Fake it! How to make windows look bigger.

Whether you are a weekend DIY warrior or a design professional, you know that sometimes the secret is just to fake it till you make it. Making windows look bigger is no exception.

Hang your curtains wide and to the floor. This will continue the illusion of taller ceilings and bigger windows.
