Pick a stylish mirror for your living room. The reflection of a mirror makes a room look bigger. Hang a mirror above the fireplace or sofa.
Choose a light color scheme to open up the room. If you are worried about little finger prints on the wall, consider a pastel color or light cream instead of a true white.
Choose furniture with lifted legs. Furniture that is lifted extends the room and makes it appear bigger and more airy.
Lighting changes the mood of a room almost instantly. If you have access to natural light- use it! Keep curtains back and windows open.
If you don't have much natural light, look into light fixtures. Spread lighting throughout the living room to brighten the space and make it look bigger.
The less stuff in your living room, the bigger it looks. Go through your decor, magazines, and knick knacks until all you have left is the essentials.
Keep carpets clear and clean. Make sure to vacuum regularly. If you have any carpet stains, call Chem-Dry of Napa Valley to remove them. A carpet or rug that is clean looks bigger than a room broken up by spots.
