    How do I disguise an awkward space without blocking light?

    Use a decorative fretwork panel to camouflage a small or internal window, or to screen off private living areas. Not only will it diffuse light, it can cast beautiful shadows, too. Make a statement with intense paint colours, or keep it subtle using a softer palette.

    Top tip: On an intricate piece, use a spray gun for a perfect finish.
