We all know how important light is when it comes to making a room bigger and brighter! However, having any light isn’t going to make the room look brighter. Rooms with a single light source might make it look two-dimensional and boring. Go for layered lighting to create a dramatic impact. Additional lights like a floor lamp or a table lamp will surely elevate the overall appearance of the room.

4. Consider the Ceiling
