Luckily, there are a few simple tricks that maximize every square foot of your villa or office:

1. Soft wall colors and comfortable furniture are simple solutions to create the illusion of expansive space for smaller rooms.

2. When you’re short on square footage, consider using floor length curtains. Even on small windows the right curtains will lend the the illusion of height.


3. Decorative wall mirrors not only make your room look and feel more expensive, but they also improve your natural lighting when placed opposite a window.
