Sadly, we can’t move walls with a wave of our hands. But we can use optical illusions to make even a small room look bigger than it actually is.
A colourful floor in a bright room will move the walls further apart and make them look higher and wider.
If you use a bright, rich colour on the ceiling as well as the floor, this will make the room seem wider, but will also make the ceiling seem lower.
Painting the back wall and the floor in the same colour will make the room seem airier.
Painting the back wall and the floor in the same colour will make the room seem wider, but will also make the ceiling seem lower.
You can visually extend the side walls by reducing the depth of the room, to do this, you just need to use colour to highlight the far wall.
The opposite also holds true, you can reduce width and increase depth if you paint the side walls.
If low ceilings are a problem, it can help to use coloured side and far walls. This visually reduces the depth and width of the room and gives it the appearance of more height.
You can visually increase the space in a room, not just with the help of colour, but also by using pictures. To make a room seem more spacious, use light wallpaper with small patterns.
If a room has ceilings which are excessively high then horizontal stripes will make them seem lower and reduce the height somewhat.
Vertical stripes, on the other hand, will raise low ceilings.
If you need to make a room wider and reduce its depth, then using horizontal stripes on the floor will help to achieve the desired effect.
