- Opt for light-colored furnishings. Lighter colors, like whites, soft grays and other neutrals, give the illusion of more light. If you want a splash of color, consider yellow or bright green.
- Keep indoor lighting to a minimum. Rather than relying on one overhead light, use several light sources spread throughout the room.
- Position your furnishings strategically. Angle your desk toward the light to brighten your workspace. Place a mirror in the hallway to reflect light into a side room. Position your bed by an east-facing window to wake up naturally with the morning sun.
Once you begin to bring more light into your home, you’ll likely feel more energized, productive, and overall, just plain good.
