6/12/15 FUN FACT FRIDAY – One Small Tip to Make a Room Seem Larger

Got space problems? Changing the way your door swings might help.

A 32-inch door typically eats up about 13 sq. ft. of floor space when it swings. Change the door swing and you can decide where to place that wasted space — on the left or right of your doorway, or on the inside or outside of the wall.

Here are some advantages of changing the swing:

  • Change the swing from inside to outside, and you can reclaim the entire 13 sq. ft. in a small room, which could let you have that sofa after all.
  • Change the swing from left to right (or vice versa) and you free up the wall space where the door would rest. Now you’ve got room for a desk, table, or dresser.
  • Remove the door and switch to a sliding or pocket door, and you have 13 sq. ft. to use any way you want.
