  • Opening Intro -

    If a room in your house doesn't have many windows or has an obstruction, such as a building or several trees, it might look somewhat gloomy.

    Darkness can shape the way that you feel when you're in a room.

-------------------------------------

But there are some things that you can do about it without tearing down the adjacent building or cutting down the trees. Here are a few ways to bring in more natural light or at least make the room appear lighter and airier.

Lighter Shades of Paint

If you have a small room or one that doesn’t receive much sunlight, consider repainting. Lighter shades of paint will make the room appear brighter. If you like Scandinavian design, a simple white will work. Otherwise, if you prefer for your walls to have some color, you can use pastels. Almost any general color will work as long as it is a lighter shade. Also, remember that paint usually dries darker than what it looks like when you first paint it on. It also looks darker on the walls than the color swatch.

Window Treatments with Light Fabric and Color

Curtains made with a lightweight fabric will allow more light to stream through the curtains even when they’re shut. Lightweight fabric also tends to appear less heavy, making the room feel brighter, regardless of the amount of light. You should also choose a light color. For window curtains, white is a great color. Otherwise, a yellow sheer will make the room look bright and chipper.

 

Glass Doors

For communal rooms, such as foyers and living rooms, glass doors can help you maximize the amount of light that enters the room. In a foyer, doors with beveled-edge glass are popular. And if you have interior doors between rooms, you can invite the sunlight from another, brighter room into the gloomy one. For instance, if your kitchen is on a side of the house that receives natural light through the windows, but your living room doesn’t receive much light, you can maximize the light that the living room receives by installing a glass door instead of a wooden one. Reach out to a company like Valley Glass Utility to have glass doors installed in your home.

Mirrors

Another way to maximize the amount of light that your room receives is by adding mirrors. The light ricochets off mirrors to multiply the amount of light that the space receives. If you can, hang or position a mirror directly in front of the window, so as to cause the mirror to reflect even more light. You’ll be surprised by how much natural light you can add to your room by using mirrors.

Making a room look brighter and more inviting can boost your mood. Take special care to add lots of light colors and other materials that will make the room look like an appealing place to enjoy for hours at a time.
