Decorate your rooms to scale. The objects in the room should never overwhelm the sres, desks and chests that are too large for the space generally draw attention to the fact that the room is small. Select furniture with clean, smooth lines that won’t look out of place.

  1. 2

    Select colors within the same hue throughout the entire living space, such as different shades of blue. Monochromatic color schemes make rooms appear larger and more spacious. Walls painted in lighter colors will make a room feel more airy and using the same shade throughout the room will make it feel unified.

  2. 3

    Arrange furniture with the living space in mind. Avoid placing chairs and tables in areas where you will bump into them and be sure to keep enough space between furniture pieces to allow for movement.

  3. 4

    Balance the room with heavier pieces of furniture spaced evenly apart. Avoid placing two large pieces close together. A balanced look will avoid making the space seem crowded.

  4. 5

    Utilize the wall space in your efficiency or studio. Hang shelving and storage where they can double as decorative pieces. Shelves that go all the way to the ceiling allow you to get the most of your wall. Use walls in the kitchen area for hanging pots, pans and other cookware.

  5. 6

    Invest in items that have multiple uses. Sofa beds or futons work well in efficiency spaces because they double as useful pieces of furniture when you’re not using the bed. Dining room tables can act as work spaces when you’re not using them for eating. Trunks serve as sturdy coffee tables and storage units.

  6. 7

    Hang mirrors for a spacious feel to your apartment. They reflect light and, if you can position one across from a window, it will make the space seem larger.
