Have you ever thought of ways to create a larger looking and more elegant home without spending extra money? Perhaps adding a touch of style and sophistication to that narrow bathroom or even brighten that dreary corner area of your living room? Well, the homify team consulted some interior designers for 6 décor secrets that can instantly upgrade your home, and better still… you aren’t paying for the advice! Let’s take a look for some inspiring ideas and details.

1. Mirror magic

Playing with the location of mirrors can quickly enhance the illusion of more space in a home, especially in a compact environment. Consider a mirrored wall to obtain the optimum effect of elegance and illumination.

2. Lighter flooring for brighter ambiance

Choose lighter wooden planks or tiles to accentuate the brightness of a room and enjoy a fresh and sophisticated space.

3. Colourful accents

Another awesome trick to enlarge the look of a petite living space or dining room is to opt for an accent wall. A bright or vibrant colour along with all-white or lighter shades will create the perception of a spacious modern home.

4. Increase ceiling height

You think your attic ceiling is a bit too close for comfort, draw your gaze upwards with some vertical stripes for that antique design that creates an illusion of a higher ceiling too. How smart is that?

5. Cheerful colours for a cheery mood

It’s amazing what effect colour can have on the mood, so if you find yourself regularly depressed, chances are that your mood is just in a funk and you’ll need to reconsider that dull grey tone of your bedroom. Go for a vivid shade of turquoise to quickly uplift you’re anxious state.

6. The wonder of wallpaper
