4 Remodel and Design Tips to Flood Your Home With Natural Light


Winter’s chill has come to a close. Now it’s time to stop hunkering down to escape the cold and get outside to bathe in the sun’s enwrapping warmth. If you’re more of a homebody who feels comfortable indoors, there are ways to enjoy all the beauty of spring without having to go outside.

Adding more natural light opens up your home and gives it a radiant flair. Plus, the extra lighting will also help you save electricity costs because you won’t have to flip on a light switch throughout the day. If you’re tired of feeling like you live in a cave, these four simple tips will help you get the sunlight you crave from the comfort of your home.

 

  1. Add more windows.

    Windows are crucial to flooding your home with light. The best part is that you can install windows in various shapes and sizes to fit any room, and you can never have too many of them. Having at least one window in every room of your home is ideal. For your kitchen, living room and bathrooms, however, they are an absolute must, as these are the rooms guests are most likely to frequent, so it’s important to fill them with a welcoming warmth.

  2. Install glass doors.

    Glass doors will allow light to spread throughout your house. If there’s a room that has no direct access, the light will still be able to transfer into it through the doors. Having these transparent barriers will also open up your home and give it the illusion of having more space.

  3. Hang up more mirrors.

    Mirrors are the perfect trick to reflect and spread more light. Whatever you lack in windows you can make up for in mirrors. Having strategically placed mirrors can disperse sunlight and, like glass doors, create the illusion of more space.


  4. Get skylights.

    Skylights are an effective fix for brightening up a dark room. For any rooms on the top floor of your home, especially an attic, skylights work best. You may not want some of your rooms to be cluttered with windows and mirrors, so the skylight is the perfect solution for subtlety adding more light.
