A room without windows does not have to be a dark and dreary place. With the right decorating tactics, you can add light to the room. Use the following tips to brighten up your windowless rooms and create a really special décor:
Mix and Match Lighting Styles
Artificial lighting is essential in a room without windows, but you have to be careful about the way you use it. If you only have one kind of lighting in the room, it could actually have the adverse effect and make it seem drearier. Use a few different lighting styles to brighten up the room. Use a few different kinds of lamps of different heights in conjunction with overhead lighting to really open up the room.
Create the Illusion of a Window
You do not have to have an actual window to trick the eye into thinking you have one. Find a few mirrors that are shaped like windows and place them across from one of your lamps. The mirrors will catch the light and reflect it back into the room, which gives the illusion of an actual window.
Choose Accessories Carefully
Add some pops of color and pizazz to the space with artwork and other accessories that really brighten up the room. Stick to lighter, brighter color palettes to help the eye focus on these areas. Use different color at different heights to trick the eye into thinking there is more space. This visual distraction helps you forget that there is not a window in the room and it provides plenty of brightness for the space.

Decorating your home allows you to show off your style and create a comfortable space. The right furniture can turn any space into a warm and inviting place for friends and family to enjoy. If you are sticking to a budget, it is important to know how to save money while shopping for new furniture. Follow these tips to enhance your home without going overboard:
Work With What You Have
New furniture can instantly upgrade the appearance of your home. But that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all of your current furniture to gain this benefit. Inspect your current furnishings to determine which ones are in good shape and which ones you still find appealing. Keep your favorite furnishings and then find new pieces to place beside them. You can create a totally new atmosphere in each room by investing in a few quality pieces of new furniture.
Visit a Consignment Shop
You don’t have to spend a fortune to get beautiful new furniture for your home—you can stay within budget by visiting a consignment shop. These stores offer amazing deals on furniture, making it easy to upgrade your home without spending too much. Consignment shop selections include furniture from local homeowners, builders, model homes, and factory closeouts. You can choose from an assortment of furniture sizes and styles, allowing you to find the perfect pieces to show off your personality in every room of your home.
Look For Quality Items
One of the easiest ways to save money while furniture shopping is to select quality items. When you invest in high quality pieces, you can depend on them for years to come. That means you won’t have to waste money every few years getting new furniture to replace the pieces that break or get worn out. Choose durable pieces that you can enjoy for a long time.

Are you struggling to make the most of your home space? You can give your family members the space they need by utilizing multipurpose rooms. Instead of having a one room serve just as a nursery, double your space by pairing the crib with a small bed to create a nursery and guestroom.
Watch this video to learn how to create a room that your baby and your guests can both enjoy. Start by placing the crib in a spot where you can see it even from outside of the room. Place the guest bed on the opposite side of the room to keep these areas separate and avoid cluttering the space.
