Textures and light
Layers of textures elegantly add depth to a room without decreasing the room size visually. When used in moderation, decorative accessories, particular textiles in light colors, make the interior design look complete, comfortable, and inviting. Glossy textures and large mirrors which reflect light inside the room create a pleasant optical illusion of welcoming spaciousness and depth.
Size, shapes, patterns
A few small furniture pieces or one large item featuring a sleek design, decorative accessories in light colors with contrasting details, and space-saving ideas are perfect for furnishing small rooms. Light visual weight is an excellent tool for creating an airy and breezy interior design. Large mirrors are another essential element for adding depth to the interior design.
Smooth surfaces, floating designs, clean lines, simple geometric shapes, decoration patterns with little linear details help to simplify a room. Plenty of natural light, bright lighting fixtures, and light contrasts help create depth in small rooms and keep home interiors spacious and comfortable.
