Having a dark and dingy bedroom can have a dramatic effect on your mood. The best way to get out of these moods is by having a bright and airy bedroom as it can seriously change your frame of mind. So if you are in need of some advice on how to brighten up your bedroom, then this is going to be the perfect article for you.
Pick A Light Colour For Your Walls and Furniture
Having a dark and dingy bedroom with dark furnishings can seriously block out the light, especially if the room doesn’t let in much light in the first place. The best option to get out of this rut is by adding more natural light colours to the space so that it lets in as much light as it possibly can. Opting for colours like cream, white and other neutral colours will make the space beautiful and minimalistic whilst also reflecting the light. Remember, you will be adding decoration so don’t worry about being too minimalistic. When looking for furniture, you should also be looking at light-coloured furnishings or at least a light wood.
You can also add a splash of colour through your soft furnishings to add layers of texture to every room. This could be through colour and textures in your bedding, throws, pillows and even some botanical wall prints. Don’t be afraid to go bold as a light coloured room always looks best with a splash of colour.
Hang A Large Mirror
One of the best ways to brighten up any room is to have a large mirror hung on the wall, or have a large freestanding mirror. Either are good options. The mirror should be opposite the best light source, such as your window or your lamp. This is because the mirror will reflect all of the light it gets throughout the bedroom which will, in turn, make your room much brighter than you would first think. The bigger the mirror, the more light it reflects, but don’t forget, you want the room to still be functional so opt for something that won’t clog up your walkway or be bashed into.
Implement Ambient Lighting
Rather than just sticking to the normal basic light that you have in your bedroom, why not opt for something a little more sleek and sophisticated by adding a range of different lightings in your bedroom. This will add depth and warmth to any room.
Firstly pick up some bedside table lamps, that’s right, there are two sides of the bed so it needs two matching table lamps. You can also pick up a standing lamp for the corner and possibly introduce a new shade or light for the ceiling. Opt for warm white rather than cool white bulbs as this will just remove the ambience from the room. Look at spreading some candles throughout the room too as this is a great ambience in the winter months.
If you have a dark and dingy bedroom it can seriously influence your mood throughout the day so opt for brighter furnishings, big mirrors and a nice light coloured room and you will see that your mood changes straight away.
