enough room to swing a cat

In the English language we use lots of funny expressions as any other language. Does anyone know any Arabic (عامية/فصحى) equivalents to this phrase that they use at home?

expressing room/spaciousness of an area: " enough room to swing a cat"

Especially funny ones!

    Arabic - Syria
    سيّاح نيّاح in Syrian
    In Palestinian, you can call a spacious area a بحر.
    Nice, it reminds me of Aramaic بحر for كثير/ كبير or maybe it is a figurative usage of Arabic baħr for sea.
