From tiny apartments, to small nooks in houses, most of us have had to deal with a small space at one point or another. Luckily, there are plenty of design and decorating techniques to make your space feel bigger than it is. Interior designer Anna Ward, of Furnished by Anna, said it best, “when treated like a jewel box, small rooms become cozy instead of cramped.”  Below are some foolproof tricks of the trade to keep your jewel box of a room from feeling cramped:

Lighten up 

Simple science tells us that dark colors absorb light, while light colors reflect it. While white is certainly an option, using pale or pastel colors on walls or floor can also keep your room from feeling like it’s closing in on you. 

Reflect

Strategically-placed mirrors can do wonders for a tiny room. “Use large mirrors to bounce around light as well as trick the eye into thinking the room is larger because of the reflection.” HGTV star Emily Henderson told Brit + Co. If a jumbo mirror isn’t in your budget, mirrored furniture, like end tables or dressers, can pull off the illusion as well.

Space it out

Your first instinct might be to push everything up against the wall to create more floor space, but does it really work? And boom, place your area rugs that you bought from RugKnots! The answer is no. Instead, move furniture a few inches away from the wall so the room doesn’t seem jam-packed. 

Tchotchke limit

While you might have an amazing collection of knick-knacks and ceramic pineapples, it’s best to leave little objects elsewhere. Interior designer and author, Sabrina Soto, recommends opting for a few large decorative accents. “Decorative accents that are smaller than a cantaloupe cramp a room,” Soto explains.

Be Clear

“Like an invisibility cloak for your furniture, anything made of clear acrylic is an excellent choice for small spaces,” says New York designer Tara Benet. Choosing a lucite coffee table or clear end table creates the illusion of minimal furniture, or in other words less stuff. 

Tall Curtains

Placing curtains at the ceiling instead of the top of the window forces the eye upwards and plays up the room’s vertical space. “The drapery placement frames the window, makes the window look twice as big, and lifts the room in perceived height,” says Cathy, a Home Goods blogger and interior designer. “It’s kind of an optical illusion, but it really works wonders.”
