Small-scale furniture only makes a small bedroom look smaller. Try a high bed and a tall headboard. Your room will grow.

 

3. Leave Cabinets Open

6. Use a Real Rug in the Bathroom

Use a rug instead of a bath mat. It was made to withstand a lot more wear than the occasional wet foot.

 

7.Layer Your Lighting

Keep throws under control. Fold them lengthwise, then in half, then tuck them into cushions.

The most versatile coffee table you’ll ever own is an ottoman topped with a tray.

Too many chair and table legs can make a room “nervous.”  A skirted piece or two will make it feel “grounded.

 

11. Switch Up Your Seating

Mix up the seating at your dining table. You wouldn’t have eight identical chairs in your living area.
