Tips for Lighting a Dark House
Living in a dark house is not pleasant, unless you like the mysterious air and the spiky hair of your guests. Then you will be in glory. But if this is not your case, here are some tips on how to light a dark house to make the most of it. Surely the before and after you do not expect it.
Natural Multi Lighting
Dark houses often have this problem because they are located in a place where light is barely visible, or only a few hours a day. Or because they don't have windows.
If your case is the first, you will have to take advantage of that natural multi lighting to take advantage of it. How? You can try clearing the space where the light enters so that there are no obstacles and so it can filter better. It is also recommended that you change the wooden doors for glass doors that, in contact with the sunlight, will make it project.
If you can also place mirrors so that natural multi lighting can filter to other parts of the house, you will make all of it seem bright during the hours that the sun hits it. And when this is not there, you can always achieve the same effect with lamps with natural multi lighting bulbs.
Not only on the walls and ceiling, but also on the furniture. Choose, as far as possible, pastel colors that also give a feeling of spaciousness to the rooms and will make them look bigger.
As for furniture, we advise you to opt for white or off-white. It is a way to give light to the dark house because, with them, you are going to make it look more cheerful and bright. You can consider some transparent furniture, with Cristal, acrylic or reflective materials. They are not well known, but for dark houses it can help make spaces look and feel brighter.
Even in the upholstery you can opt for a white tonality or add some light to get rid of that feeling of darkness.One of the decorative elements is the curtains. We recommend that they be clear and light, so that they allow the light to enter better. The thickest and most dense curtains will only create a feeling of darkness which is precisely what is not wanted.
Decoration of your House
Lighting a dark house also involves choosing a type of decoration that is not going to be dark or, at least, that does not make it heavy and closed. Therefore, put aside the traditional or baroque decoration and opt for a modern design with light structures.
If possible, sign up for minimalism so that there are not so many objects in a space and that, those that exist, are bright with the keys that we have given you before.
Choose Lamps Wisely
Lighting a dark house has a trick that we reveal to you here: using unconventional lamps. Well yes, this type of luminaires go very well in dark houses because they capture people's attention and, at the same time, provide light and eye-catching. For example, choose floor lamps in the corners, with light shades or with designs (also light), along with bulbs that simulate natural multi lighting.
Also bet on pendant lamps and in light colors that combine with the decoration you want to have. Better that they are not too heavy, simplicity is the strong point to illuminate a dark house.
As for kitchens or bathrooms, look to illuminate the LEDs that provide a very pleasant atmosphere and do not usually recharge. Of course, bet on reflective elements to diffuse the light. A lamp can end up creating an impressive light if it has those elements to help it reach every corner.
