Is your tiny city apartment or super modest house starting to feel a bit too cramped for comfort? While most of us don't have the luxury of hiring an architect to add on more kitchen space, or the money to live in a more spacious apartment, there are a number of simple things we can do with what we have to create the illusion of more indoor space within our walls.
Here are a few simple interior decorating rules to abide by...
Light colors on walls make rooms look bigger than dark colors. Natural light is a must. If you can, color-coordinate your furniture so that it's the same or similar color as your walls; this creates the illusion of your furniture blending into your walls, thus creating a sense of more open space. If wall painting, new furniture, and color coordination sound like too much work, you can always get rid of what you already have to add more space. Big space or small space, having less stuff to deal with is always a good thing.
