|The same way that we might avoid a horizontal striped jumper as it makes us look bigger, these stripes can work the same way in a room to make it feel wider (this is not such a bad thing).
Instead of thin stripes a thicker stripe will give the same affect without making the space look busy, while drawing the eye along the wall to make it appear longer than it is.
Use the same stripes Vertically and watch the ceiling appear higher than it really is, again creating the feeling of space to make us look up when we enter the room.
You can achieve this with wallpaper, which is an easy and stylish option, or you can tape up the room to paint your feature stripes. Either way you will be amazed at the power that this simple trick can give a room. We have added some of our stipe inspiration (Images sourced from Pinterest).
