Light, airy rooms are welcoming spaces to be in and can help to lift moods as well as create a welcoming atmosphere. Unfortunately, rooms are not always as bright as they could be either due to poor lighting or limited daylight being able to enter. However, there are several steps you can take to bring more light into your home:
- Use mirrors
Mirrors are great at reflecting light around the room which will help the space to look brighter as well as make it appear bigger too. For maximum effect strategically place mirrors where natural daylight can bounce off them or next to lamps or lights.
- Think about lighting
Whilst it’s important to maximise natural light, it’s also important to ensure there are enough light fittings in the room. As well as a main light for the space also consider lamps for reading as well as for creating ambience in the evening.
If there is limited natural light entering the room, then it is worth thinking about investing in new windows which will more readily allow sunlight in. Modern, aluminium frames can be extremely narrow, meaning that the size of pane, and the amount of light can be maximised, creating a brighter living space.
- Glass doors
Another way that more light can enter is through the addition of glass doors such as bi-folding or sliding ones. Internal doors which incorporate glass panels, rather than solid wood can also increase the amount of light, whilst still providing a sound barrier between rooms.
