- Metallic decor
Metallic accessories are a must have in a dark room. They are good in reflecting light. Decorate with Brass, Copper, Silver, Gold finishes and you will see a difference. Metallic accessories add light and elegance to the room. They have such glam vibes, don’t miss out on this.
Curtains are the real deal. One wrong move with them and you have yourself a dark room or a messy room or a room that looks like it’s missing something. As much as bold colors are great to have a dark room needs light curtains. Dark curtains are not your friends. Invest in sheer and light colored curtains. Dark rooms resent dark curtains. Don’t do that to your room.
- Go monochrome
This is one of the best ideas to trick a dark room. Work with neutral monochromes especially with your furniture, wall art and rugs. Shades of white, shades of gray and shades of brown will brighten up your dark room.
You don’t need to crowd a space and more so a dark space. Minimalism is the way to go when it comes to dark rooms. Bulky and dark furniture will only make your room appear smaller and somewhat darker. Just have what you need; clutter will only make it worse.
Piece of advice, white works best. As much as bold colors are trendy and stylish white will always have its own spark. You will never go wrong with this color. Do you want your room to look elegant? Do white. Do you want your room to be brighter? Do white. Do you want your room to look bigger? Do white. I can go on and on. Paint your ceiling white, completely white, as white as snow. I’m sure you get it now. Paint your walls the same white or if that’s too much for you, use off white. Stick to white when it comes to painting the dark room.
Mirrors! Saving the best for last. Mirrors are perfect decor accessories in a dark room. They reflect light making a room appear bigger and brighter.
