Step 1: Use color Use vibrant paint. Contrary to popular belief, white doesn't make a room look larger; deeper colors do by making corners disappear. If you want to use a light color, give the space an accent wall in a darker shade; it elongates the room by making the wall appear to recede. Tip If you have carpeting, paint the baseboards the same color. Step 2: Avoid small furniture Avoid small furniture. It may seem counterintuitive, but a few oversized pieces work better in a modestly-sized room than a lot of tiny furnishings, which just make a room look cluttered. Step 3: Use two mirrors Place mirrors on walls across from each other to produce the illusion of a room that goes on and on. Tip Choose mirrors with thick glass, which better reflects dimension. Step 4: Choose complementary furnishings Choose furnishings in shades that complement each other. Having a lot of competing colors and patterns makes a room look smaller. Step 5: Let it in the light Use sheer curtains that can be pulled completely away from the windows during the day; dark rooms look smaller. Hang the curtain rod near the ceiling, and have it extend past the sides of the window; this gives the illusion of a larger window, and therefore a larger room. Step 6: Tile it In small kitchens and bathrooms, use subway tile - 3- by 6-inch ceramic tiles -- to add depth, or glass tile, which reflects light. Did You Know? Did you know? Japan invented the capsule hotel concept, which offer rooms as small as 75 square feet.
