(How)can you trick your eye in to believing your space is larger than it actually is?
2. Round tables work well – They’re east to walk around and you can always squeeze in an extra chair. Plus, they often look fine if they’re off center in a wall or in front of a sofa.
3. Lateral accents expand the space – Paint your walls with horizontal bands in three related colors or several sheens of the same hue
4. Mirrors open up small spaces – Many mirrors set at different angles open up a room even more and reflect bits and pieces of things you might not otherwise notice.
5. Use small sources of light – LAmpshades that concentrate the light give the impression that a space is smaller.
6. Leave the ceiling unlit or you’ll feel it’s on your head – Several small lamps will add character and depth to the room.
9. Add interior windows – (open spaces in a wall) to allow light, air and conversations to pass from room to room.
10. Keep the eye moving – Make window treatments and walls the same colour.
11. Get rid of doors wherever you can – Replace them if you like with light curtains.
12. Go for things of good quality – In a small space everything received attention.
