A dark room can make it look smaller than it really is. This can be a problem for a small house or if you are trying to sell it. There are few ways to solve this perception problem. One of the easiest is brighten through lighter colors, either on the way or through your accents. It brings extra light in there and expands the walls. Mirrors will also expand the area and help bring in light. You can always add in actual windows to bring in those external sources of light, but that isn’t always an option, especially in rentals. The last, as odd as it sounds, is clean the windows. Fix that problem and more light can come in for all to enjoy.
- To brighten a dark home – paint in light colors, sto create the illusion of light.
- Create contrast with accessories, details or furniture in order to reduce monotony
- Place mirrors strategically to reflect natural light in rooms that recieve it.
“The amazing thing about white is that it reflects most of the light that hits its surface, creating the illusion of light. Case in point: that glowing ball in the sky we call the moon.”
