How to Brighten up Your Windowless Bathroom

If your bathroom doesn’t have a window, you’ll understand that it can often get extremely dark and dreary in there. Windows do a lot more than just provide a brilliant view to the outside; they provide a brilliant natural light. They also open up the room, making it seem a lot bigger than it might be.

However, if your bathroom design hasn’t allowed for a window – don’t worry!

Lack of natural light doesn’t have to be a problem.  There are plenty of ways in which you can brighten up your bathroom so that it’s a space that you want to spend time in. Here are a few of our suggestions for getting that “dazzle” that all bathrooms should have!


Add Mirrors

A well placed mirror doesn’t just make a small space appear bigger; it can also add much needed light to your bathroom. Therefore, adding mirrors can create depth in your bathroom and increase how much light is reflected across the room. Full length mirrors are the best – they reflect the floor and give the illusion of more light and space.


Choose White

Windowless bathrooms definitely benefit from sticking with white when it comes to the decor. It helps to reflect light and make the room feel and look a lot more spacious. It doesn’t mean that you’re stuck painting the walls white; you can simply choose white bathroom features.

Add Some Colour

Whilst it’s better to stick to white when it comes to the floors and walls, we suggest adding a pop of colour wherever you can. Swap your white towels for blue ones, or add some bright flowers or colourful picture frames. The little bits of colour will brighten up the room even more. Don’t go too crazy though; stick to one bright colour that you really like.


Use Soft Lighting

It can be tempting to choose bright lights to make up for the fact that you’re not receiving any natural light. Unfortunately, harsh bright lights can actually make the room appear a lot darker. You should choose soft lighting that emits light to different locations in the bathroom. Having more light sources in the room will definitely open it up and make it seem brighter.
