10 decorating tips to make a small room appear larger.
1– Light colors make your room look bigger and brighter. Light colored walls reflect more light, making a space feel open and airy.
2–Create the illusion of height, by drawing the eye up., Use vertical lines that lead the eye from the floor up to the ceiling.. if the ceiling appears higher it gives the illusion of breathing space. To do this try; hanging your draperies high to the ceiling and then let them fall all the way to the floor. Or hang art work higher..
3-Move the furniture off the walls and towards the center of the room. Adding air space between the walls and seating areas creates the impression of depth and more room.
