Turning a house into a home is special and unique to each person. Creating a functional space that reflects your and your family's personalities is an intricate balance. For those looking for ways to bring more warmth into their home, check out the following tips to brighten your living space from the interior design experts at Designed Living Inc.

  1. Paint

Freshening up or changing the color of paint in your living space is a quick and easy way to brighten up your space while staying on budget. By picking light or white hues, your space will feel bigger and airy, instantly brightening the room.

  1. Furniture

When brightening up your living space, something as small as a new chair or ottoman can bring new warmth to a room. Choosing pieces with simple designs and light or bright colors help the light reflect in the room and in turn, enhance that light and airy space.

  1. Rugs

The same goes for rugs. Whether it’s an accent or area rug, picking light or bright patterns helps the space to feel more open. The light rug will help light bounce off of the floor. This is an especially great tip if you have dark flooring.

  1. Window Coverings

If there are windows present in a room, choosing light and airy curtains will create the illusion of a bigger space. White, linen or a soft beige can be great options and if you really want to brighten the space, opt for curtains made of sheer materials to amplify the natural light.

  1. Throw Pillows

For a minor refresh, pillows are a great option. Picking light and bright shades of pillows can bring the finishing and brightening touch to a room. Make sure to choose colors that will balance the style of the rest of the room.

  1. Décor

Candles, vases, frames and art on the wall can also be used to bring more lightness to the space. Opt for simplistic designs to keep the space feeling open and uncluttered.
