6 Tips To Bring Natural Light Into Your Home
Whether it’s energizing morning rays or dreamy sunsets, good natural light is a feature that everyone craves in their home. For those with darker interiors, ZAGAS (with a little inspiration from famed Instagram decorator, Kiva Brent) offers some easy DIY tips for making the most of (or even creating) natural light in your home.
Reflection Makes Everything Look Bigger
GET THE LOOK
Mirrors reflect light, which can make a space appear larger. Reflecting light may make a room look bigger, and mirrors can help you make the most of the light you have.
Use Light-Colored Artwork
Lighter-toned artwork can also serve to accentuate the sensation of light in a room. This is a method that combines design and usefulness, whether you're hanging a single large piece or a gallery wall.
Paint Your Room White
GET THE LOOK
Painting dark places white is another excellent approach to give the sense of light. Though a room is small, avoid dark paint colors since they might make it appear as if it is closing in on itself. If an all-white space isn't your style, paint the ceiling white. A white ceiling might aid to open up a space's top.
Pick and Choose Your Furniture Designs
Of course, we recommend light-colored furniture, but if you absolutely want to put a dark piece of furniture in a space with limited natural light, choose furniture that allows light to pass above, beneath, or even through it. A room might feel more open by having couches and chairs that lift off the floor and allow light to pass through. It will help to distribute light around the space, allowing you to make better use of the light you already have.
Make The Most Out Of Artificial Lighting
Make the most of your fixtures if you can't get any natural light into a room. End tables and floor lamps may bring light into gloomy corners, while ceiling-mounted lighting can completely change a space. Artificial lighting in unusual spaces is also a favorite of ours. You may also use lighting to provide dimension to shelves, cupboards, and closets to make a place appear larger.
Try Different Lighting Options
To transform dark environments, invest in smart light bulbs. Bright white lights, which are perfect for bathrooms and kitchens, give rooms a larger feel. Another wonderful lighting option to experiment with is LED lights.
