3 Tips for Lighting a Dark Home, Fairbanks, Alaska

If your home lacks natural light, your local furniture store can suggest numerous options for brightening your space. Here are a few tips for illuminating dark interiors.

Lighting Ideas for Dark Interiors

1. Add Ceiling Fixtures

If you want to increase the brightness level of an entire room, overhead fixtures may be your best bet. There are styles of ceiling light fixtures to complement every home interior. If you’re feeling bold, try a dramatic chandelier that not only will brighten any room but will make any space seem more open.

2. Choose a Mix of Lighting Sources

To gain more light while keeping the mood soft, warm, and intimate, dispense with overhead lighting and add some extra lamps and sconces to a room instead. Place designer lamps on your end tables and nightstands, light up dim corners with tall floor lamps, and increase ambient lighting by lining the walls of rooms and hallways with chic sconces. Or think about aiming a gooseneck lamp at your favorite armchair to create a cozy reading nook. To get more ideas for filling your home with light, browse the room galleries of a furniture store near you.

Focused light can make it much easier to do everyday tasks. By installing under-cabinet lighting in your kitchen, you’ll get an extra source of light to help you with food preparation. Installing task lighting to brighten up your bathroom vanity—above sinks or alongside mirrors—will help you get ready in the morning. You might be surprised at how many task lighting options you can find at your local furniture store.
