While living in an Austin apartment, it is common to want your space to appear larger. Although the modern apartments located at Farmhouse in South Austin are spacious already, there are creative ways to make them appear more expansive.

Light Colors

When considering ways to make your apartment look larger, one way instantly comes to mind - clear furnishings. For example, a clear coffee table offers functionality without much visual weight. Just the right Lucite furnishings will be hardly noticed in your roomy living space.

Unblock Windows
