One of the most challenging design issues can be finding ways to brighten up a space without breaking the bank. When you search for tips online, some of the most common results are, “Add windows!” or “Open up a wall!”, but that’s not an option for most of us, especially renters.
So today I decided to round up some DIY ways you can transform your room to make it feel lighter, brighter and more spacious. From using furniture with a lighter footprint to semi-sheer window treatments, mirrors, and closed storage, this list will help you transform your space on your budget and your terms. Even small changes like an extra mirror can have an impact, so try one out and see how it works for you! xo, grace
[UPDATE: I just heard the heartbreaking news about the events in South Carolina. I just wanted to say that all of us here at DS are appalled and are sending our love and thoughts to all the families affected by this tragedy.]
