Paint is a quick and easy way to completely transform your home. You can create a lighter or darker impression instantly and there are seemingly endless opportunities when it comes to your colour options. Even a small and cramped room can be enlarged with the right painting techniques. Traditionally you can create an optical illusion of more space with lighter shades, whilst darker colours help to achieve accented effects.

Mirrors

With mirrors you can bounce daylight around your home, giving the impression of more space. This is easy enough to do as well, by simply placing a mirror on the other side of the room to where the light is flooding in. You can purchase decorative mirrors too to really brighten up the home, but ensure they’re placed in strategic locations.

Patterns

Wicker is an underused material in the home, but it really can be used to great effect. Wicker baskets are something you should invest in, with an excellent visual appeal whilst providing handy storage spaces. Smaller wicker baskets could be used in the kitchen to keep your fruit, whilst in the bedroom you may consider displaying your books, and in the bathroom your towels.
