A Feature Wall

By making the largest wall of your space into a feature wall, you immediately draw attention to the largest area of space, deceiving the eye into thinking the room offers more space than it really does.

A feature wall is one that stands out against a typically neutral backdrop. Feature walls can add a touch of personality and colour to a room, without over crowding it and making it feel even smaller.


You don’t want to make your living space feel like you’ve just walked into the House of Mirrors at a fun fair, however, by strategically placing mirrors opposite windows or open doorways, you reflect the extra space, making the room you are in feel a lot bigger. For a greater effect, you could opt for a frameless mirror, or one that has a reflective frame so it blends into the rest of the wall, rather than becoming a stand out feature.

Multi Use Furniture

The furniture you incorporate into a space can make a huge difference to not only how much space you will have left to move around the living room, but also how cramped the space feels. When deciding on the furniture you will incorporate into a small room, it will be necessary to strike the elusive balance between aesthetic appeal and practicality. Using furniture with multiple uses, such as sofas that turn into beds, or that have under-cushion storage, or coffee tables with drawers underneath, will ensure that your living space stays functional yet stylish.
