How To Make Your Room Appear Big

Today, getting a spacious apartment in your desired budget is a difficult task. We have to compromise either with money or space to get the desired one. Thus this is a common problem that most of the young men and women in India today face at some point in their lives. 

Here are some easy ways which will make any small room appear more bigger & modern at the same time -

1.  No shady colours, only shades of white: Use a light colour on walls, so when the light reflects it will make your room bigger. Also use a light colour flooring to make it more airy and cool. Paint or opt for a wallpaper on the ceiling to make the room look spacious.

2.  Use table clocks instead of wall clocks: Hanging wall clocks tend to make a room look smaller as they occupy the space on the wall & are right in your face. Hence, a table clock which in some corner does not take any visual space & makes the room appear big. Such table alarm clocks also serve the purpose of showing time & entertaining with radio.
