Want to make the most of your studio apartment or a small nook? Use these tips and tricks to maximize your square footage!


Paint it White

Painting a room white makes a space feel more bright and open, giving the illusion of more space. Also, white allows furniture and accessories to stand out. Besides paint, you can also look at using textured white wallpapers.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

This is one of the oldest tricks in the books of interior designers when it comes to making small space appear larger. Mirrors create the feeling of depth. Depending on size of the space, mirror up accordingly. Also, instead of using different frames, get a single mirror sheet to cover your wall.

Let There be (a Big) Light

By hanging a large lighting fixture, you draw an observer’s attention to the ceiling, giving him/her the illusion of height. These days mid-century orb-lighting fixtures with filament bulbs are trending quite a lot.

Keep it All Above Eye-level

You can create illusion of height by displaying artwork and your favorite pictures above eye-level. If you are searching for picture frames, try these golden ones from our collection; they complement all color schemes.

Use Full-size Furniture

Have you ever emptied a room and realized that it looks much smaller with the furniture gone? While this may seem counter-intuitive, but full-size furniture provides a feeling of depth, thereby making a room look larger. Also, on the bright side, it helps bury unsightly objects such as wires.
