It might seem common to think that the size of the room suggests the number of possibilities that can be made. It is in fact true on some levels but it does not necessarily have to bet the case.

Although it is granted that it can’t be avoided that there will be furniture pieces that would touch the floor, other pieces that do not have to be by placing them on multiple wall hanging desks. Doing this not only makes the room look bigger but it also emanates a touch of being modern.

Super white walls and warm colors like dark blue or red when used with different hues create an illusion of endless space which are recommended for small spaced rooms. Making use of various colors may also be considered to give emphasis to the room or the house’s architecture and make. Walls do not necessarily have to be painted with a single color or tone.
Plain textured walls and furniture pieces make a room seem clean and minimalist. However, they may also pose a feel of being cold and unwelcoming. Considering various textures to furniture pieces for your furniture or even walls can make them seem larger than life or add character to a room.
Instant magic on lighting
Lighting is one of the major ways to give a room the oomph it needs. In fact, lighting can also be considered an art. It can instantly conjure coziness and sophistication to a room if done correctly. Candles and tungsten bulbs give out the feeling of sophistication or elegance in a room compared to just simply putting on fluorescent lights.
Expand with glass
Glass walls and furniture exude modernity in them. They are steadily becoming the trend in interior design. Glass furniture pieces are very flexible and easy to blend with other existing furniture in the house. Glass walls also create the illusion that a room is endless because of the walls’ transparency. Glass furniture pieces also work very well with lighting. The right color combinations create dramatic effects on a room.
