Downsize: Large furniture or fixtures in a small room will only serve to emphasize space constraints. Luckily there is an endless array of furnishing options available. For example an oversized vanity could be replaced with a pedestal sink in a crowded bathroom. A room-consuming bed could be lofted to allow additional storage space in a child’s crowded bedroom.
Cut Out Diversions: Things that literally stick out in your room will draw the eye of the viewer, creating a shrinking effect on your space. To avoid this phenomenon, remove any large wall racks or furniture that juts out from the natural lines of the room.
