SIMPLE CHANGES FOR UPLIFTING A SPACE
- Let the sun shine in. Make way for the natural light you do have by using blinds or shades in lighter fabrics, as opposed to heavy draperies, which can block natural light.
- Streamline furniture. Heavy or overstuffed furniture can overwhelm a room, contributing to that dark feeling. Opt for pieces with smooth, sleek lines, light legs, and lighter colors. Even a few less heavy pieces, like a side or coffee table, will help brighten things up.
- Add an area rug. Have dark wood floors? Add some contrast with a lighter-colored area rug.
- Hang a mirror. The light reflected in a mirror helps make a room feel brighter (and bigger). If possible, hang the mirror directly across from the window—and choose a slim frame that won’t add a feeling of heaviness to the wall.
