Most basement apartments have no windows or small ones, creating a dark and cramped space. It will create yin energy that is harmful to humans, so always try to balance it with Yang elements.

If the natural lighting is out of the questions, use lamps or Himalayan lamps to compensate for the lack of lighting.

2. Choose the right choice of color

Avoid dark color and brighten your basement room with light-colored walls. It will give a more spacious and open feel so that you will not feel depressed and blocke.
