Not ready to completely give up on your privacy? Instead of having heavy drapes blocking the sun, opt for translucent shades to still have your privacy while allowing the sun to peak in.
Bring in Reflective Surfaces
Not only are mirrors a great way to lighten up a room, any reflective surface can have the same effect. Try adding a glass table top or shiny decor to your living space.
Choose Light Paint Colors
Are you more drawn to darker colors? If so, try to lighten things up when choosing paint colors. The lighter colors will soften your living space and make a room appear like there is more natural light.

Change up your Doors
If your doors are currently solid, consider changing them out for a door with a window. This is a simple way to add more natural light without adding new windows to your home.
