    So, I just told you to go for higher walls, but that’s not the only trick you can use. A tiny bedroom can really use some light and bright colors, as they enhance our perception of space, “cheat” us into thinking that we’re not standing (or sitting) in a small space. On the other hand, darker tones close in on you. Next, use mirrors to visually expand your small bedroom.
