It's not just hocus pocus; well-placed mirrors can make more square footage instantly appear, thanks to
optical illusions. Let oversized or decorative mirrors serve double duty to visually expand your room or
create more depth and dimension. Smaller mirrors displayed as a group work together as an attractive
wall accent and, when added with other reflective surfaces, can distribute more natural light to broaden
your sense of space.
Fundamental interior design draws the eye around the entire room. Keep your floors clear by adding
more crucial storage with console or end tables, wall shelves, tall cabinets, storage ottomans, or
floating units such as wall-mounted bathroom vanities.
For extra impact, cover your floors with patterned are rugs or use decorative wallpaper or tiles
to create a feature wall or play up more ceiling height. Make your windows appear wider and taller
by hanging curtains and drapes higher and extending them just outside the frame.
Bonus tip: Apply neutral tones or similar shades with bursts of colour to create more visual interest.
Instead of struggling to stretch out available space, you can also accept your room's compact size
as a strength rather than a weakness. For a light, delicate, and intimate look and feel, opt for compact
pieces such as kitchen carts and stools. Or, in contrast, you can also create a feeling of luxury and
closeness by pairing dark, dramatic wallpaper patterns with larger furniture pieces such as dining
tables and seating, heavy bed frames or freestanding bathroom vanities. Don't be afraid to invest in
high-end upgrades such as hardware, countertops, cabinetry, or flooring that become more
budget-friendly with less square footage.
Sometimes simplicity is best. One of the biggest challenges of living in small spaces is the inevitable
mess that can quickly pile up to become a stressful eyesore. Cut it down with dual-purpose furniture
pieces, such as bathroom vanities that can serve as ministorage space for linens, a writing desk that
can also function as a nightstand, or a wall unit that conceals a Murphy bed. Glass accents and floating
shelves also help to keep your room free from any visual obstructions.
