Down the Line
Consider horizontal stripes, which make a room appear bigger the same way a striped garment can make the wearer look larger. Similarly, vertical stripes make a low ceiling seem taller.
A monochromatic colour scheme works extremely well in small spaces as it allows the eye to move easily around the room without obvious interruption by other colours.
This can alter your perception of dimension and can make an interior seem more spacious.
Another trick is to paint the walls and trims the same colour to make ceilings appear taller.
