One easy way to give a “space” feel to your room is making use of furniture, such as arm chairs and sofas, that are raised on legs. Raised furniture allows for easier movement of light into the room. This effectively creates an illusion of having more space.
The use of transparent furniture like glass tables and plastic chairs, is another great way to make your room look spacious. Furniture pieces that are transparent allows you to see the walls and floor, giving the illusion of more space than there actually is. Where as, opaque furniture, completely blocks off space from view, giving your room the illusion of being smaller than it actually is.
