As we all know, natural light is what makes many of our rooms tick. Countless studies have shown over the years the effects on both our medical and physical health – yet not all of us are fortunate enough to have a room full of glazing.
In fact, in some cases at least, some rooms don’t have any windows. While all can feel lost initially, with a few quick interior hacks you can still spruce your room up and make it feel utterly inviting. Today’s article will now look at four ways in which you can make this happen.
Use mirrors to bounce light in
Mirrors are a fantastic way to bounce light into a room that doesn’t have any windows. While they do require a little bit of effort to set up (depending on your choice of manufacturer, of course), they’re a great way to make a room feel more spacious.
The best thing about them is that they’re incredibly cheap. You can pick up a mirror at any of your local home stores for under $15, so you don’t have to spend an absolute fortune to get the look you want.
Use lamps to create a cozier feel
One of the most common ways to make a windowless room feel cozy, and not suffocating, is by using lamps. These are great for making a room feel homely and warm, and they’re also great for creating an intimate atmosphere in your living space.
The best thing about lamps is that they come in all shapes and sizes, so you can use them in all sorts of settings. From traditional floor lamps, to contemporary designs, there’s something out there for everyone.
Incorporate some greenery
Whether you’re looking to add some greenery to your living space or just looking for an alternative way to bring some natural light into your room, adding some greenery is always a great idea. Plants are great for adding color and life to any room, and they’re also great for helping you relax and unwind after a long day at work.

Our final suggestion is to turn to wallpaper. Wallpaper is one of the most popular ways in which people have been able to spruce up their rooms without using lighting. If you are looking for a way in which you can really make your room stand out, then wallpapering it will be a great idea.
With wallpaper, there are so many different types that you can choose from and this means that there’s something for everyone – whether it’s floral patterns or abstract designs. The added texture can also provide some extra ‘oomph’ to your room and allow it to work without that apparently elusive use of natural light.
