There’s nothing more inviting than a bright room full of natural light, but not every room has that luxury. Rooms without natural light can still look bright and inviting if you use the right tactics. Use these methods to brighten any room.
 

· Mirrors

Mirrors create the illusion of more space and distribute light more evenly throughout a room, making them a valuable tool for brightening a room.

Strategically place your mirror near windows and other light sources to take advantage of the light that you already have and get the most out of it. Mirrors with adjustable LED light features can also serve as great additional light source for a room that has limited natural light or limited room for light fixtures.

Try to utilize other reflective surfaces as well in your interior design, such as gold and silver mini sculptures or accents throughout the room.

· Different types of lighting

Use multiple light sources to add depth to the brightness of your room. To illuminate your room from every angle, you might consider layering a directional light like a reading lamp, a lamp with a lamp shade that diffuses light across the room, and an overhead light.

· Light colored furniture and floors

Try using bright colors to emphasize light in your room even further. Bright rugs, artwork, and other decor can not only create a welcoming contrast with the other more neutral colors in your room, it can also make the space feel brighter.

· Bright colors and patterns

Try using bright colors to emphasize light in your room even further. Bright rugs, artwork, and other decor can not only create a welcoming contrast with the other more neutral colors in your room, it can also make the space feel brighter.

· Simple layout

While it may be tempting to add as many light colored and bright decorations as you can, try to keep it simple. Minimizing clutter lets the things you have shine. For example, choose one or two pieces of artwork rather than crowding your wall with a collage. The negative space will help reflect light and brighten your room.

· Clean windows

Clean your windows often to get as much light in as possible. When a window is a main light source in your room, smudges and blemishes become very noticeable. Clean windows create a pristine look that emanates throughout your room.

· Transparent curtains

Heavy curtains can weigh down the feel of your room. Opt for lightweight or translucent curtains to optimize natural light as much as possible. This lightweight feeling will provide an additional brightness to your room.
