6 Design Tricks for a Windowless Room



(Via Coffee in the Sun)
A windowless room is a conundrum even for the most creative designers. It's truly mind-blowing how much we overlook the importance of windows in interior design until confronted with the challenge of turning a dark, claustrophobic room into an inviting and comfortable living space without the benefit of natural light. Although there is no substitute for the soft glow of sunlight through a window, here are a few simple design tricks for opening up a windowless room and creating a sense of sparkle and light?even when there isn't any!
(Via Interior Exterior Ideas)
1. Put a Mirror on It. Use a large wall or standing mirror somewhere in your design. Any light present in the room will sparkle when it hits the glass, and the reflective qualities of the mirror will add depth to your space. (Via West Elm)
2. And some art!  Break up the long expanses of windowless walls with artwork. Large statement pieces are great in tiny rooms, but you can also create interesting vignettes out of smaller objects of varying height and texture. Think of the frames as standing in for the windows the room doesn?t have.

3. Light Walls. The most basic trick in the book is to paint all the walls in your windowless room a light shade. White and pale blue shades mimic the spectrum of natural light. If you're dealing with a low ceiling as well, paint the ceiling to give the illusion of height. A light colored area rug does the same for your flooring.
