How do you make a tight space feel airy? Easy. All you need is a little bit of creativity.

Some savvy space-savers are coming up with imaginative innovations like expandable walls that add to square-footage, or sliding pieces of furniture that fit into secret compartments in walls to minimalize their lives.
