I'm an interior stylist – how to make rooms with no natural light look brighter, and it’s NOT about painting it white | The Sun

AN INTERIOR stylist has revealed the best paint colour to go for if you have a room with no natural light.

Instead of going for the bog standard white, Jess suggests opting for something more vibrant – which will help bounce light around the room.

She took to TikTok to share her "top tip for rooms with no natural light", as she began: "Did you know it's a common misconception that small spaces with no natural light are best painted white? 

"White actually highlights dark corners and creates shadows marking the space appear darker.

Jess then opened a tin of yellow paint, as she continued: "Instead, go for a vibrant shade which will help bounce artificial light around the room."

Concluding her video, she showed the transformation of the hallway after she used the yellow paint, with the room looking lighter, brighter and airier.

"White is out, colour is in," she captioned her video.

"When I saw yellow I was like nope. But now I'm converted," one person commented on the video.
