Tips for lighting a room without window

Everyone would love to have a house with natural light in abundance but the sad reality is that sometimes we find places with low light, such as lows of a house, interior rooms and garages. For this reason we give you some tips to bring light to your space even if it lacks windows.

Unsuspected sources of natural light

First of all we have to ask ourselves an essential question: are we sure that we can not have natural light in any way? Although there is no direct light in the room, we can obtain it from other places, such as adjacent rooms. If there is, we can open an interior window or place a translucent panel to pass light from one place to another. The same can be done with the roof in the case of basements and garages, opening skylights.

Colours and materials
Once we have achieved that all possible light enters the rooms, it is time to maximize it through the most appropriate colors and materials. As is logical, light colors reflect more light, so it may even be advisable to paint the floor of any of these tones. Even so, we can use dark accents to highlight the brightness of the base light colors. As inspiration, you can base yourself on the Scandinavian style, which usually uses this type of palette with mastery. As for the materials, we will follow the same guide as with the colors: we will choose reflective materials, like everything that is metallic, shiny or glass. For example, a mirror will help to take advantage of the light and will give depth to the space, avoiding the claustrophobic effect.

To be or to seem
Finally, it is always interesting to play with perception through the elements of space and with light to attract the gaze to strategic places. For example, we can place some curtains even if there is no window in order to give a feeling of depth. You can even find LED lights with a window shape with completely realistic results. In the same way, a painting or photograph of the exterior can also help to create the window effect to the exterior.
