Make a small space spacious with the right furniture
In previous tips I discussed many ways to make your room feel bigger from being mindful of scale and paint colors to window treatment tricks. But the tricks don’t end there!
If you have a small space, take a living room for example, and are on the hunt for the right furniture, remember that the more space you see, the more spacious the room will feel. By this I mean instead of a couch and chairs that go to floor, find ones with exposed legs, this will help minimize the size of the furniture and visually maximize your space. Go for a glass top coffee table instead of solid wood, when you can see the floor, the table will feel like less of an obstruction. Swap out a bookcase for floating wall mount shelves. Finally, find lamps with slender bases for your end tables.
