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.
