How to brighten up your home in three easy steps

Living in a dark, dull home can really affect your mood. Spaces seem smaller and more cramped, and scientific research has proven that this can negatively impact the mental well-being of those in residence.

If this is the case in your home, it’s time to take action; follow our top tips today to brighten up your interior and boost your happiness.

Step one: apply a fresh coat of paint

Dark colours have a nasty habit of absorbing light. This is exactly the opposite of what you want, so if your walls and ceilings are dull and drab, it’s time to give them a fresh coat of paint. Choose a bright white that will reflect the light coming into the room and make your space seem larger and airier.

Step two: enhance the natural light in your home

You should make the most out of your natural lighting by choosing window accessories that allow light to penetrate the room. We recommend Roman, Venetian, and vertical blinds, which work well thanks to their diaphanous fabrics and ability to fully retract.

Don’t forget to clean your windows at regular intervals too. This will remove any build-up of dirt, along with smears and streaks, so that light is not blocked from entering your home.

Step three: add some mirrors

You probably don’t want to spend a fortune on brightening up your house, so another easy and economical tip to help you is to incorporate a few extra mirrors into your interior spaces. These help to reflect and enhance the light in your home and should be placed directly opposite windows for maximum effect. Those with light-coloured frames are best suited to such a task and can make a real difference to the feel of your property.
