Four ways to decorate a room with limited daylight

Four ways to decorate a room with limited daylight

If you're looking to decorate but your room only has limited daylight, don't stress - these simple tips are sure to help

1. If a space in your house poses the challenge of having very little or no daylight coming into the room, start off by keeping the walls light in colour to help make the space feel bigger. However, don’t feel limited to white, bright colours can work just as well.

2. Complete the look by introducing pops of colour through bright accessories to add vibrancy. Natural light is great, but adding colour is just as important to complete a space.

3. If the only source of daylight coming into a room is blocked by a door, position a large mirror to reflect the light and fully bounce it around the room.

4. Avoid filling the room with too much furniture, as this will reduce floor space, which is important for maintaining a feeling of openness. When furniture is required, such as storage in a bedroom, choose white rather than dark woods and opt for glossy finishes to help reflect the light.
