Lights Up! 4 Ideas To Shed Light On Your Dark Rooms

The home seems to be a little dark. But you do like the way the furniture is arranged and do not want to change the house decor completely. Familiar situation? Then lighten it up with our few simple tricks! Make your home brighter and welcoming without changing a lot.

First and crucial, ever-winning idea is about the mirrors. Create the fresh look with the space-expanding and light-reflecting pieces. Place it at any wall (despite the one with the window) to let your room get lit. It is not necessary to place huge mirrors, but medium-sized (dresser mirrors) or sculptural ones, which double as wall art. A nice full-length mirror in a bedroom is a great accessory and a hot trend, by the way.

Second – window-treatment! Forget about the heavy dark curtains and take advantage of any natural light available at your house. If still privacy is an issue and you need those curtains to keep you hidden from the world outside – then let the curtains bring the splash of bright color to your place or choose the creamy or light-blue colored drapes.

White decorative items, splashes of bright-colored spots and glass accessories will keep reflecting the available lights. Make a focal point at one or all of the occasional tables, dresser, in the glass curio or open shelves. That counts as an idea No.3!

And, finally, in the fourth place (but still not least): take care of the evening lights. Use lamp set to add few more evening lights in the dark room. Furnish a living room conversation nook with the couple of accent chairs and a floor lamp or an end table with a lamp. Use clear and transparent ceiling lamps, pendant lighting, wall sconces. Give pride of place to chandelier with an elegant glassware if used for a formal dining room. Find few more awesome ideas on dining room furniture arrangement.
