Lighter paint colors help make a room look larger, which include neutrals, pastels and different shades of white. To further create the illusion of more space, homeowners can incorporate light-colored furnishings as well.
Choosing interesting textures can help avoid making a neutral or light room look boring or plain. There are hundreds of pastel and neutral shades to incorporate into the room. This method also applies to the ceiling and floor. Having plenty of lighting in the room can also further open up the room. Another option is to reduce the number of accessories and individual pieces of furniture that are in the room.
