Illusory Effects for the Home


When it comes to making the most of your home’s proportions it’s all about visual trickery says the Evening Standard’s Jessica Doyle. She says: “The illusory effect of trompe l’oeil paintwork, tricking the eye with the impression of classical proportion or architectural detail is as useful today as it has been down the centuries – perhaps more so as we search for ways to increase the sense of space and add interest to modern interiors.”

According to Doyle, “when it comes to making a small space appear bigger, nothing beats the light-enhancing power of mirrors.” She advocates positioning mirrors on opposite walls so that they reflect each other: “You can create a fourth-dimensional effect of an infinitely reflected room, which can be quite exciting and fantastical, and really opens up the feel of the space.”

Futon Company says: When it comes to making the most of small spaces, Futon Company are the experts. Bringing furniture to the high street which makes the most of space saving living is our expertise.
