Lifestyle Expert Chris Olsen shares a few tips for making a smaller room elegant, functional, and stylish.

1: Use a smaller rug and have two opposing couches. This way we create a nice little intimate sitting area that can fit four to six people.
2: Get a glass coffee table because it makes you room look bigger since you can see the floor through it. 3: If you are going to have a wood floor and you don't have carpet, use a lighter color floor, which makes the room look larger.
4: When it comes to your fireplace mantel, consider painting an accent wall in a different color.
5: Instead of just hanging a square mirror, use a round mirror because it takes away from all the angles.
