Having high ceilings and having large windows are traditional ways of creating the illusion of larger spaces but not a lot of home owners know that nothing expands a homes space unlike a strategically placed mirror.

Placing a mirror in front of an entry way or a door is also a good idea if you want to give the illusion of more space.

Having reflective surfaces whether from your furniture or appliances allows light to bounce off of them and create larger spaces. It also makes a room less dull.

A house for three does not have to be extremely large. It just needs to utilize its space properly.
