR INSTEAD OF A KITCHEN TABLE: Island and bar top tables fit perfectly into a smaller kitchen, adding extra needed space. Take a look at some neat kitchen island ideas right here.
KEEP THE LIGHTS ON: We know dark colors tend to be a popular choice for kitchen walls. To keep your kitchen from looking smaller, install under-cabinet lights. Regardless of color, bright lighting is the trick to creating the ultimate illusion of space.
HANG TOWEL RACKS IN RIGHT PLACE. A clever trick to save space is to hang towel racks above the bathtub. An easy-to-reach spot that utilizes space correctly, so you can have more wall space to decorate.
GO FOR THE BIGGEST MIRROR. When choosing what type of mirror style you want, select the larger option to create more space. The larger the mirror, the greater reflection of light will illuminate to make your bathroom appear larger.
FIND THE BEST STORAGE. Use tall cabinets with multiple drawers for storing towels, toiletries and other accessories. Taller pieces draw the eye upward into often unused space. Eliminate large, bulky and unwanted furniture pieces and clutter.
REFINISH WITH NATURAL ACCENTS®. Brighten up your bathroom countertops with Natural Accents from Miracle Method, creating a beautiful transformation with a stone-like finish for vanities, countertops, showers, fiberglass shower units, and tile surrounds. A light, bright new color can transform your space.
MAKE SENSE OF YOUR COFFEE TABLES: Look for long skinny coffee tables or mirrored edged end tables that offer extra surface space for table lamps, picture frames, and decorative accents.
COLOR YOUR CEILING. Visually expand your square footage by painting the ceiling a darker shade than the color of your walls. A simple trick to create more space.
CREATE OPEN SPACE. Find furniture that fits the style and design of the room without over doing it. It may work better to use a single large sitting sofa than two smaller ones that take up more space. Check out design ideas on Pinterest. Get inspiration on what might work for your space.
LET YOUR CURTAINS HANG HIGH. Add useful space with curtains that fall to the floor. This will make the room and ceilings appear much taller.

Any repairs you’ve been putting off will most likely stick out to potential home buyers. Even ones that are not so obvious may end up showing up during the inspection which may lead to a delayed close as well as create doubt in the buyers’ mind that the home has been properly maintained. Take the time prior to listing to ensure you’ve made necessary repairs. Check out this Article on Angie’s List for what is covered in an inspection report.
Always do a deep cleaning before placing your home on the market. Create a presentable image to illustrate a well-cared for home. The cheapest way to elevate appearance is to wash windows, dust furniture and wax floors for that extra sparkle. Mostly importantly, create a spacious view by removing excessive clutter. If you have a difficult time keeping your home tidy during the showing process, consider finding and hiring a professional cleaner from Care.com to help ensure it is always show ready.

An appealing entrance sets the tone for the rest of the viewing. Freshening up your entrance easily welcomes visitors into your home. Consider inexpensive renovation tips like painting your old door, installing new house numbers, or adding a decorative wreath. It’s all about making that first impression as potential buyers walk through the doorway of their potential new home for the first time.
Neutral based tones accented by lighter color choices are far more appealing and amplify space to make it appear larger. Repaint any rooms with bright distracting colors. Softening wall colors allows potential buyers to easily visualize your living space as their own. A change in color makes all the difference!

Bathing Independence – Affordable bathing safety solutions that prevent slip and fall accidents
Replacing your bathtub with a walk-in tub can be expensive, with costs ranging anywhere from $3,000 to $15,000. If you are planning to completely remodel your bathroom, consider updating your existing bathroom with these affordable safety bathing tips. Whether for yourself or a loved one, safety doesn’t have to cost an arm and leg. Her are a few affordable, safety solutions that will make bathing more enjoyable again!
Slip Resistant Surfaces
Bathtub surfaces are extremely slippery and dangerous for those with limited mobility. To reduce the risk of a slip and fall accident, consider installing a bonded slip resistant surface in just one hour to your bathtub or shower pan. Unlike regular bathmats that quickly collect mold and mildew, a slip resistant surface is more sanitary.
Make Items Accessible
Prevent accidents from happening by placing items like toiletries or towels in easy to reach locations. Difficult to reach items can easily result in injury if seniors struggle to over-extend their reach. Use baskets, towel racks, or shelves to place bathroom items in a safe, accessible location.
Use Grab Bars
To effectively help seniors safely move around the bathroom, install securely mounted grab bars to shower walls. To ensure proper placement and installation, use a professional service or contractor like Miracle Method. Contractors should use and be familiar with ADA placement guidelines for grab bar installation. A secure mount in easy-to-reach places provides immediate bathing assistance. Eliminate the risk of a serious accident while restoring your confidence within your very own home.
Install the Easy Step®
A remodeling solution is expensive, time consuming and difficult in limited space areas. However, you can reduce the danger from stepping over high sides of a bathtub with a bathtub-to-shower conversion designed by Miracle Method. The Easy Step® conversion creates a 9” deep x 24” wide step, so you can confidently enter and exit the bathtub more safely. An affordable bathing solution doesn’t have to involve extensive renovation. Choosing a company like Miracle Method will save you time and money.
Standing for long periods of time can be extremely difficult for seniors, not to mention an uncomfortable, added risk of falling. To ensure loved ones have the support they need during bathing, simply place a secure bench or chair in the shower. Staying seated during bathing increases stability and balance so you can enjoy bathing again.
Use a Hand-Held Shower Head
One of the most essential bathing safety accessories is a removable shower nozzle, perfect to use while seated. The functionality ranges from adjustable water pressure to an extended reach, allowing for a stress-free bathing experience. A simple trick to ensure successful independent bathing.
Leave the Lights on
Seniors, who are more likely to get up in the middle of the night will need proper lighting. An easy way to create essential lighting is to leave the bathroom light on at night or use nightlights in the hallway and the bathroom. Adequate lighting makes a huge difference in bathing safety.
If you desire to stay in your home longer but want to do so safely, consider one of Miracle Method’s Bathing Safety Solutions Packages designed to fit your needs and budget. Contact your local Miracle Method at 855-212-7337 for more bathing safety information or simply click here.
