8 Ways to create the illusion of more space

1: High Lighting Featureand light ceilings

They fool the eye and make the space appear much larger.

Also cabinetry that doesn’t go all the way up to the ceiling will create a more spacious look because of the openness between the unit and ceiling.


2: Uniform flooring

continuous flooring makes rooms look far more spacious. Don’t break up your floor plan, especially not in open plan living spaces.  Also, avoid most patterned carpets and rugs (although stripes that run vertically through the room can make the room feel longer).

3: Choose a Monochrome colour palette

These are peaceful and your eyes can go through rooms without any interruption. It works subtle and appealing, more expensive. If you want to bring attention or attraction to a certain area, through a single splash of colour in.
