Employ Mirrors to Reflect Light
Mirrors can add so much to your decor. Not only are they functional, but they can be beautiful pieces of art while they also help you skillfully reflect light right where you need it. It's a great way to brighten things up without using electricity.
Choose Lighter Colors and Transparent Furniture
Dark color schemes and furniture can actually absorb tons of light and make things feel darker. You can choose a lighter pallette which will help more than you might expect. Additionaly, adding transparent furniture and objects will allow light to pass through and brighten up the rooms.
Utilize Fairy Lights and Battery Operated Candles
Fairy lights and candles are a great way to brighten things up while simultaneously creating a romantic atmosphere. String some lights around the bedframe or mirror for a subtle yet elegant ambiance.
Aim Your Lights at the Wall or Ceilings
Sometimes electric lights can just get lost if pointed aimlessly. Be sure to aim your lights at the wall or ceiling so the light can bounce off, giving the room a warm glow.
Opt for Minimalistic, Low Furniture
When you opt for minimalistic furniture that sits close to the ground, you can help prevent the casting of shadows. It will allow light to travel farther which will result in a brighter room.
