Excellent Tips for Making Any Room Seem Bigger

If you’ve been looking for ways to make a small room seem bigger, you’ve come to the right place. This article will present you with the top tips for making any space look bigger, and that’s true even if it’s about as big as a closet to start with.


  1. Choose the right furniture.


The first thing that you need to do is to choose the right furniture. Not all furniture is created equally, which means that some looks better than others in small spaces. A great place to check out for small space furniture is Pottery Barn because they only recently released a line of this type of furniture.


  1. Use mirrors to your advantage.


Mirrors can be great for small spaces because they open them up by reflecting the opposite side of the room. Aim for big mirrors because small ones just won’t do the trick unless you have a lot of them.


  1. Open up the room with light.


There are techniques ways that always open up a space, and light is one of them. If you have windows in the room, don’t cover them with blinds or curtains all of the time. Instead, keep them as open as possible. If you must have curtains, use sheer curtains that still let some light in. Additionally, try to have as many lamps as you can in the room. Candles can help make the space seem cozier as well.


  1. Get rid of clutter where you can.


Last but not least, get rid of all of that clutter in your small space. It can’t handle it! You’ll want to pick pieces of furniture that have storage space inside so that you can put some of the knickknacks away once in a while. Similarly, try not to keep lots of figurines, vases, books and picture frames on the tops of tables. Put them on the wall or don’t put them up at all.


Using these tips and tricks will surely open up any small space. Try them in your home to see how they work!


Bruce Levenson and the Do Good Institute Help Create Society’s Next Philanthropists

The work of non-profit organizations across the world are often invaluable sources of relief for untold numbers of people who are afflicted by the many disasters and crisis our world is prone to house. Whether it is providing clean drinking water to remote villages, shoes for disadvantaged youth, or simply making sure that food does not go wasted non-profit organizations are often responsible for many of the humanitarian efforts across the globe.

But as a new generation of philanthropists is born and the world of business is constantly changing, the next wave of leaders within the non-profit sector need a little more help than the previous generation to fix the world’s problems.

The Do Good Institute and Bruce Levenson

Bruce Levenson, the former owner of the NBA favorites, the Atlanta Hawks, turned philanthropists and non-profit investor, created the Do Good Institute in response to one of the major failings Levenson witnessed during his time within the non-profit sector.

Far too often, UCG chairman Bruce Levenson noticed that some wonderful people leading non-profit organizations with valid motives would watch their organization fall apart for various reasons due to a lack of real-world business skills.

So to better equip the next wave of leaders within the non-profit sector, Bruce Levenson, and the Do Good Institute are aiming to teach the students on the University of Maryland’s campus the necessary skill they will need to become successful leaders in the non-profit sector. The program by the Forbes billionaire is still very much in its early stages of creation has become a student favorite for its unique approach to teaching philanthropy and civics.
