Use natural light to accent your room’s interior with Honeycomb Shades

5 Tips to Brighten Up A Dark Room

Breathe new life into your living space with some quick tips and tricks to brighten up the space. If you’re afraid your home is looking a bit drab or simply want to lighten it up, there are plenty of things you can do.

Use natural light to accent your room’s interior with Honeycomb Shades

Secrets to Lighten Up a Room

Bringing light to a dark room will drastically make it more appealing. Don’t resort to structural changes before trying out these easy tips. With a few simple adjustments to your home decor, you can make your home look larger and more inviting. Replace your Blackout Curtains with Honeycomb Shades, add an accent wall, choose items with reflective surfaces, and carefully choose the placement for candles and lamps.

Accent Walls

The first step to opening up a small space is to choose paint colors that will lend a sense of openness to a room. An accent wall will give a room a greater sense of depth and space by visually pushing it backwards. Play with color and contrast to make your space seem more inviting. Try out dark accent colors such as navy, gray, or red.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb Shades from 3 Day Blinds are made up of hexagon-shaped cells that allow the shades to filter sunlight. There are a multitude of opacity choices, from Transparent, to Light Filtering, to Room Darkening. The beauty of these types Honeycomb Shades or otherwise called Honeycomb Blinds, is that they provide privacy without blocking sunlight from entering the room. If you want to use natural light to lighten up the space, Honeycomb Shades are a go-to window treatment because of their versatility.

Candles and Lamps

Strategically place your lamps and candles in places that will enhance their effect and brighten up the room. Place a floor lamp at the back corner on either side of a space to brighten the room from side to side. Also consider placng the light source next to a reflective surface.

Add Some Sparkle

Reflective surfaces will make a plain room look larger and brighter. You will want to add some crystal photo frames, mirrored coasters, or a mirror rectangular coffee table to your home decor. This stylish Marni Mirrored Rectangular Coffee Table can be found at Pottery Barn. Nordstrom offers a beautiful selection of reflective photo frames including these Kate Spade ‘darling point’ and ‘grace avenue’ picture frames.

Paint the Ceiling White

Don’t go the extra mile to paint the ceiling the same color as the walls. A dark ceiling will loom over you, making the room feel small. Paint the ceiling white and the room will immediately open up.

There are several ways you can make your room visually more appealing and make it appear brighter and larger. Before opting for structural changes, be sure to check out different types of window treatments. Honeycomb Shades could drastically change your living space.

Sprucing Up Your Home For Spring!

 

This Spring, give your home a fresh new look with 3 Day Blinds custom window treatments. Boston Herald Radio Host and Columnist, Jacklyn Cashman contacted 3 Day Blinds to share her experience with our brand.

Before meeting with her design consultant, Sara Morin, Jaclyn was not sure what type of window treatments she wanted, whether she should go with Plantation Shutters, Custom Curtains, Shades, or Blinds. Without our free in-home consultation, Cashman admits, “I would have gone with a product that frankly wouldn’t have given me the light that I needed.”

At 3 Day Blinds, we strive to delight our customers and offer them the guidance and design expertise needed to make their home look and feel wonderful with new window treatments. We love what we do and we are so thrilled to help Jaclyn Cashman and other customers like her find the right window treatments for their space.

3 Day Blinds can help you redesign your home with Custom Window Treatments. Take it from Jaclyn Cashman:

“3 Day Blinds did not contact Jaclyn Cashman and Boston Herald radio and say hey  lets do an endorsement deal. Jaclyn Cashman contacted 3 Day Blinds after I had a really good experience with you guys and said you should be advertising on Herald Radio. More people should know about you. I will endorse your brand. I’m very happy.”

 

Spring is the time for plans and projects. Give your home a fresh new look with 3 Day Blinds window treatments.

Boston Herald Radio Host and Columnist, Jaclyn Cashman describes our “Room Darkening” Shades as a Blackout Shades because the custom fit minimizes the amount of light that can enter a room. See for yourself how our Made to Measure Curtains, Blinds, Shades, or Drapes can help you get a better night’s sleep.

Window Treatments to Help You Sleep

Light and darkness are powerful cues that tell your body when it is time to rest or start a new day. For parents and babies especially, its important to regulate the amount of light that comes into the room to get the best quality sleep.

Light and Melatonin

Our ability to sleep is tied to light exposure and our melatonin levels – a hormone that helps regulate our sleep-wake cycle. According to the National Sleep Foundation:

“Exposure to light stimulates a nerve pathway from the retina in the eye to an area in the brain called the hypothalamus. There, a special center called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) initiates signals to other parts of the brain that control hormones, body temperature and other functions that play a role in making us feel sleepy or wide awake.”

Studies show that “exposure to room light during usual hours of sleep suppresses melatonin levels by more than 50%.” Without Blackout Curtains or Room Darkening Window Treatments, our bodies will not be able to properly regulate our melatonin levels and get the sleep we need.

Blackout Curtains, Blinds, or Drapes

True “Blackout Curtains” do not exist because there will always be that “halo” of light between the window frame and the covering. Even the best Blackout Curtains, Blinds, or Drapes cannot completely “blackout” a room, but 3 Day Blinds Room Darkening Window Treatments come close. 3 Day Blinds Room Darkening Window Treatments can help mothers everywhere put their infants to sleep and get a much needed and deserved night’s rest.
