Whether you are a homeowner looking to make the most of your space, or a home-seller wanting to show your home in its best light, employ tips to maximize your area.

There are numerous visual techniques you can employ to create the illusion of a more spacious environment. Smart placement of furniture, optimal lighting, and directing attention upward are some simple ways to enhance the space you have.

Here are some tips:
1.    Hang window curtains high to help elongate the walls visually.
2.    Choose light-colored bedding and a painting palette to enhance brightness.
3.    Opt for a tall headboard to add vertical emphasis.
4.    Select sconces instead of end tables with table lamps.
5.    Utilize long or oversized rugs to elongate the floor space.
6.    Choose furniture with legs to create a sense of openness.
7.    Lean a floor-standing mirror adjacent to a window to reflect light.
8.    Consider using mirrors as a background in alcoves to illuminate the space and add brightness.
9.    Match window treatments to your walls for a seamless look.
10.    Be mindful of the scale, ensuring furniture size complements the room dimensions (avoid using a King-sized bed in a small room, opt for tall dressers).

And one final note from a real-estate agent's perspective: De-Clutter, De-Clutter, De-Clutter. If you love collecting objects of meaning, confine it to one shelving unit or alcove, switching your items out seasonally for a fresh look. Have items you haven't used or touched in a year ? - consider donating to a local organization.

I personally find open spaces easier on my mind, almost relaxing.  Perhaps it's from my mother's upbringing, (and McDonald's once upon a time) "Clean as you go"

The end result can result in a more harmonious home atmosphere, and if selling your home - a quicker sale!
