Design Refresh: 4 Simple Ways to Brighten Up Your Space


Sometimes all you need to refresh a space are a few simple updates to make it feel like new.

We polled our Modsy designers to get their ideas on the best and easiest ways to refresh a space. Here are their top 4 tips on how to brighten up any space.

1. Create an accent wall.

We think a fresh coat of paint can work some real magic on a room, or if you’re feeling especially daring, go ahead and add a splash with some graphic or colorful wallpaper!


2. Mix up your lighting.

Mix and match a few table lamps and wall sconces in your space. Playing with different light sources is a great way to add warmth and a dynamic element to a room, and it will give you more control over the overall lighting.


3. Add a few house plants.

They not only brighten rooms, but add a lively bit of color and character. This is a great option for people who don’t love a lot of color in their home but still want a pop of brightness!


4. Change up your pillows.

You can do this seasonally as the weather shifts, or simply as your tastes change. Pillows add accents of color and depth to a space and are much easier (and more budget-friendly!) to swap out than an entire sofa or bed frame.
