Optical illusions: how to make your spaces look wider
Today is the last day of the mirror month. I already know that I’ll miss it.
But tomorrow is a new day, a new month, and it’s time for another theme.
Change is always difficult. I remember when I moved to Milan and, in one fell swoop, I went from an house with a garden, a dog, a cat and a turtle to a 30 square meters apartment with a traffic view. It was so small that if you turned 360 degrees, you could see it all. However, I also remember that I lived well. Everything was under my nose, and I took under an hour to clean it.
It’s an old cliché. But in the end, it’s true that size doesn’t matter (at least not always). Home is where you can find the balance, where you forget the problems, where you relax. It’s not a simple matter of square meters. The truth is that 70sqm well managed are better than 110sqm badly distributed.
Today I propose you a small – but very clever – apartment. 47sqm in pure black and white style really well managed. The space in fact seems wider for these two reasons:
- The white colour, which reigns supreme in furniture, on doors and windows and even in the floor, gives light to the environments widening the space.
- The wardrobe with mirror doors positioned in the corridor gives depth to the living area, catches the light and helps to make the environment even brighter.
Two arrangements that are always good if you want to make wider and airy a mini-apartment. Two little tricks that can transform a space from “I wouldn’t live here” to “I might move in here right now”. See for yourself.
