Decorate with mirrors
Designers often place mirrors strategically in small places to make them feel bigger. One of the most common ideas of small living room is to hang a large mirror in a central location to create a focal point. To reflect the light and add a good mood, place it behind a light source such as a candle or a hanging lamp. If possible, place a mirror in front of your window so that it reflects the view and gives the illusion of another window.
Draw the eye up
A part has a vertical dimension as well as a horizontal dimension. If your living room has a high ceiling, make the most of the extra space by decorating it in a way that catches the eye up. Floor-to-ceiling curtains are a stylish way to achieve this goal.
Another idea is to fill the vertical space with a menagerie of small and medium works of art. This technique will make the room larger than it actually is, as it invites the eye to wander beyond horizontal space at eye level that may seem confined.
Choose furniture with a light appearance
When shopping for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Choose pieces that look light, as the heaviest ones will seem to tighten a space.
Opt for pale colors rather than dark colors and choose pieces that have legs while avoiding those that are square. Glass coffee or end tables will occupy less visual space than wooden tables because you will be able to see them through. Any furniture that does not obstruct the views will make an area more open.
