Small spaces really benefit from good lighting, as it creates the appearance of the space being larger than it is. Layering the lighting is a great way to achieve this, as it creates a depth to the light rather than just illuminating from the top down. Hidden strip lights combine function with form, adding a soft glow while not taking up too much space.
Wall lights also add ambient lighting to a room without taking up floor or surface space. Position the wall lights higher than usual to draw the eye upwards and create the illusion of extra height.
Choosing low-profile ceiling or wall lamps, such as recessed lamps or track lighting, will ensure you can get an even spread of light without taking up too much space.
By making sure all of the corners of the room are lit, you can give the impression of space. If the corners of the room are in the dark, it will close the space in and make it appear smaller.
Finally, hang a mirror in the space to help reflect the light around the room and make it appear larger than it is.
