1. Use a neutral color palette. Calming colors are easy on the eyes; opt for light-colored furniture to make your space appear larger. 
2. Utilize vertical space. Add visual interest on walls, whether it's with art, shelving, or window treatments.
3. Think about scale. Choose furniture that's proportional to the room's size. An oversized sofa will overwhelm a small living room, instead try a loveseat.
4. Try multi-functional furniture. Use pieces that do double-duty, like a storage ottoman as a coffee table or a cocktail ottoman that works as seating, too.
5. Consider natural light. Install sheer, lightweight curtains to filter in soft, natural hues, or use mirrors to bounce light around the room.
