Do you have a dark room and feel like the only way to lighten it up is installing new windows? Well, there are other options. Here’s how to lighten up a dark room
To keep the room lighter for longer, keep the curtains or blinds open during daylight time.
Repaint the room a lighter colour; either creams or beiges or even pastels will help reflect light around the space much more efficiently. You can also install mirrors in the room, especially near the window, to help reflect that crucial natural light.
Install window treatments that allow more light in such as plantation shutters which will also help to improve energy efficiency. Rearranging furniture can also help create an open and airy space in your room. Rearrange so that there is more space between the bigger pieces of furniture – this means that there will be less shadow and the optical illusion of a more light and airy room.
Invest in more oversized windows such as bay windows. By having a larger window, you allow more light to come in. Bay windows are perfect for this as they are large and protrude outwards, letting in lots of natural light.
Turn on lamps, overhead lights, and candles. You can invest in lights and lamps that mimic natural light, which means if you don’t like the artificial glare of most lamps, you might feel more comfortable. Install an energy-efficient LED bulb in every lamp fixture in the room for maximum brightness!
These are just some easy steps you can take to brighten up a dark room. If you want, you can also consult with a professional about how to make your space brighter. With just a few changes, you’ll be able to enjoy your room without feeling cramped or dreary. Contact E&A Windows for window installation and repair today.
