We know it can get pretty frustrating when you've got all these grand redecorating plans but you don't really have a space any bigger than your bedroom. But don't let your cozy box of a room cramp your style. Here are 3 tips to help expand your space without having to break down the walls.

Go light and monochromatic.
Light colors and a having the same scheme from floor-to-wall gives the illusion of a bigger space. Your space will seem more open and airy.

Space everything out.
Refrain from cramping up your already tiny space. Instead, go for smaller furniture and try not to keep them too close together. Look into double-duty space savers, too, like an ottoman that's has a hidden compartment. Less clutter, more space for you to move in!

Use mirrors.
