7. Bad Lighting
Wrong: Many rooms have only one type of light source and environmental center, which makes the space look smaller.
How to avoid: Choose two or three types of fixtures and distribute the space. The light will bounce on the walls and brighten even the darkest corners. If you do not have space for it, bet on mirrors that reflect the natural light in the environment.
