How to get more from a light source?

Best Answer

If you want get more light to specific spot - use "Mirror board behind bulb".

But if you want to feel that room is more brighten, then you have to add more light sources. Feeling of brightness come from various sources: lamps, walls, objects in room. E.g. if there are lot of shadows, room may not look bright. If walls are black/dark grey, it again may not look bright.
