VB.net TreeView checkboxes too close to node image


I have TreeView in my VB.net project where I set the CheckBoxes to True to facilitate the selection of multiple
nodes. As shown in the image the checkboxes are too close to the node images. How can I space them out a little more?

as far as I know there is no possibility to configure the distance of the checkboxes in Windows Forms. You only have two possibilities: If you use WPF instead you can create controls on your own by assembling the elements, but that would mean to redesign the complete application and a lot of additional programming to create the TreeView logic on your own.
Another workaround could be to redesign your icons so that the graphic itself contains enough free space that it would look like as if the checkboxes would have more space between them and the icon.
