Whether in a remodel or in the construction
of a tightly-budgeted
new home, there are many times we
would like to make a tight space feel
larger than it really is. One good way is
the careful use of room dividers.
Further dividing already cramped
quarters might seem counterproductive,
but when done properly it works.
Japanese gardens are a good example.
Walking through a Japanese garden, you
can never see all of the garden at once.
You are continually walking around a
corner of a hedge or garden wall and discovering
another little scene. If you have
the opportunity, spend an hour in one
of these gardens and then measure the
actual size. You will be surprised
