Repainting can be a tedious task but it can also be fun if you already visualize the end result with the fave colors you want for that room. Drab, dark hues can be replaced with brighter and cheerier color combination in one’s room. White paint is always the usual option but the sunny yellow brings out a sunnier disposition to the residents. Of course, there’s also the green or teal color which is the great color for the eyes.
2. Use curtains and complement them with the room’s interior.
Thicker curtains especially lighter ones can best fit with lighter or darker furniture. However, the thick ones may also block more sunlight and may not be good if you wish to have more sun in your living space.
Sheer curtains can let in a bit of light even though it’s dark outside. A good tip would be to layer the curtains with double sided rods and sheer curtains hanging in the back to add more privacy.
3. Glass and mirror
Glass wall to divide rooms can accentuate a contemporary yet elegant interior. If these walls incorporate a mirror like effect, it can also add an illusion of space, providing a more effulgent interior. Mirrors reflect light so it’s better to put one facing a window to catch the early morning sun rays.
4. Use light colored furniture
Opt for light colored furniture instead of darker pieces. Light color palettes for your home trinkets actually create a more vibrant in your home. That’s a given if you wish a brighter abode and spacious living interior.
5. Maintain cleanliness
Okay, this is the usual thing to do to achieve that daily brightness and cheerfulness in one’s home. You don’t want to see accumulated dust especially in areas where you usually stay, do you?
