The space of any given room is only as good as how it’s being used; no matter the size of the environment, optimizing and maximizing the space to its full potential is what’s most important.
Here are some considerations which can help add more depth to your space:

‘Mirror Mirror on the Wall

One of the best, least expensive ways to decorate small rooms and create the illusion of more space is with the use of a mirror.

A decorative mirror, especially a large wall mirror, will act as a room expander when strategically placed to reflect light or an attractive element in the room. Such as a window with a scenic view, a doorway into another room, a fireplace, or artwork.

A lighted mirror will add warmth and depth to a small room with otherwise subdued lighting. A large mirror on the long wall of a narrow room will make the room appear wider.

Wall Colors for Small Room Design

Color is important for any room, but especially for small rooms.

One color idea for small rooms is to add depth using solid colors. Using one color for the wall of one room, and another for the door opening and walls in the next room to accentuate and define the space.

Separating the walls of a small room into blocks of color can also add visual depth. Use gentle tones of color in layers. If you want to keep wall colors neutral, select an accent color and layer it throughout the room with accessories to brighten up the room and bring it depth.

Continuing a single color theme in two connecting rooms is a good way to help dissolve the lines between the two rooms and open them up to each other. This technique is only effective, however, when used for adjoining rooms that fall in the same line of sight.

Neutral, light shades and bright colors work best; avoid dark colors. Avoid patterned wallpaper, which has the tendency to overpower small spaces.’  (source: trustedpros.com)
