5 Tips For Fooling The Eye and Making a Room Look Bigger

5 Tips For Fooling The Eye and Making a Room Look Bigger
At times, smaller rooms can feel confining, uncomfortable and rather uninviting. However, lucky for you, we have cracked certain design concepts that can fool the eye, making a space look much more spacious than it actually is. 

Here are 5 quick and clever tricks that will inspire you!

2. Lighting

Allowing natural light inside the room is a quick and easy trick to make your space look larger. If natural light is unavailable, you can add some creative effects using artificial lighting fixtures. Believe us, you will be surprised!

However, if you do have access to natural light, the idea is to make the most of it through large windows, preferably facing towards a garden or by adding plants and flowers near the windows to make the space look happy and colourful.

3. Cut the clutter

Keep your room tidy and organised. Cramping up a small space by overcrowding it with furniture or decoration pieces can make it look busy and messy. Avoid unnecessary objects, focus on more floor space and create one focal point. Keep it minimalistic, classy and spacious!

4. Mirrors can do wonders

5. Place your furniture right

In a smaller space, avoid unnecessary furniture as it can take up a lot of space. Alternatively, use multi-functional furniture, such as a chest that can be used as a coffee table, a sofa bed or a bed with drawers for storage underneath.

Place larger pieces of furniture against the walls, use shorter furniture that doesn't make the ceiling look to low and maximise the open space. Scale your furniture to fit the size of the room, and don’t block pathways.
