You can still make a big impact in a small space. With bursts of colour and slight decor changes, you can easily make a huge statement.

Not only can small changes help give tiny rooms more personality, you can also trick your space into feeling much bigger. Mirrors, colours, and styling tricks will help you feel like you’re in a grander space than you are.

A few of our recommendations include..

1. Play With Mirrors and Light


The easiest way to make a small space feel bigger is playing with reflections. Installing an oversized mirror, a grid layout, or a gallery wall of mirrors in different sizes and shapes is a great way to add the illusion of more square footage into any space.

2. Adding a bold rug


A sizeable rug can instantly transform the vibe in your small space and create a more expansive feel.

3. Adding Shelves


Adding shelves to a blank wall and styling them with what you already own is an easy way to make a major impact in a small space.

4. Let in the Light


Any room will look larger if it's well-lit, either by natural light or artificial lighting. Get rid of heavy draperies, and open up the windows to let the light of the outdoors into the space.

5. Add A Touch Of Life


Adding greenery to a small space is the easiest way to add colour and fill awkward spaces.
