Everyone who lives in a city apartment can relate to living in small spaces. With rooms becoming smaller, who wouldn’t want their rooms to look bigger and more spacious? But achieving this can be challenging at times. Here I give 10 you easy, simple and efficient ways to make your room look bigger and better.

1.  Less is more

For your small space, be it your bedroom, bathroom or even a wardrobe, “Less is More” is the key mantra. Keep in mind to do away with all that is unnecessary or too many in your space.

The lesser number of items in the room will make it look more organized and in turn a lot more spacious.
