  • Paints and light colors: If something can help to take advantage of the natural light of your apartment, it is the light and white colors that we use when painting our walls and ceilings, as well as the colors you choose in your furniture. This is advised because light or white colors multiply or reflect the incoming natural light, unlike the darker ones that require light and power.

  • Mirror, mirror: A classic of classics to use in your decoration. If you want to take advantage of the natural light of your apartment, you must have mirrors, because they reflect the light instead of absorbing it.
