If you’re feeling cramped in your current residence, you’re probably longing for a more spacious place to live. Spacious is an adjective that means "roomy" or "having plenty of room."

The adjective spacious is most commonly used to describe living quarters that have plenty of space, but it can be used to describe other things as well. A luxury sedan, for example, might be said to have a spacious interior. Spacious can also be used to mean “having an expansive scope.” A spacious novel, for instance, would be a novel that deals with a broad range of characters and issues. Don’t confuse spacious with specious, which means something that sounds true but is actually false.
