What studio apartment?

5. Make your ceilings look taller by hanging long curtains above the window frame. These tassel-trim curtains come in several colors and lengths, and will let you have the perfect balance of privacy and light.

6. Or, forgo (inches of) space-hogging curtains and add a second layer to your windows with cool, privacy enhancing window film.

8. Sick to death of room-elongating stripes? Opt for a light-hued area rug that'll have a similar effect as light-bouncing mirrors.

And place (at least two of) the room's furniture's feet on the rug to make it look like it fits the room perfectly.

Get a 4'x6' rug from Amazon for $60.48. / Available in five sizes.

9. That also goes for light-colored runners that'll brighten up any dim, narrow hallway or galley kitchen.

10. Amplify any and all light sources with a compact mirrored table to make a room look brighter and bigger.

18. Bounce around light in a teensy kitchen like nobody's business with a stainless-steel kit that'll transform appliances.

21. Shield your eyes from the glint of trash — yes, trash — with a sleek waste bin.

29. Do as people have for centuries and make the most of natural light by placing mirrors on a wall adjacent to natural light for the effect of a bigger room with more windows.

Be glad you don't have to rely on mirrors to help provide reading (candle)light.

Get them from AllModern for $17.55.
