If you have a room or hallway that always feels dark, you might be looking for a way to brighten things up a bit. Even on the sunniest days, the lack of windows—or a small or narrow space in your home can look brighter with the tips below.
Add A Mirror
The fastest way to make a small room feel larger, or a dark room look brighter is to add a medium or large mirror to the wall opposite the window. If your dark space is a hallway, add a series of small mirrors. If it fits your design aesthetic, add reflective accessories throughout the room.
Add A Skylight Or Window
If you own your home, have a window installation team come over to discuss the possibility of adding a strategically placed window or skylight. Or maybe enlarging your current window.
Keep The Paint And Décor Light
If a room is dark, opt for light colored wall coverings. Also, avoid the temptation to use dark colors when decorating. Instead, opt for white and neutrals. Add color with your smaller accessories.
Last but not least, add more light fixtures to your dark rooms or narrow hallways. This could include track lighting, or lamps.
Just a few small adjustments can go a long way in brightening up any room in your home!
