It’s not easy turning a small space into one that is spacious and comfortable, but you can start with some easy colour tips:

1) DRAW THE EYE UPWARDS

Create a continuous line from your wall up to your ceiling to help draw the eyes upwards, lending the illusion of a higher ceiling.

2) CHOOSE LIGHT COLOURS

Lighter colours always help reflect more light, meaning a brighter, more spacious-looking home for you.

3) CHOOSE MONOCHROMATIC COLOURS

Make the room appear larger with a monochrome colour scheme. It allows the eye to move around more easily than in a room with strong contrasting hues. Using different shades of the same colour can help create interiors that aren’t flat and monotonous.

4) AVOID DIFFERENT FLOORING

Continuous flooring in the same colour or material can help your home appear larger. Also, rugs with stripes or long floorboards can help elongate the space as well.

5) MATCHING WINDOW TREATMENTS

Window treatments play an important role in your home. Avoid using thick heavy drapes and bring the curtain rod way above the actual window. Frame your windows with light-coloured fabrics in a similar colour to your walls.
