Trying to fit all your furniture in a small space may seem tedious and tiresome. Having to face a small and cramped room is an added worry. Here are some tips to make your room seem bigger than it actually is.
The reflection from the mirrors create the illusion of a bigger space. Not to forget, it adds more emphasis and make your room look a whole lot bigger.

Light and neutral colour palette
While dark colours give the feels of a cosy home, it absorbs light rather than reflect light, making the space feel smaller. On the other hand, a light and natural colour palette will expand your space visually.
Maximise natural light
By allowing natural light to enter your room, it opens up your space and creates a sense of depth in a small area. Natural lighting widens the look and feel of your space and instantly lifts the vibe of your home.
Paint or wallpaper the ceiling
By painting or decorating your ceiling with wallpaper, it draws people’s eyes upwards to make the room feel bigger.
