Cut Back on Clutter
Living in a small space doesn't mean that you have to give up comfort and design. You can still create a nice feel and appearance in your living space, even with lots of day-to-day necessities. Knowing some of the tricks of the trade can make it easier for you to create the illusion of a larger space. Read on for top secrets that you and your family can employ to help make even the smallest spaces feel roomier.
Having extra clutter around the house can cause a small space to feel even smaller. You can prevent pile ups by first sifting through your mail, before it even enters your house. Avoid clutter piles by disposing of junk mail, newspapers, and magazines promptly when you are done with them. Afer tackling the mail, go through your house and get together all the things that you really don't have a use for (old clothes, books you've finished reading, furniture that just isn't functional anymore, and so on) and hold a yard sale or give the items away to charity.
