Clever Way To Make Your Basement Seem Brighter – Design You Trust

Clever Way To Make Your Basement Seem Brighter


A woman decided to do something about her basement that lacked sunlight. So, she built a fake window with ‘artificial sunlight’ created by LED lights. Looks believable.

h/t: reddit, izismile

She spent just $150 on the project.

She used 2 LED grow lights from the hardware store.

A frame with an acrylic cover acts as the false window.

A cornstarch matte was used to diffuse the light through the plastic.

She hung simple curtains to make everything more cozy.

The finishing touches? Plastic molding to create a frame.

The final result!
