Bonus Tip: Make Your Room More Excited With a  Printed Canvas!

The best way to make your room more exciting is by adding something you’re passionate about. Think about it, when you first meet someone you’re not quite sure of how you feel about them until you know what they’re passionate about.

That’s what makes them interesting, and the same applies to your room. Why not choose show your passion for a popular sports team, like the Toronto Raptors?

Employ hidden storage or multi-functional furniture

You can build a  window seat that can store all your TV components so that there would double seating place while enjoying a movie night with your friends. You can use lots of baskets for holding chew toys for your pets.  If everything you use can be tucked in a designated spot out of the way, you drop clutter and give the appearance of space.

Hang floor-to-ceiling raised curtains

If you have windows that don’t mean you should buy small length curtains, hang long curtains just below the ceiling that sweep all the way down to the floor.  Ceilings instantly look higher, and space appear bigger.

Choose Cool Wall Colors

We all know that white makes everything look bigger, but if you can't face up to such a cold, blank canvas, opt for light, soft colors.


The best option is to replace dark blues and grays with light green and blues to brighten up your living room and make it instantly feel more spacious. Also, to improve upon the best option you can add this funky printed minimalist canvas of a 1971 Mustang. The color of this simple but gracefully designed canvas can act to match or contrast the rest of your room to make it look bigger.

Well-placed mirrors can do wonders

Mirrors can make your room look larger. Utilize a focal point and angle your mirror toward it to give the illusion of wisdom. The mirrors hold the property to reflect both natural and artificial light that will make your room look brighter and bigger. The deep bounce of light into the room, make it look bigger.


The most  effective way to use mirrors is to set them up so they’re aiming at something exciting, that breaks the room and adds something different. A great example is this canvas print of the back of a mustang as it passes you, giving you an excited feeling of rush or adrenaline.

Wall lamps & bookshelves

Save floor and surface space by choosing a wall-mounted lamp, rather than a floor or tables-standing. You can also try mounted shelves instead of bookcases to give yourself more room underneath to utilize as storage space.

Be a Minimalist on the Walls


If you have a small room and you want to decorate your walls without getting an overloaded look, opt for one large piece of art or a wall accent instead of a gallery wall of smaller items.  This bright, simple, yet beautifully minimalistic canvas of the Ford GT40 does that perfectly. It’s simple design makes you focus on the center, looking at the car, which makes the borders of the canvas seem bigger, and therefore your room as well. And this is how you can make your living room look bigger and brighter.
