Natural light will immediately make a room appear larger, but if your room doesn't have windows, or has fairly small windows, there are other things you can do. You can make a room seem larger by drawing people's gaze upwards, as when the eye moves vertically, rather than horizontally, rooms seem larger. Try placing light fittings higher up on your walls, or perhaps try adding some hanging lights from your ceiling.Recessed lighting can have a similar effect, with lights set into the ceiling or wall. These lights won't take up any additional space in your room, but will make it feel brighter and more open.
For many homeowners, a common issue they may be faced with is how to decorate a small room to make it feel as large and open as possible. While you may not be able to change the actual size of the room – you can't magically pull more space out of thin air / there are a number of things you can do to make the room look and feel larger. One of the easiest ways to make your room feel as large as possible is by making some smart changes to your lighting.
