Spring season 2022 runs from March 20 to June 21 and will soon be here! One of the greatest ways to embrace this joyful time of year is to invite sunshine into your space. Brightening up a dark room can not only make a home look more appealing, but it can enhance the mood by making the space feel more lively and cheerful. Here are seven sensational ways to illuminate your space.

1) Remove dark window treatments and opt for softer ones such as lace or blinds that can be easily opened during daylight hours to let the sun radiate into your space.

2) Repaint dark wall colors. Try soft white wall colors such as Behr’s Whisper White or add some refreshing colors such as Behr’s Etched Glass or After Rain. Consider a glossy paint that is light reflective for higher impact.

3) Go for great lighting. Crystal lighting can brighten any room up as it reflects other light sources. It also adds glam to a space. Also, consider multiple types of light sources, from table lamps to recessed lighting to brighten things up.

4) Add mirrors on walls that face windows. This trick will not only reflect the light, but it can make a room appear larger.

5) Add pops of bright colors through artwork, pillows, throws, rugs, benches, and more. For instant cheer, choose pops of colors that remind people of spring flowers – such as gold, yellow, pinks, purples, blues, etc.

6) Add silver, gold, or glass accents to your space via wall art, shelving, and accessories like candlesticks and photo frames. A little shine goes a long way to help illuminate your space.

7) Lighten and brighten your flooring. Adding an attractive bright-colored rug over dark flooring can immediately brighten up any room.

With Spring season just around the corner, now is the time to turn your focus and energy on creating a happy environment in your home that reflects the spirit of the season. By adding brightness, even in subtle ways, you’ll find your spirits will be uplifted, and your home will reflect the joy of this favorite time of year!
