Can’t decide on a piece of artwork? Try a mirror instead. You can find them in nearly any shape and size, whether you’d prefer a statement mirror or two matching ones that flank the mantel.

The teenager that lives in this South African home has an entertainment room that would make Tony Hawk proud. Inhouse Brand Architects outfitted the space with a concrete skate bowl, inspired by a skate park in London, according to Visi Magazine.

In addition to enlarging an area, a neutral palette imparts instant sophistication and creates a calming environment.
When you shop for furniture, consider its visual weight. This concept refers to the perceived heaviness of an object based on size, color and design. Pick out pieces that have a lightweight appearance, as heavier ones will seem to constrict a space for pale colors over darker ones, and select pieces that have legs while avoiding those that are boxy. Glass coffee or end tables will take up less visual space than wooden ones because you can see through them. Any furnishings that don’t obstruct views will make an area seem more open.
Another tip is to go with a shallower depth. Tight-back sofas and sectionals don’t have extra pillows and can be as shallow as 32 inches while still feeling as generous as a standard 40-inch-deep sofa. Going for a sectional 32 to 36 inches deep can help you open up more valuable square footage.The set consists of an armless chair, a corner chair and an ottoman; add any combination of modular units to make it as big as you need.
