Reception number 1: mirrors

If you have got an apartment with many carrierscolumns on walls or right in the middle of the room, they can be "hidden" with the help of mirrors. Draw your ornament from mirrors, a kind of mosaic, and decorate the column with fragments with a facet. The glare of the bevel will dissolve the reflection of the interior of the room - and the columns will visually disappear.

Reception № 2: caissons with illumination

If your living room is long by main walls,for example, 2.5 x 4.3 meters, then such a room can be visually turned into a square. For this, too, there are several different techniques. For example, divide the ceiling into three parts and design caissons with illumination.

Reception number 3: moldings

If the height of the ceiling does not allow it to be lowered by 25-30 centimeters, then the same effect can be achieved with the help of a molding of gypsum or dyeropolymer moldings.

Reception number 4: gender

Experiment with the floor pattern, combine natural marble and a massive board.
