Enjoy natural lighting in your living room decor

Be careful not to block your living room’s light intakes. Small rooms tend to be darker and more stifling, but if it’s well lit, this problem won’t exist.

Avoid dark curtains and closed colors in your decor, for example. You can also invest in lighter and more fluid fabrics, which allow, even with the curtains closed, a little light to enter the room.
