2. White on Mind
White opens up spaces, keeping walls and floors white eases up the space. A gallery wall with wide-matted art and white frames blends in with the wall, so the effect is eye-catching yet uncluttered. That way you can make a colorful piece of furniture the focal point of the room, so it’s not like the walls are closing in on you.

Curtains helps to maximize the light in the living room, add a touch of dreamy drama. So go bold, choose bright colors, contrasting textures or go soft pastel, plain white and match them to your décor. This is an area where you can experiment endlessly and change the look of your space much more frequently with just a quick change of the curtains. A swish, a poof and there you are in a new wonderland!

Install artwork to trick the eye expanding the highlight of the room. A gallery wall might seem too busy for a small space, but can make you room feel much larger if it extends till the ceiling, creating a sense of drama! And you could very well accentuate it with spot lights and viola in an instant your living room will transform into a studio apartment! Isn’t that interesting?
5. Flaunt the Furniture
Furniture adds life to a living room. Resist the urge to push all of your furniture up against the walls. If you create space behind the furniture, it makes the room look wider than it is.
