How to make window look symmetric after adding buttons to taskbar?

I have QMainWindow and I want to populate statusbar with buttons.

I achieve this by using the code:

QWidget *widget = new QWidget();
QPushButton *leftBut = new QPushButton("left");
QPushButton *rightBut = new QPushButton("right");
QHBoxLayout *layout = new QHBoxLayout(widget);
layout->addWidget(leftBut, 1, 0);
layout->addWidget(rightBut, 1, 0);

so, I have this: MainWindow with buttons in statusbar

But you can see that right border of layout are far from window corner, not like on the left side.

What I want is to make window look symmetric (move right border right or make borders invisible or something else).

What was needed is this string after those code that I wrote in question:


In some reason statusbar contains "size grip" that is situated in bottom-right corner of statusbar and is enabled by default. That wast the thing that prevent widget to fill whole space.
