There is nothing better on a lovely, warm summers day than natural light peering into your home. It makes us feel ten times better seeing the sunshine, keeping us healthy by supporting us with some extra vitamin D (most of us living in England through the winter need it!)
However, getting natural light into a dark room can be difficult. At Clear View, our Yorkshire based bi-folding door experts know first-hand the benefits of natural light, and the best way to get it into your home. Here’s our top decor tips for you to follow to get some natural light into your home:
1) Clean windows! – It sounds stupid, but you have no idea how many Yorkshire homes our bi-folding door experts have been to that have been complaining about the lack of natural light but have had dirty windows. Mud can actually block a lot of sunlight that can make a darker room look that way even in the summer months. We recommend cleaning your windows regularly, or hiring a window cleaner to help you throughout the warmer months.
2) Add in bi-folding doors – Ok, we could be a bit biased on this one, but bi-folding doors are an excellent way to bring in more natural light in any downstairs room. Our Yorkshire-based experts have been installing these for years, and we can guarantee that all of our customers will agree with us when we say that our products are perfect for the summer months.
3) Cut down your garden – Sometimes plants and trees may be blocking light from reaching your home. Try to avoid planting large trees or bushes at the side of your property that gets the most light.
4) Get more mirrors – Not many people know this, but a real budget way of increasing the natural light in your home is to buy mirrors to hep reflect the light that does get in. They are the perfect solution if you don’t have the budget for bi-folding doors, plus they make rooms look so much bigger by reflecting the light! It’s a win win.
