Get rid of clutter

Clutter doesn't necessarily mean messy (although a messy house will make it feel smaller). Clutter just means unnecessary things are taking up space that you probably could stand to get rid of. For example, too much seating in the living room, too many appliances on the countertops, or even shelving packed with too much decor. Cutting down on how many things are out in the open will open up the space in each room, making it look and feel bigger!

Mirrors, mirrors, mirrors

As we all know, mirrors reflect everything in their path and sometimes trick the mind a little. When you invest in some big and tall mirrors, it will reflect the whole room, making it appear bigger than it actually is. Use mirrors to help make a small space look twice the size!

Natural light

Nothing beats natural light. You can't fake it with any lamp or other kind of light, no matter what the product claims. If you want a room to feel bigger and brighter, consider adding a few windows. This will help open up the space and bring in some natural light, making it feel brighter and less boxy/cramped. Not to mention, sunlight is good for you!
