1. Add Mirrors

m

By placing a mirror on the wall adjacent to a window or opposite a window will not only reflect light and views from the window, but it will make it seem like you have more windows on the wall.

2. Integrate Reflective Surfaces

r

Reflective surfaces like a back-painted glass back-splash will bounce light around and give the impression of more light when windows may be limited.

3. Use Translucent Shades & Material

t

Avoid heavy, light-blocking window materials and treatments at the windows, and instead opt for translucent shades that provide privacy but still allow light into the space. It will give a soft glow, ensuring light still bounces around.

4. Paint the Ceilings Lighter than the Walls
