Natural light is an underrated yet crucial feature in any home. A lighter and brighter area can create the illusion of more space and make your Yorkshire home appear bigger. As experts in aluminium windows and doors, here at Clear View we know glazing can transform your home and have outlined just how below.
Update your windows
The simplest thing you can do to increase natural light and make your home appear brighter and bigger, is to update your windows. By replacing old bulky frames with new slim line, thermally-efficient aluminium windows you are maximising every inch of available space. As well as increasing natural light this will make your windows, and therefore your room, appear larger.
Rethink your patio doors
Is your patio door design really making the most of the transition between your indoor and outdoor space? Try getting rid of French doors with larger frames for a more modern design such as bi-folding or sliding doors. Bi-folding doors are rapidly increasing in popularity for good reason. When open they create a clear, wide space to make your home appear even bigger by fully incorporating it with your outdoor living area.
Sliding doors are even more successful in providing an unobstructed view when closed. The strength of aluminium doors allows you to have wider glass panes. The large view this offers can make your space appear bigger all year round whatever the weather.
Look to the sky (light)
Even the darkest areas of your home can be transformed with a little help from a cleverly placed roof lantern or skylight. In a low ceilinged room a roof lantern can create the impression of height, whereas a skylight can inject natural light into a dark corner, creating the illusion of space.
