  1. Glass panels: Replace an opening with a glass panel, both in the facade and in the interior, in this way you guarantee a better distribution of light without forgetting any corner.
  2. Rack: An elegant way to get light to areas of low natural light, such as kitchens. You just have to take advantage of them for a breakfast area or support surface.
  3. Light chimneys: With the creation of a system of mirrors, light can be brought to dark spaces. To install these systems the area should be near a terrace or the roof of the house.
  4. Without obstacles: It releases the light inputs of large and tall elements that prevent light from flowing freely. The curtains should be light and should only dim the light, preferably in light tones.
  5. Distribution: Very large or very tall items such as bookcases, cupboards, and the like should rest against the wall, leaving the auxiliary and lighter spaces and functions separate within a room.
  6. "Invisible" furniture: Are those elements that go unnoticed against a wall, as if it were a chameleon, and also act as reflectors of light.
  7. Clear tones: It is well known that these reflect the light better, while the intense ones absorb it. Learn to choose neutral tones for walls, floors and ceilings.
  8. Prints: Use fine stripes and small general motives in pastel shades that do not distort light. Reserve strong colors and large drawings for cushions and accessories.
  9. Textures: It uses natural fibers such as cotton, silk or linen, in addition to giving freshness they provide a smooth texture, which reflects a lot of light.

  1. When it comes to developing your decor and optimizing the low luminosity, it will depend on the openings, their size and, of course, their geographical layout, since we will be able to obtain optimum luminosity at dawn, dusk or a simple glow during a large part of the day.
    Among the ideas to optimize the luminosity are the mirrors, you can arrange a mirror of respectable dimensions in the angle of action of the incoming light and make it redirect the light to the less fortunate sectors.
    The leed luminaires can help you in a subtle way, they are selected because they are economical, they do not generate or release heat and, of course, their consumption is minimal, you can decide to embed them in walls or hide them in shelves in the darkest sectors.
    The colors undoubtedly are decisive, do not lean towards dark tones or colors that absorb the low light, lean towards whites in all their tones that will undoubtedly be more efficient.
    The tonalities are varied and we find among them some that imitate very efficiently natural light, they can even be arranged inside the wall with a decoration that imitates a window, something similar to the technological solutions that predispose beautiful landscapes with leed screens which they tend to be a great solution in small, high-end spaces.
    If possible, remember that there are solutions in very original and economic openings such as the polycarbonate used for swimming pool domes, which can form a nice piece on your wall, which prevents external vision is matched with the decoration and greatly desire in brightness

  4. Hello
    We bought an apartment where the hall of bedrooms and a room are very dark.
    The room has a single entrance of natural light that is the exit door to the interior courtyard, this door is in glass. But our apartment is on the first floor and there is very little light coming in ...
    I've been studying about lighting, because in the day it's going to play turning on the light in the room and I do not like it, so I want to think of the way that when we turn on the light it does not seem artificial if not natural light ....
    Reading this article, I find the theme of the light chimney interesting ... since the patio is next to this room ....
    But I do not know how to do ???
    Can you give me ideas to solve this problem?

    Thank you,
