5 Tips on how to brighten up a room

Getting bored of your bedroom or living room? Here are five simple and inexpensive ways to brighten up your life at home! Refresh your living spaces with HGTV!

Make it Shine 

Add mirrors or mirrored decorative ornaments such as trays or candy dishes to brighten up your space and make it feel more spacious.

Go Wild

Adding colors to a room is the easiest way to turn even the most boring room into somewhere fun! If you are not ready to commit to a new paint job, then add color with new throw pillows, art, area rugs, pillows and home accessories!  

Look Up

For homes that have dark painted or wood paneled ceilings, use recessed lighting fixtures to brighten up a room. Also, consider installing a dimmer switch to have versatile lighting control.

Get Creative

When selecting furniture, make sure to choose pieces that are not bulky or visually distracting. Light colored minimalist pieces can help to make the room look bigger and less cluttered.

Open up

Make full use of the natural light around you. Choose light colored curtains or blinds that still allows the natural light to filter into the room.
