This space isn't small, but it shows how keeping the flooring color the same from room to room furthers the feeling of spaciousness.
Remove your area rugs and scatter rugs. Unbroken floor space always makes a room appear larger.
Skip the skirts on upholstered furniture. Incorporate leggy pieces and glass or Lucite tables.
Let your light shine! A well-lit room always looks larger. Let in the natural light and add lots of attractive artificial light in the form of hanging light fixtures, sconces and lamps.
Install French doors, get rid of heavy window dressings and banish your sheers to make your room feel more open and spacious.
Tall pieces of furniture in the far corners of a room draw your eye back and make the room look bigger, especially if the furniture is light-colored, like these white armoires (click photo to see full view).
This interior illustrates how a warm, neutral wall color throughout an open floor plan, along with lots of different light sources, draws your eye all around the space and expands the sense of size.
