Everyone loves brighter living spaces. If your new home has dark rooms or spaces without natural light, there are many ways you can brighten the areas without knocking down walls.
Learn how to brighten up spaces in your new home with different decor and furniture choices.
Here are ten tips for brightening the rooms in your new home.
The paint color you choose for your walls can brighten the rooms in your home. White, off-white, light grey and other light colors can transform your home. Painting a small room with a light color can make the room appear bigger.
Sometimes, the way you arrange your furniture makes your rooms seem dark. You can brighten up a room by rearranging the furniture to let more natural light in.
If you're trying to brighten a small room, place fewer objects and decor in the room. A balanced, open space will help the room feel more airy and light.
Having light-colored floors can make rooms feel bigger and brighten the area. If you have dark floors, lay down light area rugs or carpet tiles to brighten the space.
Mirrors can help make your rooms appear bigger while simultaneously reflecting light around the rooms. Strategically place mirrors across from light sources, like windows, to brighten up the room and let more natural light inside.
Lighter, sheer curtains will let light in while still giving you plenty of privacy.
Using light-colored furniture in rooms can also help brighten the space. Light couches, chairs, bookcases and more make excellent additions to rooms.
You can bring more natural light into your home, even if you don't have windows. You can add lamps that match your style.
Bright white bulbs resemble natural light. Switch out your warm, yellow light bulbs for a bright white LED option.
Sometimes the easiest way to brighten your home is to clean everything, from the floors and counter surfaces to the windows.
