  3. Natural Light: Pair your skylights with as many windows as possible. The more light you can let into a room the bigger it will feel.
  4. Wide Wood Floors: Installing wood floors with wider planks, rather than your standard 2 1/4 –inch, help a room feel much bigger.
  5. Simplicity: Declutter, declutter, declutter! Even the largest rooms will feel crowded and small if you have too much furniture, décor and mess.
  6. Choose Colors Wisely: Bold or dark colors can feel overpowering in a small room. Stick with lighter colors for paint, tiles and upholstery.
  7. Multi-functional furniture: Eliminate clutter and give the illusion of space by using multi-functional furniture. Window seats with storage, ottomans, storage bench with baskets all have dual purposes and are beautiful pieces to add to your collection.
  8. High Doors: If you can’t expand upward, consider installing high doors. They can exaggerate the height of the ceiling and make the room appear larger.
