Expose ceiling rafters and take advantage of attic space. Painting ceilings an ocean blue hue makes them appear higher.

See the Light
Abundant windows and glass-paned doors allow sunlight light to pour inside. The seamless transition between indoors and out makes the room appear larger. Open up a tight kitchen with floating shelves. While they won’t hide toasters and coffeemakers, they’re a sleek alternative to upper cabinetry, which often overwhelms a tiny space.
