Brightening up a dark room seems like the ultimate tough task. If for some reason you can't do a major renovation, there are some easier ways to do it. Here you will find chic, foolproof ideas that will help you get the most out of your room.
Bright wall art
When it comes to artwork, you want to go the easier route. The lighter your artwork, the larger the room will be. If you have a darker room that feels empty or a little too dark, consider adding art with light hues to make the room feel inviting. A bold work of art with bright tones brings any room to life with a brightening effect.
Bring some bold wallpaper and maximize the space and your decorating style. In addition, this form of decoration allows you to use as much of your personality as possible. Keep it chic and optimal by using bright shades of color woven into your beloved pattern.
Light wooden floor
If a room needs additional lighting, it is best to opt for light wood floors. Light wood works great as it is generally charming. Lightly stained floors are also great for high-traffic spaces as they are great at masking scratches and other tidbits that can make darker wood look grubby after a while.
Remove any dark and heavy areas and furniture, and select a translucent object. Whether you're using translucent or lighter curtains, or changing the furniture completely, you'll want lighter colors that are almost too plain to ever feel heavy. Combine your translucent elements with darker elements for a soft contrast that also brightens the room.
