Handy Tips to Bring Out the Luxury in a Small Living Room
In the master magic saga of Harry Potter that JK Rowling spun with her words of wisdom, there was a thing called the expansion charm. While the undetectable version of it was used by Hermione Granger to transform her tiny bead bag into a full-fledged luggage affair that could be carried anywhere, it was used to expand the tiny tent of Perkins into a spacious three-bedroom affair. Well, as much as we craved for that and every other piece of magic from the series, reality deems it impossible.
We live in the era where real estate prices keep on climbing the charts whilst earnings don’t quite rise in the same proportion. We end up living in small spaces, but they too are beautiful in their own way. In fact, if we invest a little money and a lot of heart in the spaces we own as homes, we can make the most of it and make it luxurious enough. You ask how? Read on for we are going to take you on a ride wherein you’d learn exactly that.
Make sure that your walls and your curtains are of the same colour or similar shades. The two would blend, giving your room a spacious feel.
White is the Key
White and other lighter pastel shades always exude the quality of light and space. If you are not the one who is skeptical to the colour, go for it. However, be careful while choosing your white and even blending it with the rest of the décor. It is a tricky shade to deal with. Make sure your home doesn’t end up looking bland.

Don’t Stuff the Shelves
If you are someone who loves to read and flaunt the books as well, chances are you would have shelves filled with books, and some other random clutter. The best thing you can do to expand your space is by decluttering the shelves. Keep minimal stuff there and do not overdo it.
Uncover the Floor
Well, not literally. But what you can do is choose the type of furniture which would not touch the floor directly and would rather have legs that leave space for air to flow beneath it. Freer floor actually gives an airy feel to the room and gives the illusion of maximum space.
Cook up the Corners
Make use of the corners of the room by placing tall shelves or tall pieces of furniture there. The same goes for paintings. For the illusion of space, it is best if paintings are hung near the corners of the room.
