With the inception of winters, the weather becomes gloomy and sad. Even a small window can brighten up your place. Get a perfect decor for your home in winters and brighten up your days.
If you don’t have enough space to add new lights, add a few mirrors adjacent to your lights. Mirrors create the illusion of more lighting sources, and doubles the amount of light that bounces around your apartment.
Though candles are a great way to add light and style to your living area, consider more safer options like LED candles and battery operated lights. Not only are they safer from fire hazards, they can also be placed anywhere.
Now that you have new lamps, string lights and mirrors around the house, take some time to consider the proper placement of each piece to maximise the effect. Also don’t put all the lighting in one room and neglect other places. Put at least one light source near each corner of larger rooms.
Sticking to lighter shades
To keep your apartment as bright as possible, stick to light-coloured lamp shades. Darker lamp shades will filter out a considerable amount of light and may leave you sitting in the dark.
These might remind you of the festive season, but they work well when it comes to adding more light to your house and also look pretty as a home decor idea. Simply string them around the window or adorn your book shelve with it. For a classier look, go for white ones rather than coloured.
Proper lighting not only provides enough light to your home during the dark hours but also adds up to your efforts of home decor.
