Mistake #1: White Walls
Don’t limit yourself to white walls or lighter paint colors. Bold, dramatic paint colors can also make a space appear larger. The key is to have a monochromatic color scheme throughout your house. You can even blur the lines of the room by continuing your bold wall color onto the ceiling.
Mistake #2: Small Furniture
Don’t rely on just small furniture. Often, several little pieces in a small space, like a sofa and two accent chairs, can make a room look cluttered. Larger furniture, like a sectional, creates a visual impact and gives the small space more character.
Mistake #5: Crowding the Surfaces
Surfaces get crowded overtime and makes the space look even smaller. Don’t clutter tables with lamps, frames, and knicknacks. Consider wall light fixtures or hanging lights, create a gallery wall of picture frames, and display a couple of knickknacks on floating wall shelves.
