Cre­ate an il­lu­sion of space

Friday - - Living -

Place mir­rors on at least one wall; it will add a sense of space. Hang a large mir­ror across from a win­dow, so that it re­ceives nat­u­ral light and re­flects it back into the room.

Use Vene­tian or Ro­man blinds in­stead of cur­tains.

Keep rugs, throws and small ta­ble-top trin­kets to a min­i­mum.

Avoid chunky lights, in­stead use small ta­ble and stand­ing lamps or sleek hang­ing lights.

Keep walls un­clut­tered as much as pos­si­ble. Put up only one piece of wall art – a large pho­to­graph, poster, paint­ing or a col­lec­tion of four to six pho­tos framed in white.

How­ever, you can place float­ing shelves to store cu­rios and books.
