Open wideNot such a quick fix, but if your house feels gloomy a lot of the time, consider adding a window. Here, light is pulled in from a skylight on the landing, but there are lots of options to consider, from sun pipes to high, narrow panels of glass. When choosing any new window, remember, the less chunky the frame, the more available light can flow through into the house.

Say yes to a stairwell to heavenAnother great use for roof windows is to flood daylight down into a stairwell. So many homes have dark hallways and landings, and with the installation of a roof window in just the right position, those dark staircases can be a thing of the past.

Install a light wellStairs can be notoriously dark areas of the house, unless you’re lucky enough to have a large window. One way to combat this is to install a glass roof light like the one shown here. This adds height and drama to the stairway, and brings daylight down through the house.

Install a roof lightThe hallways of some terraced homes have no natural light at all. To brighten up such an area, remove the ceiling at the very top of the stairs and insert a roof window into the slope of the roof above. This will instantly brighten things up. If you’re about to embark on a loft extension, it’s the ideal time to make such an addition.Find out all you need to know about extending your loft

Open up the roofStairways, particularly in terraced houses, can be lacking in natural light. If you’re planning a big renovation, consider adding a light well, skylight or roof lantern to flood natural light from above down the landing and stairs during the day. And what better light than that cast by the moon to add a little moody sparkle after dark?

Spread a little sunshineIn this upstairs hall, a skylight lets sunlight flow into what would have been a dark landing. It’s not a quick fix, but consider asking your builder whether it’s possible. Other solutions are ‘sun tunnels’, which funnel light into gloomy spots. It’s not just the skylight that lifts this space, though: luxe purple carpet just on the stairs is a smart way to introduce colour without it becoming overwhelming. I also love the bright yellow print.Find out other ways a skylight could transform your home

Update the traditional Shapely spindles are a feature of traditional staircases from the Victorian era, but they can still be given a contemporary feel with a coat of paint in an on-trend shade, such as this dark grey. Teamed with velvety purple carpet, this staircase looks beautifully up to date.

4. I like the pop of purple that they used. I like how it brings out the pop in the room, but I also like how eclectic the house is.
