- Mirrors dissolve a room's boundaries and reflect light, making any space appear bigger.
- When space is tight, always ask yourself: How can I use this room for two purposes instead of one?
- An area feels bigger if there's nothing to stop the eye.
- Transparent furniture, such as a glass coffee table or glass dining room table takes up less visual space. Furniture that sits atop exposed legs seem to float above the floor. And when you can see the surface underneath the furniture, the space feels larger.
- To make the room appear taller, curtains were mounted near the ceiling, drawing the eyes upward
- When space is tight, don't let the TV must not steal the space. Use a more prominent arrangement take focus away from TV or hide TV in drawers.
