A small room is usually one of the most difficult places to design because of its limited space. Most often, small rooms in houses end up looking like a stock room, a messy bedroom or just a claustrophobic area you usually don`t want to be in.
Small rooms can be a great place to lounge or be in if designed properly. Here are 4 simple ways to help brighten and visually enlarge small rooms:

To help the room be visually bigger than it is, keep your furniture and other items in the room about the same color as your wall paint. If your items in the room blend in well with the walls, it will help keep the room visually pleasing. As much as possible, keep all your items monochromatic or achromatic so that there`s coherence in the overall look of the room.
3.) Open the Windows and Use Sheer or Light-Colored Curtains

A small room will look even better with the bright sun giving additional light to the room. The sunlight will make the room naturally brighter and fresher-looking during the day even with the lights off and the moonlight can dimly and beautifully light up your room at night.

When it comes to choosing curtains, light-colored curtains with vertical lines or folds are great because it can make the room visually spacious with its vertical form and pattern. Sheer curtains like sheer Roman shades are also great because you can add a little accent to the entire room through its color, pattern or design. You can use long sheer white curtains if you want to open the windows, subtly block insects, let the fresh air in, and let the daylight or moonlight illuminate the room.
4.) Always Keep the Room Clean and Organized

Having a clean and organized room is always pleasant. Even if the walls, furniture, curtains and other items are light-colored, the room will still feel claustrophobic and appalling if it`s messy and disorganized. Making sure that a small room is clean, organized and well-kept will help you feel more at ease lounging or doing work inside the room. This tip doesn`t only apply for small rooms, but it also applies to any type of surrounding.
Practical Tip: Having minimal furniture and items can help you to always keep the room looking clean and organized because you basically don`t have much to clean. It also helps you to maximize the use of the room and every item you have.
Light-colored walls, light-colored furniture and items, sheer curtains, and a clean and organized room that has a cohesive overall look can make any small room feel brighter, more refreshing and open, and visually bigger.
