Rooms without windows: 4 tips to brighten them up

It is time to talk about the disowned spaces, today specifically about the rooms without windows. Feared, excluded and often locked or destined to keep everything you don’t want in your home.

But maybe it’s also time for you to realize that you may be missing out on a wonderful space with a lot of potential. It’s not so much what you have, but how you make the most of it.

With some very simple tricks you will be able to give that room the importance it deserves and start enjoying it, because you have it for a reason!

Here goes.

Choose the right type of light.

Play with the decoration.

Make the decorative elements add an extra touch to the room. Above all, mirrors will give amplitude and luminosity, because through the reflection they will create light where you didn’t think there was any.

Color, your best ally.

I think it is obvious that unless you want to have a “bat cave” you should not paint these rooms black, blue or dark gray. These colors will only make the room darker and smaller.

Use lighter shades such as beige, white or nude.
If you have to choose a color palette, I recommend earth tones or yellow to give it warmth.

Are you still afraid of windowless rooms?

Face your fears by questioning those beliefs that prevent you from having the space you want. I explain everything here:
