Hang Curtains near the top of the ceiling, not right above the windows. If you put your curtains about 1 to 3 inches from the top of the ceiling and let them go all the way down to the floor then it will make your space seem much larger.

2. Open space

Remove unnecessary clutter and adopt an open floor plan wherever possible. The presence of space in a room can dramatically change how people feel when entering.

3. Point couches toward each other

Having couches pointed toward each other instead of pointed towards a television does a wonderful job at promoting conversation. Unless of course you’re having a gathering specifically for a movie or sporting event.

4. Cover up televisions when not in use.

Find a piece of fabric that matches to color scheme of your room and place it over the television when you’re not using it. Even when a tv is not on it had a tendency to draw attention. Furthermore, the colors of the tv doesn’t usually compliment to colors of interiors. By choosing the right fabric you can kill two birds with one stone.

6. Art

Hanging art on your walls doesn’t have to be expensive and can really make your interior pop. Two important things to focus on when hanging art are size and color. Measure your space and measure your art to make sure that there is enough open space around each piece to let it shine and to not feel cluttered. Furthermore, make sure the color of the art compliments the colors of the room.

7. Mirrors

Mirrors can be used to make a small space feel larger. Secondly, mirrors placed directly across from windows can help bring in more natural light. This is particularly helpful in a room that doesn’t have many windows.  Decorative mirrors can also be used in lieu of art to fill empty wall space. Large or small, mirrors add light and dimension to your living space.

8. Rugs on wood floors

Rugs are a great way to life to wood floors. When employing rugs size is an important factor, a rug should be big enough so that every piece of furniture has at least two feet on it. If you use a rug that is too small, it can make your space feel uncomfortable. On the other hand, if its too large the space can feel claustrophobic. So take these things into consideration.

9. The Golden Ratio

In mathematics, two quantities are in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. Interior designers often use it to ensure that the placement of objects in a room are balanced. One way to use it is to divide a space into approximately two-thirds for one section and one third for the remainder. For instance, if two thirds of the space on a floor is occupied then you should fill up one third of the space on the wall.

10. Use colors properly

The color wheel is an interior design essential. It can help you to plan your color pairings or guide you out of a design rut when you’re struggling for inspiration. Use it to help you come up with complementary schemes. This means using colors from opposite sides of the wheel.
