How to make the room brighter

Sunlit room - perfectfield to work on the interior. However, not every room has this remarkable property. Let's look at the basic principles of light propagation and discuss, with the help of some ways you can make the room lighter and correspondingly visually more spacious.

1. Turn your room into a "white cube"


Nothing expands the space as blurrythe boundary between the planes. Paint the walls and floor in white, on the floor lay a light cover, and turn your room into a magical "white cube". Under glimpse its boundaries are erased, and look nenashedshy contrasting points of contact with the walls of the ceiling and the floor space will take much longer than it actually is.

Let's list the materials which will help you to realize this vision:

Flooring - parquet, board, laminate, solid wood, parquet,cork (already produce it with all kinds of surface designs), vinyl flooring, self-leveling floors. Walls - paint, plaster, wallpaper, wall panels. Ceiling - painted.

2. Leverage mirrors


The mirror has a huge impact on the illuminationroom, if properly use it. Place the mirror so that it reflects the light box and the wall. Thus, you as if double the effect and increase the amount of light in the room. No matter what the mirror will be the size or shape - a huge canvas full height or a little decor of the mirrored glass pieces arranged at different angles. You need to see in the room its main advantages and the winning side with respect to the illumination and using reflective object to increase their influence.

3. Use pastel colors


In poorly lit rooms with experimentscolor combinations can be very dangerous. That is why we strongly recommend that you avoid all dark colors and shades of gray. Property surfaces reflect each other in the end lead to the fact that the low level of your room lighting only worsen. Combinations that would be very noble and interesting to a large light room, at risk of being depressed and withered in such premises.


In the selection of materials, choose colors evenlighter than the original you would like. The lack of light and the brightness in the room will make the wallpaper visually darker than they appeared to you in the store as fluorescent lighting or bright sunlight.

The window in the apartment is the only sourcedaylight, and in a poorly lit room a crime zashtorivat it. Not necessarily does not decorate the window. You can either side of the window to hang light but dense curtains to be able to close them as needed. Tulle is better not to hang up, or permanently remove it closer to the curtains. This will create a multi-layered, and textiles on the windows will look even more interesting.

5. Keep track of light reflection


As is known, light rays tendreflect. And then, what texture the walls and surrounding objects, it affects the degree of reflection. For example, high-gloss surfaces and reflect better than the dull and bright - it is better than dark. The smooth surface in this sense is more favorable than the rough texture. Remember that every object in the room, and wall coverings - especially (because it is a very large area), impact on surrounding objects and surfaces, and they, in turn, affect them. The more opportunities you give reflection, the room will seem lighter.

For example, removing the carpet from the floor, a large highnap, you almost double the light, and this can be checked with the help of special devices. Think in advance what items you need to surround, and if you face the goal is to make the room brighter, first think about the texture and color of the objects. Plan it, because without accurate calculations can get as a result of clumsy design and poor organization. Only planning will help you to correct existing deficiencies.

In this case, it is possible to apply all the tips on one premise - because daylight is simply impossible to overdo it. But if all of a sudden it is still not enough, there is always the artificial lighting, decorative possibilities is so wide that the lack of a glance at the correct service can make the biggest advantage of your room. The main thing - do not despair and do not grieve, and to take the circumstances as they are, knowing firmly in mind that in the end everything will turn out exactly wonderful. Good luck to you repair!
