Maximize your square footage with these room-expanding tricks.

Add Multipurpose Pieces
Investing in furniture that serves many functions is a great way to streamline a room. An ottoman with built-in storage lets you tuck away blankets and books, and also makes a compact footrest.

Paint With Light Hues

Dark colors may seem design-friendly, but they make rooms look smaller. The lighter the shade is, the more open your space will appear, so stick to pale blues, grays, greens, yellows, and creams.

Reflect Your Room

Wall-to-wall mirrors may seem like a ’70s design leftover, but adding a little glass opens up the area and reflects light. On a budget? Cruise flea markets and garage sales for bargains.

Space Things Out

Automatically think you’ll make your room look bigger by shoving furniture against the wall? Sometimes a piece looks better at an angle or surrounded by space. Give your furniture breathing room, whether it’s angling your bed or floating your sofa in the living room with a skinny console behind it.

Fold It Up

Dining tables that can be made smaller or larger with removable or drop leaves let you make the most out of a combined living-dining area.

Go Monochromatic

Expand your room by painting the walls, trim, and detailing in different shades of one color, such as white, off-white, and beige. Or pair a bright white with a white that’s tinted with yellow or blue so you can use the deeper hue on trim and detailing.

Make Your Ceiling Pop

While you’ve probably heard that a clean, white ceiling will open up a space, giving your ceiling texture with bright colors and fun fixtures draws your eye upward, creating the illusion of height in a room.

Get Perspective

Leaving your windows uncovered will trick your eyes into thinking that your pad’s got depth — and reveal the natural beauty of the landscape outside.

Think Big

It’s easy to assume that you should decorate a small space with small furniture, right? Well, you’ll actually create an airier atmosphere by displaying one prominent item — from a statement sofa to a curved armchair — rather than putting tons of tiny pieces everywhere.

Color Code

In a small space, even your favorite items can quickly look like clutter unless you give them a little structure. Arranging knickknacks, books, and vases by color will make everything appear more streamlined.
