Enlarging a small room can seem like a difficult challenge. However, with a few decorating tricks, you can transform your space to make it seem larger. One of the simplest and most effective tricks is to use wallpaper to create the illusion of depth and space.

Here are some tips for enlarging a small room with Isidore Leroy wallpaper:
Choose a pattern that creates an impression of depth
Perspective wallpapers, such as landscape designs or 3D geometric patterns, can give the illusion that the room is larger than it really is. Cascading floral patterns can also give an impression of depth, creating an illusion of distance.
2. Use light colours
Light colours can give the illusion that the room is larger than it really is. This is because they reflect light, making the room brighter and more spacious. Pastel shades such as powder pink, sky blue or mint green are excellent choices for enlarging spaces.
Wallpaper comes in a wide range of colours, so we recommend that you choose carefully according to the needs of your project.
3. Hang wallpaper on one wall only
If you don't want to cover all the walls with wallpaper, you can simply hang the wallpaper on one wall. Choose a wall that catches the eye when you enter the room, such as the wall opposite the door or the wall with a window. This will create a focal point in the room, giving the impression that the room is larger than it really is.
4. Use simple patterns
Simple patterns such as vertical stripes can help to elongate the room and create a sense of height. Simple patterns can also make the room more elegant and sophisticated. Elegantly patterned designs such as "Théodore" or "Eugénie" will enhance the depth of your space while maintaining a sober ambience.
5. Play with textures
By using different textures, you can create an effect of depth in the room. Textured wallpapers, such as those with reliefs or raised patterns, can create an effect of light and shadow that makes the room seem larger than it really is. Some of our designs, such as "Reflets d'Ossau" or "Campagne", play on textures and shadows to enrich the "landscape" of your roo
