This may speak for itself, but unconsciously we make interior choices that often make a room look smaller. If you want a house that looks spacious, don't clutter up the space, go for light colors and opt for elements with round shapes. Furthermore, enough storage space is essential, for example you can have cabinets built up to the ceiling to make optimal use of the space. When arranging small spaces , think preferably in height and not in width.
We may be kicking in an open door, but make sure you clean up regularly. Thoroughly go through all the stuff and be critical.

An additional advantage of tidying up is that more space is created in your home and head.
