8 Perfect Ways to Brighten a Room

8 Perfect Ways to Brighten a Room

At Maid Right®, we know how big a difference adding a little bit of brightness can make to any room. Few people want to cozy up in a dark, gloomy space, especially when you’re coming home from a hard day at work or showing off your home to family and friends. To help you brighten up the our home cleaning team has collected eight ways that you can bring a touch of light and openness into any room.

Add Accents

If a room has a darker color scheme you don’t want to lose, you might consider adding accents to bring in a touch of brightness. Picture frames, pieces of furniture, area rugs, sculptures, and accent walls are all great ways to brighten a darker space.

Repainted Ceilings

Ceilings are often overlooked in favor of walls and furnishings, but they make a huge difference in the brightness of any space. If your room doesn’t already have a white or off-white ceiling, consider having it repainted to open up the space.

New Blinds & Curtains

Blinds and curtains not only make a big difference in how natural light reaches a room, they also shape the feel of the room at night. Consider switching to blinds that offer greater control of natural light and curtains in a brighter shade that will help liven up your room in the evening.

Limit Furniture

A cluttered room can make a face feel dark and uninviting. Try taking out one or two pieces of furniture to see if you can’t make the space feel a little more open.

Switch to Brighter Lights

One of the easiest ways to brighten a room is to simply switch to brighter lights. If you do this, make sure you stay within the recommend wattage of your light fixtures.

Use Diffused Lighting

Sometimes a room has enough light already, it’s just not being used to its full potential. Light-diffusing lampshades and light covers help light spread more evenly and will eliminate harsh contrasts that can make a space uninviting.

Bring Home Flowers

Flowers are a classic choice for bringing a little bit of life — and a little bit of nature — into any indoor area. While our home cleaning team prefers the look, feel, and smell of real flowers, there are plenty of gorgeous artificial flowers that can brighten a room for less cost and less maintenance.

Hang Mirrors

Mirrors allow you to reflect light within a room, making it easy to do more with natural light and artificial light sources. They also mimic windows and can give a smaller room the feeling of more space.
