5 Easy Ways to Brighten up your Living Space - Black & Decker

There comes a time when you look around you, and wonder why your living space is looking so boring and drab. Well, that means it’s time for a makeover, and there are simple ways to do this without needing to spend a fortune on it. Here’s a short list to get you started:

Paint a wall: The easiest way to brighten up a space is to paint one of the walls in an accent colour, such as a bright orange or red. Choose a wall that receives some light else it might darken your space, and see the difference. With the right tools such as a good roller, you can even do this yourself within the space of a single day.

Hang a piece of art: You can use a piece of art, or even a family portrait to draw focus to one part of the room that also helps to brighten up the space. Another way to go about it would be to use a lot of smaller photos for a photo wall, instead of one large frame.
Bring in the plants: Indoor plants are a great way to add a splash of colour to the room, along with purifying the air inside your home as well. Do some research to check which plants would do well in the amount of light you receive, and most of these will flourish with minimal care.

Dash of colour: Instead of one complete wall, you could decided to add smaller splashes of colour by using décor pieces such as throw cushions, or a colourful vase. Even a differently coloured stool or table will do the trick equally well.

Add some space: If your space is crowded up with furniture, it will look cluttered and drab. Try to keep only what is necessary with a few foldable or light pieces that can be taken out of storage when additional seating may be required. You can also add a large mirror on one of the walls which helps in the perception of space.

All that is needed for most of these simple ideas, is a little bit of imagination, and a good set of tools. Do check out our paint roller and drill kits from Black & Decker, which will make your job much easier. More details at our website:
