In last week's blog post, we discussed a few tactics that help make smaller spaces seem larger. If you're still feeling a little squeezed in, try these additional tips from TheNest.com. They'll help create the illusion of more square footage.
1. Use glass and mirrors to reflect the natural light from windows and exploit the full size of the room. Glass-top tables will create the illusion that they're not taking up space, while mirrors reflect what space is available.
2. Find multi-purpose furniture. Ottomans that double as chairs or extra storage, sleeper couches and desks that also work as a kitchen or dining room table are great examples. There are a lot of affordable compact living solutions available from places like IKEA, so start shopping!
3. Buy larger furniture. Believe it or not, larger furniture can help make a room feel larger. It's easy to clutter up a room with too many small pieces, while a few efficiently used sizeable pieces can limit clutter.
