How to brighten up a dark and cold space

North-facing rooms can feel cold and dark due to the fact that they get little to no natural light. Styling these rooms are quite tricky, but not impossible. The first step towards improving the general atmosphere in a north-facing room is by incorporating colours that bring more life into the room. Avoid greys and stick with neutrals like yellow or a nice nude shade on the walls to give off a lighter effect.

Next, look up and take the ceiling into consideration. A clean shade of white using light-reflective paint will give off a nice luminous feel to the entire room and can go a long way in making the whole space feel bigger and creating a relaxing ambiance altogether.

Apart from painting the ceiling and the walls, adding mirrors can also create the illusion of a spacious room. Hanging a mirror on the opposite side of a window will allow light to reflect on it, instantly adding more warmth to the entire space. A shiny white floor would also help brighten up a room as light bounces off of it too.

If the structure permits, consider replacing the windows or adding some more. However, if that’s not possible, switching from drapes to roller blinds should also do the trick.

Finally, if major renovation is an option, tearing down walls is another great idea to brighten up a room. Creating a bigger space will allow more light to penetrate, at least during some parts of the day. The best solution in any case is to simply add more artificial light as that’s where the rest of the illumination is going to come from. With all these changes, your north-facing room should feel lighter and brighter in no time.
