If you don’t have the budget for a large space, you can still make it feel spacious! There are ways to decorate and use storage in a room to make it seem deceivingly bigger, and usually without having to do anything too costly. Try these tips and watch your apartment grow in size overnight!


Having mirrors around a room can make the space feel bigger because it is reflecting everything around it, giving it the illusion that you are in a large room. Also, go for pieces like coffee or dining room tables that have a glass top. The more you see of a room, the bigger it will feel.


Rugs can sometimes swallow a room, so make sure you get one that is smaller than the piece of furniture underneath it. That will make it a focal point of the room without taking up too much space.


If you have a small kitchen, make use of all the cabinets you have. Use simple things like baskets and command hooks inside the cabinets and cabinet doors to make sure as much is off the counter and hidden away as you can, giving you more space to work and a better display for guests.
