I love finding small space homes and rooms that live large. I live in a small space home now. It is a 725 square foot apartment with a large fenced patio. That patio is an extended living space and I take full advantage of it!
Below are rooms I’ve located for inspiration to show you.
The ubiquitous large mirror is always important in a small space home. It always makes a space look larger.
Let in the light. If you have windows that let in a lot of light, it makes the space look larger.
If you live in an apartment above the first floor, you might not even use window treatments. If you live in the city, you might have a beautiful night scene with illuminated buildings you could see from your apartment.
Less is more. If in doubt, eliminate. I suggest you add one piece of furniture at a time. Add what you think you want in that room. Then edit.
Use furniture with legs. It opens up the space visually.
Accessorize to make your home look cozy and lived in, but not cluttered.
