Mirrors for More Light in a Dark Apartment

Our new apartment is nice - but dark - so I have been collecting mirrors of different kinds to arrange on the walls. I have 5 little ones grouped together in a narrow space and others of different sizes around the room to reflect the light, along with a large one on one wall. I also positioned light-colored pictures with glass to bounce back as much light as possible. I've gotten most of them in thrift shops, so it hasn't been too costly and it really makes a difference.

I have a few mirrors on my wall and I use them, with small shelves, to reflect light and heat back into the room in winter.

make sure you plan it out a bit for each room. Just adding 'more' light is not necessarily the best answer you need to plan where you need what types of light. Have a look here it might help - http://lighting  ing-by-area.html
