1. Choose furniture that has thin (and pin) legs that won't block the visual flow of your space.
2. Use accent chairs as ops to go bold in color choices, textures, patterns, and silhouettes on a scale that won't overwhelm your space.
3. Don't discount the workhouses they call side tables as another major focal point.
4. Look for extra seating that you can use on the reg in other ways, like throw pillows that serve as pouffs and garden stools you can use as side tables.
5. Harness the room-enlarging ability of natural light and hang some sculptural wall art with an interesting mirror.
6. Maybe lean a large mirror on the wall adjacent to (not across from!) a window to make things look even bigger, brighter.
7. And opt for mirrored furniture to make the most of light play.
8. Keep in mind that chrome furniture has a similar effect on a slightly less-Liberace level. I for one, aim for mirrored and Liberace-level everything. But whatever, it's your place.
9. Send bar carts and kitchen carts friend requests because they'll do so much for your tiny space in the most orderly manner.
10. ~Visually~ raise the roof by hanging curtains above the window frame.
11. Make sure your area rug fits your room because a rug that's too small or two big'll just make everything look weird.
12. Widen the look of your room with a striped rug.
13. Or, just stick with a light-colored rug to make things look lighter and brighter.
14. Become BFFs with lucite furniture for a spacious look that's basically sorcery.
15. Find a useful little nightstand that'll pull more than its weight in your cramped bedroom.
16. Mount floating shelves as a storage solution that won't clutter up your floor plan.
17. Consider stacking or nesting furniture for fulfilling your needs with a stow-and-go approach.
