Many rental properties are what we might call โ€œspatially challengedโ€ โ€“ that is, theyโ€™re small! Some studios or efficiency apartments are often little more than large closets. But, there are some clever techniques you can employ both to make the most of the space youโ€™ve got and to make it appear larger than it is.

De-cluttering is the first step, ridding yourself of things you no longer use or like. Fix a large, full-length mirror to a wall and choose furniture that opens out the space, such as armless chairs or couches. Light colors work best both on walls and in furnishings, while selecting a coffee table that can double up as a storage unit will save you space, and give your room a focal point.
