Illusion of more light

Letting in more light into your home isn’t just about creating the illusion of bigger spaces; it also has health benefits. Natural light helps the body produce more melatonin and serotonin. The former is a hormone that helps us regulate our digestion, body clock, and sleep patterns. The latter reduces depression symptoms which has become quite common since the pandemic first took over the world.

You can do this by choosing bright-colored furniture, using mirrors in your decoration, getting rid of curtains, increasing the number of light sources in the room, and by bringing in more greenery.

More space means a premium price and people are willing to pay extra for it. Smaller homes get more benefit from staging because the illusion of more space makes them bigger than it is by showcasing how much furniture and accessories can fit in them.

Some of the things you can do to achieve this are to make sure that the furniture you get is ideal sizes for the room. Keep sofas off the wall and add mirrors; strategically place them near a window to reflect the light and view outside. You can also make use of see-through furniture.
