Invest in Double Duty Furnishing

When you are tight on budget and have a small space, double duty furnishing is just the right option.

For instance, you can shop for ottomans that feature built-in storage space. Folded up, Murphy beds fit inside a cabinet and pocket in the closet. No hinge at the center means a noise-free and restful sleep.

Fortunately, there is a wide range of stylish double-duty furniture available on the market. You can choose multi-tiered occasional tables, a beautiful bed with storage underneath, convertible sofas, and more.

Create an Illusion of Higher Ceilings

Window treatment is an inexpensive way to add a complimentary fabric to your existing panels. Raise your window treatments to make your ceiling feel high and give it a grand feel.

Also, painting your ceiling, all-white visually raises its height. Alternatively, you can choose a color that is lighter than the color of your walls.

Make sure you use the high-gloss finish for the ceiling. As the light reflects a glossy ceiling, it will appear heightens, thus brightening the entire room.
