Here are a few more simple ideas that will allow you to create a roomier and more cohesive living or office space
Learn how to use lines
Whether it is horizontal, vertical or even diagonal, the humble line goes far in stretching, widening and lengthening a room every time it is used strategically!
The vertical line
In this Zen style living room, the strong use of horizontal lines as well as a paired back minimalist touch has truly produced a restful and calming effect. If you would like to widen the space and reduce a narrow tunnel effect then integrate low and horizontal furniture and shelving.
The diagonal line
The proper use of mirrors
In this compact multifunctional kid zone, clean lines and right angles contribute to a sense of order and calm and communicate that there is sufficient space and no obstacles to navigate around.
Almost everybody has to make a little go a long way. Hopefully these tips will have given you new ways of making your small space seem much more spacious and structured.
