If you’re blessed enough to have a home in which every home is exposed to natural light, you’re pretty lucky! Because no matter what, every home at least has that one room which even in broad daylight is dark! Want to level up and bring this room at par with the rest of your home?
Here are a few tips and tricks to do it!
Bright, light colors:
For such rooms, don’t opt for darker shades and tones. Instead, use light pastel shades to make the room look huge, airy, and bright. The best color which actually works to brighten up rooms is white – just whitewash those walls and watch how brighter the room looks!
Bring in the mirrors:
After you’re done painting the room in a lighter shade, then come in the mirrors – the mirrors won’t be of any use if you’ve painted the room in a dark tone. Light bounces off much better in light-colored rooms – so bring in the mirrors later and place them in strategic corners to make the room look not only bigger but also brighter.
Darker furniture and accessories:
Bringing in darker accessories and furniture will give your light-colored room an altogether different dimension. Make sure you don’t go overboard with the dark tones – you will lose the element of bright – pop in the darker accessories in the right amounts, and you’re good to go!
Bright drapes and cushions:
These always work – plus they look really cool! Yellows, bright pinks, turquoise, orange – these are the shades which will lift the overall look of your room – making it look really great. Bring in these elements in the form of curtains, cushions, table cloths – even tea-cups and others such tiny accessories will work the wonder.
Light up the room:
The lights in your room will do the trick too – change the lighting system of your room and watch the room flooded with brightness. Opt for bulbs which give a daylight tone, so that you can use them even in the day. Also, keep in mind the lights shouldn’t be really bright – you don’t want it to be blaring in your eyes! Keep the lights lighter, just enough to make your room look lively.
Strike the right balance:
Don’t go overboard with anything – keep the palette bright and natural-looking – not forced. In the attempt to brighten up the room, don’t lose out on the balance of the shades and colors of the accessories and furniture you choose.
