How to Create the Illusion of Space Within Your Home

There are many ways one can create the illusion of space within your home, utilising the mirrored wardrobe doors we offer at MDC (Mirror Door Company) can help to provide depth to the room, and our bespoke storage can also help to declutter your home making rooms appear more spacious. The following should help you with making those smaller rooms in your home feel spacious!

Mirrored Doors and Mirrored Wardrobe Doors to Reflect Space

Of course, it is common knowledge mirrors reflect light so the placement of your mirrored doors, and mirrored wardrobe doors is vital for transforming your room into a light haven. The first way one can utilise mirrors accordingly is by situating them on opposite sides of the room to extend the appearance of the length of the room. However, it is important to note placing them directly opposite rather than just skewed or parallel can create a jarring effect and make your space feel chaotic rather than peacefully spacious. Another way of employing mirrored wardrobe doors to increase the scope of the room is placing them in darker corners of the room so that the natural light may be extended further in the room, this is perfect for rooms which are inclusive of only smaller windows. If one doesn’t have the privilege of windows within the room, employing the same technique yet placing the mirrored doors via a lamp can have a very similar effect.

Making use of your Bespoke Storage

To declutter a room has been said to declutter the mind! Using this philosophy, placing items which can have an overcrowded and overwhelming feel to a room within bespoke storage can achieve the illusion of extended space. The key to keeping the illusion of space is taking a minimalist approach and asking yourself questions such as: ‘Do these items need to be on display?’, ‘Do I need constant access to these items?’ and ‘Is this piece of furniture a necessity in your room?’. Asking yourself questions like this helps you to realise what you truly need and what isn’t necessary. By using the bespoke storage which we offer, we can help you make the best use of the space within your room to find the balance between maintaining the illusion of space and providing practical storage for all your worldly possessions! Please feel free to check out our recent furniture projects for how we achieve this.
