1. Lift the curtains or blinds

Place your curtain rods or blinds closer to the ceiling rather than the window frame. The vertical lines of the curtains or blinds draw the eyes upwards, making the room appear taller.

2. Add a rug

Rugs can be used to define and divide different spaces in a room. Rugs that lie under furniture distract the eyes and make the area look wider. You could opt for different types of rugs depending on the effect you are trying to achieve.

3. Add a mirror

Mirrors reflect light and warp space, making it look wider. They brighten and add depth to a room. Whether a wall mirror or a full-length one, a mirror can be all you need to upgrade your space.

4. Add some art

Add some artwork to your walls to enhance your space. Not only do they beautify a room and make it look more expensive, but art also drives the eyes upward and away from the more cluttered floor area. You could even be more creative by adding a neon light or sculpture!

5. Add some vertical storage

In a small room, you would want to free up the ground as much as possible. Avoid leaving anything on the floor that is not furniture. Add some shelves, hooks, and storage containers to make use of the walls for storage.
