You Can Never Have Enough Light
If your living room can receive an abundance of natural light, don’t block it out with blinds or dark curtains. Open them up and let all the sunlight into your room that you can. This home hack naturally helps the room look bigger and also gives it a fresh and natural look that makes you want to spend as much time in there as possible.
If you don’t have large windows that let in a lot of natural light, do what you can and turn to other ways to brighten the room. You can focus on lighter colors and add a few lamps to help keep the space bright during the day.
