Lighting is a key element in most environments, especially your apartment living space. Lack of lighting can cause a space to feel small and dark and significantly impact your overall health. When it comes to lighting in an apartment, natural light is one of the best and cheapest options for making a space appear larger, brighter, and more appealing. Listed below are three helpful tips for carefully and strategically enhancing the natural lighting in your apartment.
Adding mirrors to your apartment is one of the best ways to enhance the lighting. Mirrors are extremely helpful in redirecting the lighting in a room, enhancing the room’s lighting, space, and aesthetic without making major alterations that can change or damage your apartment’s flooring or walls. Purchasing the right-sized mirror and strategically placing it in your apartment allows light to bounce around the room, creating the visual of an open space while enhancing the room’s natural lighting making a space appear brighter and larger.
The transparency and color of your curtains can play a significant role in determining how bright or dark a room can be. Although darker curtains help enhance the privacy of your apartment, choosing curtains that are more transparent or lightly colored allows sunlight to peek through your windows, providing your apartment with warmth and natural lighting. If you’re concerned about lack of privacy, sheer curtains are a great option because they give you privacy without sacrificing natural light.
Along with curtains, the color and placement of your furniture can impact your apartment’s lighting. If your furniture is on the darker side, you can add accessories, including pillows, blankets, and rugs that are on a more neutral or a lighter color pallet to offset the dark colors of your furniture pieces distracting your eyes. You can also enhance your apartment’s lighting by angling your furniture towards natural light sources such as windows and balconies, expanding your view. This is especially helpful for brightening your apartment’s living room and bedroom.
