1. Hang Mirrors

Use mirrors to help create the illusion of a bigger room, larger mirrors work best but anything helps.


2. Draw the eye upwards

Highlight tall ceilings by using curtains and artwork to emphasis the height of the room.



3. Let in plenty of light

Smaller rooms can easily become dark and dingy, avoid this by keeping the windows unobstructed, use light curtains and extra lights if needed.


4. Use lightweight furniture

You want to keep the floor-space open to keep the room from looking smaller than it actually is. Using raised furniture and less-blocky pieces will help to combat this.
