1. Be clever with lighting
Make dark corners look instantly bigger by directing light towards them. If you have dark modern items of furniture, you can make them work by teaming them with light walls and plenty of interior lighting. The right lights with dark items can actually create an overall feel of luxury and elegance.
2. Be storage savvy
Don't clutter your room with too much furniture as you'll shrink the space. Instead, invest in a wardrobe with clever storage spaces tucked away inside - from shoe racks to drawers with tiny compartments for ties.
3. Make a statement
If you're looking for new furniture, make your wardrobe the centrepiece of the room. Try picking something that stands out and makes a statement. Modern or vintage - go for something bold and work the room around that.
4. Work with the space around you
Not one for bold moves? Go for the more subtle sliding wardrobes - keep them simple and plain and it allows you to do more with the space around you (we're thinking bold, patterned wallpapers teamed with bright paints).
