How to use wallpaper to enlarge a small room?

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

Isidore Leroy is a brand specializing in high-end wallpapers for over 150 years. Their unique designs and attention to detail make Isidore Leroy decorations an ideal choice for enlarging a small room.

Here are some tips for enlarging a small room with Isidore Leroy wallpaper:

Choose a pattern that creates an impression of depth
Wallpapers with a perspective, such as landscape designs or 3D geometric patterns, can give the illusion that the room is larger than it actually is. Cascading floral patterns can also give a sense of depth by creating an illusion of distance.

Notable models include "Rivière des parfums" and "Port-Cros", which depict extensive landscapes and effectively create this impression of depth.

Use light colors
Light colors can give the illusion that the room is larger than it actually is. They reflect light, making the room brighter and more spacious. Pastel tones like powder pink, sky blue, or mint green are excellent choices for enlarging spaces.

Wallpapers come in many colors, so we recommend choosing the colors carefully according to the needs of your project.

Apply wallpaper to a single wall
If you don't want to cover all the walls with wallpaper, you can simply apply it to 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 actually is.

Use simple patterns
Simple patterns like vertical stripes can help elongate the room and create an impression of height. Simple patterns can also make the room more elegant and sophisticated. Models with elegant patterns like "Théodore" or "Eugénie" will enhance the depth of your space while maintaining a sober atmosphere.

Play with textures
By using different textures, you can create a sense of depth in the room. Textured wallpapers, such as those with reliefs or embossed patterns, can create a shadow and light effect that makes the room appear larger than it actually is. Some of our models like "Reflets d’Ossau" or "Campagne," which play on textures and shadows, allow you to enrich the "landscape" of your room.
