Dark tones create the effect of a visual reduction in the room, so they are acceptable only for rooms with large dimensions. The wood color of the wardrobe is optimal. If the room is decorated in any design style, you must choose a product of the same style..

For the visual effect of enlarging the room, you need to pay attention to the front side of the cabinet, making it plain. Gloss or a mirror will do; the effect can be increased by placing furniture on the opposite side of the window. A mirrored facade in this design can be used for its intended purpose – like a mirror, this increases the functionality of the cabinet. A dimmable mirror is suitable for a bedroom and will give the setting originality, a touch of mystery.

The design of a corner cabinet with bright colors is a good solution for the interior of a child’s room. However, it is not recommended to use red, as it leads to increased agitation and nervousness, and can cause sleep disturbances. This is especially true in the case of placing a cabinet of this color near the bed. It is good to place white furniture near the bed, there it will well complement the design of the bedroom, which has a beneficial effect on the overall atmosphere.
