Having a small living space in Northern Virginia doesn't necessarily mean that you need to feel cramped. There are ways that you can do to make a small room feel and look more spacious. Here are some amazing tips that might want to check out.

Have Fun with Paint

One of the best ways to make a room look big is by using a variety of neutral and light colors. You can even apply pale pastels. The lighter your walls are, the more reflection you will have, thus giving you the illusion of having more space.

Flooring Options

To further enhance that spacious look and feel in a room, make sure that the floors are on lighter shades. From putting pale colored carpet to using light stained wood, these things can instantly create a more spacious atmosphere.

Furniture Selections

Choosing the right furniture is crucial to making a room look bigger. It's advisable that you stick to one color. Use minimal pieces that go perfectly with the shade of your wall and floor. Add a little texture and variety by putting area rugs and throw pillows of the same shade. The key here is to avoid a cluttered look to give that open feel in an otherwise small area.
