A house full of light is a house that is lively so the more light there is in your house, the more comfortable and relaxed you will be. So we created a list of ideas for you to have more light in your house.
Put mirrors near light sources
Using mirrors to expand visual space and brighten a dark room is known since the old age and today it is still being used to bring light to the house. To exploit their potential to the fullest, you should make sure to use the mirrors in a strategic way so you should place them near a light source. For example, a giant wall or floor mirror near a window can really amplify natural lighting. Placing table lamps or a floor lamp next to a mirror can also have a similar effect.
Pick lighter color or transparent furniture
You should always consider how your furniture decisions impact the lighting level of your home. The fact that the choice of our sofas, chairs and tables based on our personal style and what we think goes best together. To have a large, gray or navy sofa is probably not the best idea! A stylish, compact sofa in a lighter color like white, beige, or ivory will make your room look and feel a lot bigger and more spacious.
Embrace white walls
If you want your house to be bright, white is really is the best solution to brighten a dark room. White sends light bouncing around your space, reflecting back onto other surfaces and making the space look much bigger than it is. Consider adding white trims on the ceilings for added texture, or paint one side with a refreshing color for some diversity.
Aim your lights at the walls or ceiling
Instead of simply aiming your lights every which way, try illuminating the walls or ceiling. This is opposed to a bright light focused on a narrow area on the floor or a soft ambient light that offers minimal luminosity.
You can do this with a wall sconce or a floor lamp. When you wash the walls/ceiling with light, you infuse every corner of the room with a warm glow, making it feel cosy yet spacious. If you plan to install pot lights into your ceiling, always add a few at the very edges so that you can elegantly cast light down the walls.
