To make your space look bigger, try angling your bed or use the trick of floating sofa in the living room with a skinny console behind it. Breathing room around your furniture lends the appearance of your room more space. Dark colors make your space appear smaller, so stick to pale colors to keep it light, airy and open; white, cream, pale gray and blues. Invest in multifunctional furniture to streamline a room; try a vintage streamer trunk or ottoman with built-in storage.
The quickest way to make a room appear larger is by hanging a mirror. Add small dining tables that are ideal for small areas so you can make the most of your eating-slash-living area. Go monochromatic by paint your walls, trim and detailing in different shades of one color to expand a room; white, off-white and beige. See another 39 décor ideas to make your space look bigger below.
