  1. To give the interior design depth and richness, pay attention not only to the shape but also to the texture of furniture and accessories: the glossy surface of the cabinets’ facades in combination with embossed parquet; silk and velvet on the pillows, pelts, leather – tactile sensations play a big role in creating coziness in the house.
  2. In rooms with low ceilings, use low furniture. This will add “airness” to the interior atmosphere.
  3. Using a podium in a small room will help to increase the actually exploited area.

  1. The perception of the interior is largely dependent on the lighting, so it is very important that it is organized correctly. Mirrors, glass doors, and light furniture will help strengthen the flow of natural light. As for artificial lighting – organize a multi-level system. A carefully thought-out lighting scenario is a characteristic feature of a quality interior. Use a variety of sources: ceiling, wall, and floor lights to provide full-fledged basic, functional, and decorative lighting.
  2. Use horizontal and vertical stripes in the design. They will help to visually change the geometry of the room. So, vertical stripes on the walls will “raise” the ceiling, and horizontal ones will “expand” space.

  1. The balance of color and size. Everyone knows this rule, but, nevertheless, it is often ignored. Dark and large objects “eat up” space, so small rooms need to be furnished with compact furniture on elegant legs. Massive, squat cabinet furniture, items of dark blue, pistachio, chocolate, graphite color will darken the atmosphere and strengthen the impression of cramp.
