If you have a source of natural light, then let that natural light in your room and the room will automatically get connected to the outside world.

MIRRORS SHOULD BE PROPERLY PLACED
Mirrors make the room look bigger. With the help of a focal point, and then arrange the mirrors to get an illusion of depth.
