It’s not easy to furnish a small room, because you have to be strategic about what you put in it and what you don’t so that it’s bright and clutter-free. However, there are ways to make it look bigger, more breathable and cosier. Here are some tips you can use to achieve this without making your rooms feel like they have no room to breathe.
Give the Room a Little Depth to Create the Illusion.
Include a light or dark colour palette to make the room appear larger. Using medium tones tends to make a room look smaller because of the lack of contrast. However, if you choose neutral tones to create a feeling of spaciousness, don’t forget to add a hint of colour. Opting for muted colours not only helps to create the illusion of a larger space but also helps to make it more relaxing and calming.
Choose Fewer Large Decorative Items Rather Than More Small Decorative Items.
Avoiding clutter is one of the most important factors in increasing the feeling of spaciousness. This is a good time to be choosy about furniture, rather than buying what you like just because it is available. Think about how the furniture serves a purpose for you. If it’s not necessary and doesn’t contribute to something important, you don’t need it! Let your room breathe and let yourself breathe; the key is getting rid of stuff.
Lighten up Accordingly
Lighting can indeed have a powerful effect on the illusion you are trying to create. Choose a variety of options to provide you with light, rather than just choosing one big old source, especially if you don’t have much natural light to support you. Another great way to play with the light source is to take care of the natural light. Be careful when placing furniture and decorative items, and make sure you don’t block the natural light source by placing them in front of windows.
Pay Attention to the Position of the Mirrors
The mirror is an element that can be relied on to create the illusion that a room is bigger than it is. It is a good idea to place the mirror opposite the light source to optimise its reflection effect and create a feeling of a larger and brighter room.

Breathable Fabrics are your Best Friend.
Remember that the key to attracting the eye is openness. Fabric or material that feels heavy is more likely to absorb light into a room, making it look dull and feel small. You want to make sure that the fabric you choose allows air and light to flow into the room simply because it is light.
