Most people have an inclination towards designing homes or apartments with space in mind, but recent research has shown that this may be linked to a deeper, psychological habit.

Dylan Kendall, the chief creative officer of Dylan Kendall LLC, writes in the Huffington Post that smaller spaces and discordant colors in a room can actually make people uncomfortable. A liberating and happy feeling can be achieved just by being in a larger, more aesthetically pleasing room.

While interior designers have known about this secret for some time, Kendall claims that neurologists and psychologists are now finding evidence that these spaces can have significant effects on our brain.

The findings are slowly proving that light, color, and the shape of furniture can all come together to create a pervasive mood in the human psyche, both consciously and unconsciously. A cramped, gray-colored room will have a much more negative effect than a wide open space.

Vertical shades are one way to make areas seem larger. They can effectively hang from sliding glass doors and other entrances to create the feeling of privacy and personal space. They are also a beautiful way to divide the outdoor porch from inside the home, when one may wish to block the view.
