- Make Your Room Seem Larger: All it takes is a well-placed mirror to alter a room completely. Conversely, a series of smaller mirrors can make instantly transform a tiny room into a spacious space. In fact, it can be tons of fun to hunt around for antique mirrors at yard sales and flea markets, where you might just find yourself a bargain.

Mix And Match Your Furniture
Take a stock list of all your furnishings and try moving the smaller items to unexpected places. Consider bringing your bedside lamp into the kitchen for a much more inviting ambiance. Grab all of your random tchotchkes and put them in a pile. Then redistribute them. You’ll be shocked at how different they immediately look once you’ve moved them to an entirely different location. Sometimes, grouping items by color will help to achieve a more unified look. Although it sounds daunting, it is entirely possible to improve your apartment without forking over a lot of cash. You just have to be resourceful. Think outside the box a bit, and you’ll be able to create an inviting space for you to hang out with your friends.
