Having a theme for the kitchen canmake it easier when it comes todecorating, so if it’s traditionalfarmhouse, finding furniture pieces andaccessories is a whole lot simpler. Then,of course, there’s the modernapproach, a Mediterranean spin orsomething a little more adventurous. As far as the kitchen is concerned,there’s no right or wrong way, blendingbrands and styles will still result insomething wonderful that the wholefamily want to spend time in.

One of the secrets of interior design ismaking maximum impact with minimal input and nowhere is this asnecessary than when it comes to the kind of rooms that are typicallyreferred to as shoeboxes. Light is the great redeemer and can trick the eye into thinking a spaceis that much bigger than it is. Using a wall-mounted mirror to catch thesunlight will illuminate any space and add to its depth. It’s a simple fixthat works as well in the bedroom as it does in the lounge. When itcomes to letting the light in, there’s no such thing as too many mirrors.Some smart furniture choices means packing in plenty without havingto compromise on space. This means opting for units with plentyshelves and drawers, combing storage, display and function in one. Colour can also make a room appear smaller, choosing lighter shadeswill create a breezy ambiance, making the whole space look and feelbigger. If it’s a bedroom, try using lighter materials for fixtures such ascurtains or even instead of doors on wardrobes. Or, if it’s a bathroom,getting rid of cabinet doors all together can create the illusion of spaceand openness. In the end it’s about trial and error, but experimenting with colour,furniture and light can make all the difference and suddenly the pokeyroom you’ve ignored all these years can be the best in the house. Doing a lotwith a little1Light, colour and furniture can all affect how largeor small a room looks, so taking the time to mixand match can make a small room seem bigger.
