If you’re living in a dark room, it can be hard to get anything done. The lack of sunlight and abundance of shadows can quickly turn your day from happy to gloomy, especially in winter. But don’t worry! There are plenty of easy ways to brighten up the space around you so that your mood stays positive all day long, no matter the season. In this article, we’ll show you how!

Brighten a dark room with windows

Some rooms face away from the sun or have large objects blocking the light, like trees or neighbours canopies or garages. Sometimes a solution can be a bigger window if these objects are not movable and the wall faces the sun enough. Larger windows such as balcony windows and bay windows allow more light and brighten up your room.

Brighten a dark room with french doors

If your room has external doors, you may want to consider using french doors; the large glass panels will let natural light shine into every corner of your room, brightening it up.

If there are objects that are obstructing your light that is potentially movable, this will also help. For instance, if you remove a tree and plant it elsewhere, or park your car elsewhere if these are blocking the light, your room will become lighter.

Paint and wallpaper for lighter rooms

You can also lighten your room with your choice of paint, wallpaper or decor. Light colours help bounce and reflect what light there is across your room. Pick light colours like off whites, creams, and pastels. Choose less busy patterns in the wallpaper to make an optical illusion that the room is lighter.

Natural light lamps for a lighter room

You can also buy lamps and light bulbs that mimic natural sunlight. Many you can add timers on to mimic the rising and setting of the sun. These are brilliant as a quick and final choice.
