How To Add More Light to Your Home

We all dream of living in homes that are flooded with natural light. The amount of natural light in your rooms can really affect your mood. So, it’s natural that bright rooms make us feel happier, more alive and vibrant. How wonderful would it be if each room you walked in was bathed in the warm, golden glow of sunlight? Unfortunately, we may be able to choose the size of our house, but it’s difficult to decide how much natural light gets into it.

No need to give up just yet, though! There a few things you can do from your end to optimize whatever natural light you do happen to get. The following suggestions should help you get started.

Add Windows Wherever Possible:

A couple of windows in your living room and bedroom aren’t sufficient to catch all the natural light. Add huge windows wherever possible, including the kitchen, stairwells, landings, and any other dark spots you can identify. If that can’t be done, consider skylights.

Have Glass Doors:

Huge, solid wooden doors might look beautiful, but they tend to shut the light out of our homes. Consider having glass doors, instead. If privacy is a concern, you could go in for reeded or etched glass instead of the clear one. This can be done inside, too, in the other rooms of the house. French windows can really open up space and allow the light to filter from one room to the other.

Use Mirrors:

Placing a mirror opposite or adjacent to a window can help magnify the amount of light streaming into a room. When kept opposite a window, it will reflect not only the light but also the views from it. When placed adjacent, the mirror will mimic the window and make it seem like you have more of them.
