Lighting is very important to help create a comfortable and inviting living space. But not everyone has natural lighting. If you don’t have it, there are several ways to give the impression of light. Try using mirrors placed in areas that reflect the light you do have. Use light tones on your walls, furniture, and other items. High gloss items are also helpful to give the impression of light. Use plenty of artificial lights. Add green plants that require low light.
- Reflective surfaces like mirrors, glossy paint, and light colored walls and furniture reflect any natural light that you may have.
- Use full spectrum light bulbs in your light fixtures. They provide artificial light that’s the closest to natural light for rooms without the needed windows.
- Get some plants that appreciate low level light, like snake plants. They’ll help to clean the air and give a more natural feel to the room.
