Nothing beats white when it comes to opening up a small space, according to Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

"Bathing your room in white creates an illusion of boundary-defying expansiveness. [The color] allows the eye to roam freely over surfaces, stopping only at points of contrast," the magazine reports.

White also creates a sense of spaciousness when it reflects from light sources around a room. The magazine recommends taking advantage of natural light by limiting window treatments in a small room to window blinds or shades only. Homeowners may want to consider choosing blinds that are the same color as the walls, which allows them to convey the impression of an unbroken surface.

Aluminum mini blinds have a simple design that fits any décor, and work well in a small space. They are easy to use, affordable and have the added benefit of reducing glare on TV and computer screens.


Even in a white room, bold color can play a role. The magazine recommends using contrasting colors to highlight a focal point wall that guides attention to it and away from the small dimensions of the room.
