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.

From the first moment when Arthur came round to advise, measure-up and quote for the job we felt we were in good hands. And his team of installers provided the best service. I always think that the best test is if something needs further attention and in this case they returned promptly to fix a small issue and nothing was too much trouble. Our new doors have transformed the back of our house and we highly recommend this company for work of the highest quality. Thank you Arthur and team!

We got our back and front doors replaced by E&A Windows and we couldn't be happier with the job they did. Erez was so helpful as took the time to come to our home to give us a quote, explaining all our options thoroughly and clearly without being pressuring in the slightest. The quality of both doors was fantastic and Adrian’s installation was fast and completed to a very high standard. He was also very helpful. We would highly recommend E&A Windows and will definitely use them again for any future double glazing needs. Thanks so much!

Very professional service! During my initial consultation, I was fortunate enough to deal with the owner of the company. He visited my property and spent a few hours talking me through design options and his recommendations. His recommendations were very insightful and ensured my build looked elegant and modern while retaining the functionality required for an active family of 4. The build process was equally professional with the construction team arriving when they said, treating my property with respect and cleaning up after they finished each day...something not often done by today's tradesmen. I've recommend this company to my parents.

I have just had new windows installed by E&A Windows and I must say I was very impressed. Arthur the owner of the company was so helpful and supportive throughout the process. I don't know much about windows so was skeptical at first, but I felt at ease very quickly. The guys who came to fit the windows (John, Christie and Peter) were absolute legends. They were extremely friendly and so so helpful, and the respect they gave me, my elderly parents and our home was exceptional. They took care of our home as if it was their own. I have never come across such professionals, not only did they do a fantastic job , but they went well beyond, seemed like nothing was impossible. They were with us only for 3 days but my parents were actually sad to see them go. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to fit new windows.
