For example, a giant wall or floor mirror near the window can really amplify natural lighting. Placing table lamps or a floor lamp next to a mirror can have a similar effect, for the best result, make sure that the lamp emits ambient light so that it is not too bright when reflected from the mirror.

7-choose beige or light gray curtains

Choose light curtains on the sides of the windows. You can choose either blackout curtains or light curtains - in both cases, just make sure that the color is beige or light gray.For blackout curtains, a very light gray color is considered .

8-choose simple and low-to-the-floor furniture

Stuffing an already faded room with oversized furniture will cast more shadows, resulting in a darker feeling room. To avoid this, be sure to purchase simple furniture located on the floor. Determine the maximum height of your furniture and make sure that each piece falls below the specified height.And this means deleting the bookcase, no matter how beautiful it is. Leave a lot of space between the pieces of furniture - empty areas will save themselves for lighting opportunities.This philosophy is the essence of mid - century modern design and it is likely that the style has become very popular-it plays well with lighting.

9-don't overdo the painting on the wall

A common mistake among new designers is trying to do too much. This is especially true when it comes to decorative accessories such as art. Even if you live in a mansion, as long as the room suffers from lighting, its walls should be as bare as possible so that all the light can be reflected. One large dark wall art or a collection of photos can really hinder your efforts to illuminate the space. For a dimly lit room, choose a maximum of 3 pieces of either a wall mirror, a light fabric / wall hanging, or light-colored wall art that sets the mood and is enough.
