Interior Design Tricks – Tuesday


If your ceilings are on the low side, paint them a shade of white to make the room feel less claustrophobic.

Hanging draperies higher than the windows, to trick your eye into thinking the room is taller. Most standard curtain panels measure 84 or 96 inches, allowing you to go about 3 inches above the window casing before the length gets too short. If you want to hang them higher, you’ll have to order custom drapes.
Love patterned panels? Use vertical stripes; they visually elongate your walls. Other tricks to try, leaning a large mirror against a wall can make a room seem taller.
