Today ,we will talk about those smart solutions that will make your home look bigger, more comfortable and chic. Some of these décor solutions are very simple to introduce. You may be surprised knowing some of these tricks – they are not at all rare, but are often overlooked.

1. Use of transparent or semi-transparent furniture

Transparent furniture made of glass or acrylic often makes your room feel bigger. If you are planning to decorate a delectable dining room, cosy living room or smart home office, it may be perfect time for you to order glass top tables or a set of acrylic chairs with matching table. As you can see in the image above, their presence gives the interiors a cool makeover.

2. Identify the focal point

Try to designate a visual hierarchy while designing a room. If in doubt, don’t feel shy of seeking suggestions from an expert interior designer. Identify the focal point and decorate it in style. Let the other parts of the room complement its décor instead of trying to grab the attention. This is a smart way of diverting the viewers’ attention from the cosiness of the room or problematic architectural features like beams on the ceiling or pillars in unwanted places.

3. Intriguing colour scheme

Don’t forget to plan an intriguing colour scheme. With the help of colours, you may make a room look bigger and brighter. Avoid busy motifs. It will make your rooms look clumsy. Choose colours like warm yellow, white, light grey or beige as a base tone and accentuate it with the introduction of a brighter shade like vermilion, lime green or tangerine. Choose shades that feel comfortable to you and help you design a cheery space.

4. Design a flowing space
