Selling is all about how you can make your rooms look the largest and brightest. 

 

Use Light Colors on the Walls and the Floor

While darker colors make a room seem cozy, they also absorb light instead of reflecting it, making the space feel smaller.  Opt for lighter colored flooring as well as wall colors to make the room feel airy.


Make Use of Hidden Storage and Multi-Purpose Items
Obtain and utilize a coffee table or ottoman with storage


Hang Shelves Near the Ceiling to Draw the Eye Upwards


Use Fewer Decorations that are Bigger


Use Stripes to Elongate the Space
Just like vertical stripes on clothing, a striped rug will make your room appear longer. Orient the stripes to go the length of the room that is the longest for optimal effect.


Leave Your Windows Uncovered to Give a Room More Depth
More light gives a space depth. If you're worried about privacy, roman shades or blinds instead of curtains look less crowded.


Buy Glass or Plexiglass Items
Glass and lucite pieces are totally in style right now, and can provide an added function of not taking up too much visual space.


Furniture with Exposed Legs are Key
Instead of a sofa with a skirt or boxy chairs, bigger pieces with exposed legs are perfect for a small space.


Strategically Place Mirrors to Create the Illusion of more space
Placing a mirror across from a window is the best way to reflect light and make the room feel larger.
