3 Ways to Gain Space in a Small Apartment

Use Light and Color to Your Advantage

Dark-colored paint not only decreases the light in a space, but also makes it feel smaller. If you want to fool the eye and to make your apartment look bigger, use light colors on the walls. Tan, cream, and white will reflect light and make the space seem larger. Table lamps and small candles will also make the room appear bigger while creating subtle ambiance.

Draw Attention to the Ceiling

Bringing the eyes to the ceiling is a great trick at creating a larger space. Installing shelves above the windows and doors and putting wallpaper on the ceiling will attract everyone’s eyes from the floor to the ceiling. You’ll not only make the space seem taller, but also create an attractive focal point in the room.

Stripes Work Great at Fooling the Eye

You know how wearing vertical stripes makes you appear taller? The same holds true for stripes in your room. A long rug with vertical stripes can make the room seem longer, extending the space and creating the illusion of a bigger apartment. Use stripes to your advantage, placing rugs in every room to fool the eye while creating the apartment of your dreams.
