Lack of space is a frequent problem today, and many homeowners are looking for ways to make their home feel bigger. We’ve gathered some common mistakes that you can make while decorating and that will make your space look smaller, let’s have a look what to avoid.

Extremely Large Sofas

Everyone loves large corner sofas that can accommodate all your friends who came to see you but remember that if your space isn’t an open layout one with enough space, such a sofa will make the room feel smaller.

Not Enough Light

Not having enough light will make any space look smaller than it is. To avoid it, use several layers of light: a chandelier, some lamps and lights, additional spot lights and maybe candles. If you don’t know how to add lights to achieve a harmonious look, try string lights – they match any interior, make it welcoming and inviting, and can be attached on any wall or hung as a curtain.
