Do not exceed your spaces with furniture and accessories. Simplicity is not synonymous with a cold decoration, rather it is not cluttering a space with elements. Go for simple lines and designs. To take advantage of the space in your furniture, combine ornaments with a storage system to get the most out of it. 

 

2. Poor lighting

To give more space to your spaces, make sure to make the most of natural light. Dress the windows with light curtains and in light tones, that do not subtract the entrance of light. If you do not have large windows or natural light entrance, opt for artificial light points that allow you to give the spaces general, ambient and specific lighting. 

 

3. Failing to size the mat

The rugs help to give a unique and decorative touch to the spaces, as well as bring warmth to the home. It is important to choose the ideal size according to each space. A small rug will make the room look even smaller, and an oversized rug can take up too much space. Get the exact dimensions right in order to achieve the desired balance. 

 

4. Have dark walls

In small flats do not abuse dark and overly ornate walls. It is preferable to go from less to more, remember that dark colors subtract light from the space and will make it look smaller. On the other hand, with light colors you will achieve the opposite effect. If you really want a wall in dark colors, look to reserve it for those larger spaces in your house. 

 

5. Say NO to short curtains
