How to Make Your Rooms Look and Feel More Spacious

Looking for ways to make your space look and feel larger? 
Here are five easy changes you can make.
1.  Hang curtains higher and wider than your windows.  The eye will be drawn up and over and the windows and the room itself will look larger.
2.  Strategically place a large mirror in the room.  Mirrors reflect light and create the illusion of more space.  They are also good for checking your look before heading out the door.
