You can easily make a room larger with the help of the sun. Use to the maximum   the benefits of any natural light that is available to you. Open up the windows and remove any existing heavy draperies and curtains. Thus, the room will have a light space as you eliminate the shadows.

Light alone will not do the trick, so you need to use other tricks as well. Light will be better reflected with the use of light colors, thus, decorate your rooms for instance with icy blues and cool creams. Usually, a bright room seems a lot larger than it is in reality. The key is finding the right balance between light and perfect colors.

You should also try to match the interior colors with the exterior ones. Thus, if a window of yours has a nice view to some green bushes, you could use airy blue and pale green colors in the room. The space will look larger by ingeniously joining the interior with the exterior.

Artificial lights have an important role as well. Get rid of those shadows and open up the room by using recessed lights, uplights and tracked lights.

Mirrors

Mirrors are a lifesaver as the room will look larger with them. The room seems brighter as the mirror reflects any existing light. You can create a sense of space by having a mirror close to the window which to reflect the outdoor view.
