Reflecting Light

Reflecting Light

How do we recycle light?

Let’s be honest, most of us love light, especially in our decorating. Soft even light helps to make our rooms look alive and fresh.

Of course, we can increase lighting by letting in more natural light and by installing artificial lighting.

But we can also cheat by creating possibilities for the light that is present to be reflected over and over again—recycling the light.

If you want more light in your room consider: the safe practice of painting surfaces a matt natural white, or a bold approach, by painting using a high gloss.

Decorate using metal surfaces for tables, chests or countertops or decorate using glass objects.

Select highly polished flooring.

And or course use mirrors to bounce the light all around the room.
