2. Use Different Types Of Lighting
Rather than stick to just one main source of lighting in a dark room, it is much better to embrace multiple types of lighting such as lamps, task lighting, and overhead lighting. This will make the space appear happier and more welcoming.
3. Change To Warm White Bulbs
Whilst cool white light bulbs can look nice, if you have a naturally dark room, then you need to do everything you can to make it feel warmer. One of the simplest ways to do this is by replacing any cool white bulbs with warm white ones.
4. Make Use Of LED Strips
LED strips offer a great and inexpensive way to add light to a dark room. If you have any cabinets or joinery in the space, then be sure to add LED strips to these. You can also add LED strips to the underside of shelving to highlight any items on display.
