Clever Tricks to Make A Tiny Room Feel Spacious

There’s nothing worse than feeling cramped when you are spending time in your living room or working in your home office. In this post, we share tips and tricks to make your tiny room or apartment feel spacious.


For an instant space boost, embark on a decluttering mission! This first step opens the door to finding the items that truly matter to you, and to let your room breathe. The fewer items you stack up or keep on the floor, the more spacious the room will feel. Hidden storage in ottomans conceals toys, while table skirts provide discreet cover for off-season items. You can also store bulky items under your bed. To help get you started on decluttering, check out these organizing tips.

Strategically Place Mirrors

Placing mirrors in small rooms makes them feel more open. Leaning a large mirror against a wall not only reflects light to make the room look bigger, but they also add a touch of style. Topping a table with a mirror surface can create the same effect.

Make Use of Glass and Lucite

Transparent furniture, such as glass or Lucite, makes any room shine because it practically disappears in plain sight, allowing light to pass through and making the room feel more open. Worried about fragility? Glass-top tables with sturdy wood, stone, or metal bases offer both lightness and durability, brightening your space without sacrificing practicality.

Utilize Big Furniture Pieces

You may think having a lot of small pieces of furniture is more suitable for a smaller room; however, having too many pieces can make a space look cluttered. Instead, a few larger pieces can create a calming, less chaotic effect, making your space feel more peaceful. Selecting items that sit closer to the ground also creates a more visually open feeling.

Bold Walls

With the right colors, bold wallpaper or paint can create depth in any room. An eye-catching accent wall gives the illusion of a larger space, softening the corners and making it more visually appealing. The trick is to select a large-scale print or paint bold vertical lines (smaller prints or patterns can create a cramped feeling).
