Many times, the rooms in a home are windowless. If your bedroom lacks a window, it is fine as we prefer sleeping in a dark room. But what if your bedroom is dark even during the day? There are several ideas and tricks that can bring light into even the gloomiest room, or create an illusion of light in that room.

Bring in Light Source

One of the easiest ways to illuminate any room is to bring in another light source like a table lamp. It can be installed in your bedroom on a nightstand, dresser, and you may even opt for a floor lamp. Lighting sources are not just limited to one, but you can get more pieces as well like lamps on both sides of your bed. Invest in ceiling light or get some ambient lighting done.

Choose Colors and Furniture in Your Room Wisely

White and light tones wall colors can create an illusion of a bigger room. These colors are perfect to reflect light, but what if your room doesn’t have enough natural light itself to reflect? In this case, choose mid-tone hues for your walls. Also, choose furniture pieces wisely like picking clean and contemporary lines without any embellishment to prevent the cluttered look. Your furniture pieces should have long, thin legs so that it exposes more room floor for a bigger room illusion.

Get Decorative Wall Mirrors and Mirrored Furniture

Using art is an amazing idea to lighten up the dark spaces along with some addition to the overall aesthetics. In your bedroom hang a large mirror across the window, that lets in the sunlight and thereby bounce all the light in your area. Making use of furniture pieces with some mirrored accents is also a nice way to incorporate more light into the room.

Opt for Sheer Window Coverings

A pro tip of letting in more light into your room and making it look bigger is to make use of light tone draperies. Heavy and dark color curtains will block the light into your room. If your wall color is dark, light-colored window covers will also create a nice contrast.
