  1. Light and bright color schemes

Open up the room with light colored walls- cream yellow, eggshell white, or even baby pink! Purchase pant that has a high-gloss or semi-gloss instead of a flat matte finish. Dark colored walls minimize the visual size of a room. Light colors do the opposite.

  1. Sofa styles matter

Choose sofas, and other furniture, that are lifted off the floor. Pick pieces with tall legs to give the illusion of more space. When you are able to see 'through' the legs, the room looks bigger.

  1. Lights camera action!

A hip teen knows the value of good lighting when it comes to selfies- homes are no different! Lighting in a room can make a break the feeling of the room. If you have natural light, LET IT IN! Push back the curtains with a stylish hook or tie. If you don't have many windows, purchase cute light fixtures or lamps.

You can include light in your room in unconventional ways. A salt lamp can be a cool source of light on a bookshelf or a stylish jar/vase full of string lights.
