The light coloured wall does nothing?

4 flooring tricks to make a room look bigger

Here are some flooring tricks that you should know:

Choose planks instead of strips – Planks are bigger thus they offer fewer seams. Fewer seams create a more open pattern that looks less busy and confining. Also, lay the board parallel to the longest wall. This will help elongates the room.

Lay flooring diagonally – This will make your room look bigger. Plus, it fools the eye into seeing the flooring pattern differently creating a more unique and interesting visual effect.

Go for a dark wood – Dark wood doesn’t constrict spaces. When paired with the right combination of wall colour and furniture, they can make your room appear bigger.

Keep consistency – When joining adjacent spaces, use the same type of flooring. If you have a consistent design throughout your home, you will create the illusion of having more space. In case you need to change your flooring material, make sure you choose a colour of the same shade.

You cannot increase the size of your room but yes, you can create more space with a few flooring tricks. Also remember to declutter, less is definitely more.
