How to Decorate Rooms that Lack Natural Light

Shine a light on low lit rooms and realise the potential waiting to be unleashed. No longer dusty and forgotten, only to gather clutter, these rooms simply need a little love to transform them from dark and dreary to vibrant and homely. From your wallpaper, to the furnishings you choose; there are plenty of ways to spruce up rooms that lack natural light.
Metallic walls
Rooms adorned with subtle micas and embossed glitter flood the room with twinkling light that refuses to be ignored. Casting an enchanting aura of opulence over your room and highlighting all of those hidden corners, our range of shimmering motifs have something to suit all styles.
Our gorgeous Goddess Dawn wallpaper comes straight from the spirited forests that appeared in your childhood fairytales. Look a little closer at this stunning bracken pattern and you’ll notice the haunting faces peering back at you. Perfect for communal areas as a great talking point, the foil shimmer welcomes light into the room to guide you through the undergrowth.

However, you don’t have to stick to a silver-toned colour palette, our Majestic Teal wallpaper brings a classic sense of royalty to any room, whilst reflecting light from the stunning golden backdrop. Providing instant illumination from your lamps and what little light is coming in through the windows, this wonderful motif captures your eye and invites you into a room you’ve always dreamed of.
Colour pop walls
It’s not just metallics that can invite light to dance through your home; a wash of colour can evoke fond summer memories and bring an enlightening feel to your humble abode.
Take, for example, our Spirit Red wallpaper. These stunning watercolour flowers sit on a bright white backdrop, giving your home a blushing touch of red. This charming print embodies hazy summer days. 
A timeless style, floral motifs never seem to age, offering you the chance to savour fresh cut flowers every day.
Accessorise your walls
What’s a wallpaper without a few finishing touches? From abstract art to large scale photographic canvases, wall art can complement any style to give your room that distinctive edge that really makes it yours.
Why not adorn your walls with a few extra details to flick the switch on low lit walls?
