There might be ample square feet, all the wide windows – and yet, do your rooms still look gloomy? Well, it’s your lucky day you found us! Rooms can get darker than expected without you realizing their change. They may look smaller, faded, or even uninviting. And that’s why periodic cleansing rituals are important. Confused? Keep reading!
Your spaces require routine check-ups to make sure it lets out a fresh breath of air. When you come back home after a tiring day, the rooms are supposed to ease your resting rather than adding another ‘chore to-do’ for the day. However, there can be a mind-block situation when you still have everything placed in the right places. For such a crisis, a simple addition of specific furnishings and decors to your homes can turn up the whole look quite fascinatingly. Here’s presenting all tricks that can help you sail through the dilemma:
Ring in the happy colors
It’s an obvious fact that bright colors can do wonders to revamp your homes. But random colors may not work in favor here. Common eye-catchy colors that designers choose to brighten up spaces are the shades of the sun. These may be tones of red, orange, and yellow. Imagine a beige-colored sofa with red cushions staring at you. They would look classy, fun, and become the instant winner in any room. The shades of the sun (a natural light emitter) are considered a good choice for such simple remodeling.
Another option, also another extreme of the above shades, is the Neutrals. Beige, brown, cream, black, and white are popular colors under a neutral palette. These colors can be used as an overall theme for the room or only with specific furnishings like cushions, rugs, and curtains. They reflect a natural habitat and provide the illusion of a spacious interior.
Matte finishes to fabrics can revamp a whole new look to the stretch. Glossy cushion covers and curtains can appear to make the room smaller than actual. Quite relievingly, cotton handwoven fabrics do not have that glitch. The weaving patterns will organically allow a matte finish, complementing a classy decorum.
Sheers to the rescue
An effortless way to quirk up dull spaces is to install sheer cotton curtains. They are light in texture and appearance, giving out a breezy impression. Even for small windows, nestling these curtains convey an expansive area. During the day, shut curtains can still let in just the right amount of light you need.
In the case of long balconies or uniquely designed windows, there is always the option to customize them. You do not have to settle for random thick dark ones just because those were the only ones available. Based on the length, width, and fabric selection, uniquely fashioned sheers can spruce up grim areas.
Less means more
You may have all the perfect furniture in your homes, yet they seem to suffocate – leaving no corners idle. This can be disheartening to agree upon but may make sense to your reason. Less furniture means more space and so more light. So, how would you style the house then? Like ‘cushion-walk’ (was worth a try)!
Floor cushions are an easy replacement for those unwanted chairs. They have better grip, comfort, and flexibility to move around the house. A good pop of style too!
Rugs are your other solution. They can be laid out anywhere in the house without worrying about the seats (or fighting for it). Bright rugs can be spread out in the living, even under tables if you must, to bring in some color to the expanse.
Homes can get heavy with all the over drapings and cushioning done. They need to have a breathing space to let out fresh and cheerful vibes. Light fabrics such as cotton and linens have innate traits of an airy and comfy deliverance. Setting them up leads to brighter rooms and even portals for natural light to pass through.
