If your apartment doesn’t get much natural light, don’t fret. There are easy ways to brighten up your apartment by simplying adding various décor pieces.

Here are five tips to bring some light back into your space.

Add plants (Faux Potted Fiddle Leaf Tree $299)
Nothing brightens up a room like plants. There are so many great plants that don’t require direct sunlight to thrive including succulents, fiddle leaf trees, and palm trees. If you really can’t be bothered with real plants, opt for artificial ones.

Embrace white furniture (West Elm Finn Sofa $1,199)
The easiest way to brighten up your home is by adding white furniture. Try a couch or dining room table — the bigger the item, the more it will light up your apartment.

Change up the lighting (Threshold LED Lamp With Marble Base $44.99)
Add more sources of light where you can. Whether you add a table lamp on your desk or a standing lamp by the couch, white light bulbs over yellow ones will ensure a brighter room.

Throw in some bright colors (Anthropologie Shareen Pillow $98-$128)
If you have dark wooden floors, a bright colorful rug can help draw attention away from the darkness. The same goes for accent pillows — pick more vibrant colors and patterns to really let your white couch shine.

Bring on the glass (Project 62 Triangle Mirror Set $24.99)
A great cost-effective way to create more light is by hanging some mirrors. Add a large mirror in your room or use glass tables and vases — the idea is to create more surfaces for light to bounce off of.
