Small living spaces can be difficult to decorate. With so little room to work with, you tend to overestimate what you need and underestimate the space you actually have. Here are some useful tips on how you can work within the confines of the space you have and make it appear bigger than it actually is.
As you’re already working with a small space, you can’t afford for any unnecessary objects to be accumulating either on floor spaces or on table tops. Inconspicuous shelving or storage units that can be hid behind doors are ideal for stowing away anything that ends up strewn all over the floor.

Use light smartly
Don’t rely on a single light source that’s placed in the centre of the room. Multiple light sources tend to spread the light around the space, making it appear more spacious because the focus is extended over a wider area. You can also make use of the vertical space you have by varying the length of your light fixture, which is attached to the ceiling.
Allowing natural light into a space automatically opens it up and makes it look bigger than it actually is so you can also do away with heavy drapes.
Choose furniture with storage compartments
This is a given. Multi-functional furniture can double up as a coffee table or some much-needed storage space. They are also convenient places to store items you usually forget on the way out of the house.
Use mirrors, plants and artwork strategically
Mirrors are known to be able to manipulate depth perception, meaning, you can use mirrors to visually expand the room, or the space as a whole. Floor-length mirrors or ceiling-height plants draw focus towards the ceiling and around the room. You should also place artworks above the average line of focus in order to manipulate the vertical space of the room.
