Transparent furniture removes the visual barrier of being see-through and gives a feeling of openness. Try to use lucite tables and chairs to make your small room feel bigger.
Proper lights are essential for all size rooms and it even matters more for small rooms. Natural light is the best source. Natural light opens the space and makes a room look bigger.
If you have windows in your room remove the window blinders during day time to allow natural light. If you don’t have one, don’t be discouraged. Use proper artificial lights. Use multiple lamps instead of one so that light spreads equally in all directions.
Use cool lights instead warm lights. Also, use some decoration lamps.
Skip The Curtains
If you have a window in your room, you can skip the curtains. This will allow the flow of natural light and also remove the visual barrier by removing the limit to outdoors.
Not all walls need to be covered with artwork. It will take up space and make a small room look even smaller.
Use one large artwork instead of many small ones on your wall. A large one is better than many small artworks for a small room.
Do mirrors make your room look bigger? The answer is “Yes”. They not only reflect light but also make it look bigger by reflecting the same space. Mirrors reflect both natural and artificial light and make the room brighter during the day and night.
Hang a large mirror on the wall or place it against the wall. The room and light will be reflected and give a more open feeling. You can also use mirrored cabinets or furniture.
