Do you have a room in your home that doesn’t get a lot of natural light? These rooms are already “light challenged”, but there are ways you can make these spaces appear lighter and brighter. So, here are my tips to Brighten Up a Dark Room!
paint the walls and trim
The most obvious way to brighten up a room is with paint! Choose a light paint color for your walls! It’s amazing how much brighter your space will look with a lighter shade on the walls and finish it off with bright white trim! Most of the walls in my home are painted with Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore. It’s a greige shade – looking gray in some lighting and more beige in other lighting. Below is a photo of this same color in my kitchen where it can look a little more beige. I’m not a fan of grays that lean to a blue or green tone, and that’s why I love this neutral shade.
