  • Mirrors, use mirrors to direct the sunlight from other rooms

  • They have these things called solar tubes, that I think you can get at Home Depot or Lowes. They bring in natural light but at a fraction of the cost of a skylight.

  • Use layers of light, meaning a ceiling light, a floor lamp, and a table lamp to light up different "layers" in sections of the room. It really would depend on how big the room is. A tiny room wouldn't need all of that. I also use mirrors to reflect the light and make it seem "bigger" without using any additional electricity. Good luck!

  • I saw a fake window the other day on one of the home improvement shows. They hung them in a basement with no windows. It is some kind of LED light (or something like that) and they hung sheers over the front. It looked just like a real window!
