Bonjour lecteurs! Who out there is bored of the gloomy weather we have been having lately? Fancy some brighter days, so that it really feels like spring is in the air? I decided to do more interiors. And after un peu de recherche, I am happy to share with you 6 Simple Ways To Brighten Up Your Home. Et voilà! Get inspired and let me know what you fancy doing in your own home!
1. Use White Or Light Coloured Furniture
Wherever possible, search for white furniture, rather than dark colors. It will immediately bring some light to any room, especially on sunny days.
Most of our rooms are decorated in a scheme of white and pale grey. Not only it always looks très chic, but it easily adds up some space.
Think white bookcases, cream or light grey couches, and white tables.
And if you already have dark wood floors, brighten them up with off-white rugs.
2. Paint Your Walls White
Most of our house follows the same white pattern. When we looked at places, we wanted something with not much work needed. So, we opted for a newly built property and it came with white walls and very pale or light coloured wallpaper.
At first, I thought we would change it gradually over the years. But we appreciated how light and bright each room looked. En plus, it also makes our home looks bigger.
Par exemple, j’adore sitting in my living room. I really appreciate the space we have.
3. Made-To-Measure Glazing
Fancy a bigger project that will brighten up your home on top of adding some value to it?
Then go further with made-to-measure glazing. Nowadays, there are many local companies that offer great services.
And you have such a grande varitété d’options: sliding doors, spring bi-fold doors… The choice is unlimited. My friend added some bifold doors on the back of her house last year. And the results were incredible!
It opened up her dining room space and provided such an amazing view on her garden!
4. Mirrors & House Plants
Not quite your budget? Pas de problèmes! Why not add some house plants?
And mirrors are handy too. They capture the natural light and reflect it for a brighter home!
Little trick! Place them across from a light source such as windows to catch some extra light. Et voilà!
5. Bulb It Up!
Bad play on words? 😅 Well, I could not resist. And this is such a simple way to Brighten Up Your Home.
I have recently ordered a couple of lights for the house. I will share more on the blog soon so stay tuned!
Avoid lamps with a yellow tint. Instead switch to Bright White LED bulbs to maximize the brightness of the lamp.
I also love some classic fairy lights. Nowadays, you can purchase them in all stores. And there are so many cute shapes. Stanley has a bunny garland in his room, and we have some beautiful flowers in the living room. I love putting them on in the evenings when we watch TV. It gives such a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere to our home.
6. White and Silver Accessories
And last but not least, go white or silver overall! I like getting all sorts of accessories in the couleur.
Cushions, frames, lamps, vases, or even candles and throws. It immediately brightens up our house.
And it instantly looks very smart. You can’t go wrong with it. Do you want to do further? Experiment with sparkles.
Anything with a reflective surface will increase the light refraction in the room, giving the illusion of lots of space and light. So, sparkle up!
