Choosing the right style! Sometimes when furniture is not right for the size of the room, it can make it look cluttered and disorganized. I've always thought mid-century modern style a great style for small rooms; the clean lines and soft colors make it look so much spacious and neat.

I'm OCD, so my house always looks staged. I worry that this makes it less comfortable and welcoming. But my one suggestion would be for those with pets, make sure their blankets and steps blend in with your room decor.
