Be careful with dark colors
A simple and effective trick to give a wide breath to the interior design even when the space is not very large, is to choose light shades of color for walls, floors and furniture in general. Neutral shades, or shades belonging to the pastel colors palette are ideal for creating the illusion of a more spacious and airy space. Therefore, it would be better to avoid dark colors as much as possible, and when you do want to use them, to be very careful about how you balance them out with the rest of the décor.

Make the most out of your walls
Speaking of illusions, the number one trick interior designers use to visually enlarge a small size room is to decorate the walls. It may seem to you like paintings, mirrors and frames will make your tiny interiors look cramped, but the final effect will show you just the opposite. The most effective wall decoration in making a space look bigger is undoubtedly the mirror. By placing one or two in a room, it will be like opening a window overlooking another room. The important thing is not to keep the wall on the other side completely empty, since dynamism is a very important element even for the mirror reflection.

Pay attention to dark corners
Lighting design also plays a fundamental role in the decoration of small size interiors. A tiny room requires a wise and smart positioning of the artificial light sources: this is the only way to create a welcoming environment which won’t make us feel oppressed. Natural light is of vital importance to make a space look larger and more pleasant, but, when this factor is lacking, artificial lighting design can come to our rescue. Instead of just one big chandelier coming down from the ceiling, you could go for multiple light sources. Abat-jours, floor lamps and adjustable spotlights will create an arabesque of lights that will reach any dark corner in the room. Once they are well illuminated, you will find out how much space you were not exploiting in those previously dark nooks.
