Brightening Up Those Dark Spaces


These tips can come in handy when selling a place, looking at potential buying opportunities or even just trying to spruce up your current living conditions.


  1.         Paint the Ceiling White

A dark ceiling will make a room feel small. To make a room appear and feel larger, adding a fresh coat of a lighter color of paint will really open it up.



  1.         Stay away from darker colors

Keep your dark colors to accents. Too much of a darker color will make a room feel small and cramped, and very dark.



  1.         Lighten your windows

Make the most of what natural light you have. Stay away from heavy window coverings by choosing minimal options like blinds and shades.



  1.         Minimize furniture

In a smaller area especially, heavy furniture can overwhelm the space. Keep your furniture true to the size of your living area.



  1.         Change your lighting

Use bright lightbulbs such as LEDs. They give a brighter, more natural looking light plus help save on energy costs.



  1.         Adding mirrors

Mirrors help to create an illusion of light and space. If you are trying to create a lighter atmosphere, adding a mirror to the area will definitely help.
