Goodbye, Dark Winter:
Lighten Up Your Living Room with These Tips
Figuring out how to bring more light into a dark room is always a challenge, especially during the gloomy winter months. But even if your space lacks large windows and natural light, there are plenty of ways to transform your living room into a brighter abode, even on the darkest days.
Minimize Window Treatments
If you’re lucky enough to have large windows in your living room, consider leaving them unadorned. What you may sacrifice in privacy, you’ll gain in natural light. If the thought of bare windows makes you nervous, opt for light white, beige or gray coloured drapes to bring in more light.
Use Mirrors to Your Advantage
Placing a large wall or floor mirror near a window is an easy way to amplify natural lighting during the day. You can achieve the same effect in the evening by putting a table or floor lamp close to the mirror.
Repaint Your Furniture
Furniture with darker finishes may look luxurious, but these pieces can cramp small, dark spaces. With a fresh coat of white paint, you’ll create an airier feel to your living space—plus, it’s a great indoor project to take on in the winter.
