Posted by Paula Counsell
If you are looking to make your box bedroom look bigger or create the illusion of more space in your living room, a wall mural that extends the eye is a great way to make any small room look larger. Imagery that draws the eye outwards will create an optical illusion that makes the wall appear to stretch beyond the point that it actually does. It will capture the attention of everyone who enters your home and add life and depth to any room.
