  2. Keep the paint color light. Going with lighter and brighter hues will keep a smaller area open and feel roomier.
  3. Keep items properly scaled. Keep your furniture light and avoid heavy pieces.
  4. Go for lighter textures like sheer curtains or drapes.
  5. Furniture that also stores items are a great way to keep your small space organized.
  6. Maximize a small spaceConsider multi-propose furniture like futons that can be utilized and folded away when not in use.
  7. Think about lighter metal furniture pieces instead of heavier woods.
  8. Hanging mirrors give the illusion of a larger, open room. If you can, place a mirror opposite a window to maximize the natural light.
  9. Floating and built-in shelves and countertops are a smart way to cut back on furniture but keep items in their place.
  10. Layer your lighting. Mixing floor lamps with overhead lighting to increase the overall light and make the space feel larger.
