No matter the style of your home, it’s good to have a flow of natural light throughout it. Without this natural light, your home will feel dark and unpleasant – making you not want to spend time relaxing in it. To ensure that you make the most out of the natural light, we have laid out the top changes that you can make so that your home is the most welcoming that it can possibly be.
Invest in Velux Windows
Velux windows are great and suit almost any room of the home. They will let natural light in, allowing your home to feel cosy and inviting. These stunning windows are also easy to open (allowing for lots of fresh air to circulate within your home) but they are also watertight and have ThermoTechnology – meaning that you will spend less money on heating, lowering your energy bills.
Mirrors are a great way of not only adding a spacious feel into your home but reflecting natural light too. No matter what room you have them in, they will welcome the light into it so that it feels far more relaxing and open. With a variety of styles available, you will be able to find one that matches the interior of your home whilst making it look aesthetically pleasing.
Paint the walls in light colours
It’s a fact that light colours will reflect light, and paint is no different. When decorating your house, opt for a light colour palette. Not only will this make your home look better, but it will ensure that natural light is in abundance. Whether you choose white, cream, peach or another light wallpaper/paint colour, you will have a home that truly shines when the weather is at its best.
Invest in reflective tiles
Whether you are redecorating your kitchen or your bathroom, a perfect way of guaranteeing plenty of natural light is through reflective tiles – and in particular tiles that are white, cream or another light colour. These reflective tiles are a clever way of bringing much-needed light into your home, meaning that you can enjoy the room for longer. Varying from the budget-friendly to the luxurious, there are many reflective tiles available on the market.
Purchase light furniture
Just as with wall colours, lighter-coloured furniture will reflect the natural light giving your home a more spacious feel. Complementing the walls, tiles, mirrors and other features within your home, the pieces of light furniture will allow you to enjoy the light for longer throughout the year. A simple yet effective change, no matter what piece of furniture you choose to update, it will improve the aesthetics within your interior.
Remove any green blockages
If you not only want to add natural light but also want to make the most of your garden views, it’s a good idea to cut down any greenery outside your home – especially if you have a large bush or tree obstructing your property. From the moment that you cut this down you will start to realise the drastic change that it can make within your home.
