How to Add More Light to Your Home

If your room lacks an abundance of light (hello city apartment dwellers), you might be wondering how to add more light to your home. A well-lit space doesn’t just mean a brighter home; it can also boost your mood and lower your stress levels. With this in mind, here’s Store That, London Docklands, top tips to adding more light to your home.


The best way to add more light into your home is to simply hang a large mirror. By hanging a mirror, you’ll be doubling the amount of sunlight in your room by allowing it to bounce off reflective surfaces. Try to hang your mirror directly across from the largest window to get the maximum amount of light in a dark space.

Bright & Light Colours

You’ve probably seen beautiful dark interior design colours all over Instagram and Pinterest. But whilst dark blues and greys are extremely on trend, they’re unlikely to work in adding light to your home. Try to use white or neutral colour to your walls. The lighter the colour of your walls, the more they will reflect. If your walls are already neutral, you can also paint the ceiling a shade lighter to help light bounce around the room.

Light Wood Flooring

It’s not just the walls that can help brighten up your home. When a space needs an additional lift, light wood flooring is the best way to go. It helps brighten up the room and can easily mask any scratches.

Adding Furniture

Add lighter shades of furniture wherever you can, especially if they’re blocking light from windows and doors. If you’re struggling with space why not remove any dark furniture and accessories you currently have on show and put them into a secure self-storage facility such as Store That?
