How to brighten you Dark house in a few easy steps. Nobody likes to sit in the gloom of the dark. At least not for long. “Let there be light” is a concept that literally dates back to the beginning of time. Let’s see how to spiff up a dark space.
📜 Tips to Spiff Up Dark House
Keep the Contrast
Strategically Place Mirrors
Install New Windows
Sometimes the problem isn’t the amount of light, but rather the quality.
Overhead lights can brighten up a room, but the effect is as harsh as high-noon sunlight.
While we don’t want a dark house we certainly do not want to make matters even worse by creating a lot of glare either.
Instead, you want the diffuse, indirect light of early morning.
Place lights near the walls and place LED strips under cabinets to cover the wall in a soft glow.
Be sure to include task lighting wherever it’s needed most, such as the home office or wherever you need to read and work.
