One way to introduce a light look and feel into the home is to go for a Scandinavian design, opting for clean lines, a pale or neutral colour palette and an abundance of natural light.

In this living room, we can see how the designers have installed beautiful lamps throughout the space. These provide the home with a beautiful soft glow in the evenings.

Lighting in the living room, for example, needs to be functional but also stylish and trendy, enhancing the interior design of the home.

3. Lightweight, transparent materials

If we want to give the impression of size and space in your home, go for perspex or glass furniture that reflects the light and seems to take up very little room. 

In this dining room, we can see how icy white dining room chairs have been paired with a glass dining room table. A glass chandelier also hangs over this space, adding an extra sparkle to the space.

4. Get inspired by nature

One way to really lighten and brighten your home is to introduce some of the natural into its interior design. 

In this image, we can see how the designers have added a pale green sofa, a pot plant and even a painting depicting a leaf and flowers into the living space. This instantly breathes new life into it. 

Have a look at these other tips for making your home roar with raw materials.

5. Dominate with white

Utilize white tones throughout the interior of your home, which will instantly create a very clean, light and bright look and feel. White also immediately enhances any natural or artificial light that flows through this space.

You can break up white tones with some pot plants or vases of flowers or add a splash of colour here or there in the form of artwork or decor accessories. 

6. Go open plan

Another way to instantly open your home up and make it look spacious and bright is to go for an open plan design. Get rid of any unnecessary walls and allow the rooms to flow into one another. 

Especially if you live in a small home, closed off rooms can end up constricting the light flow.
