Tips on maximizing your home’s natural light

Natural light in a space can do wonders for the home. To get the maximum natural light inside your room or home, windows are the perfect option. There are a lot of creative ways of discretely adding more light into a small light-challenged space. This can be accomplished with artificial light (particularly using bulbs that more closely mimic the temperature of daylight). Using artificial light in this way will help boost the natural light you have. Thereby making it feel like there is more of it.

Are you keen on natural light?

Firstly, just say no to dark or heavy curtains. Rather go for the lightweight and light coloured materials to transform your dark room into the brighter one. This is the best time to look at the things like, the direction your rooms’ face, the level of light that gets into different rooms at different times of the day. You can, however, go even farther if you really want to fake a lot of natural light using mirrors. Install a whole wall of mirror panels to maximize the amount of natural light that is being reflected. However, it is not all sizes of mirror that we can hang on the wall.

Mirrors can also help extend the boundaries of any home. That applies especially if you are living in a small space. Mirrors can make a small space seem larger thanks to their reflective qualities.

Maximizing light

These details will have a great impact on what you eventually opt for when redesigning the theme of your home. There is no guarantee that this design will work out exactly how you have planned it. Before you commence redesigning, you should ask yourself how much attention you pay to the level of natural light that gets into your home.

Do not let the decor block the natural light that you do have. Having big and heavy furniture in front of your windows will block the light you have coming in and cast shadows across the rest of your space. These are both bad ideas if you are trying to create an illusion that you have a lot more light than you actually have.

Talking about illusions, you probably know by now that mirrors keep shadows away. If you want to really trick your eyes, try hanging a mirror so that the edges hide just behind your window drapes.

We are all familiar with the need for a full-length mirror to catch a glimpse of ourselves before we start the day. You will have a mirror that is perfect for checking outfits while doubling as a stunning piece aesthetically. Try to always choose one that will make a statement. You can keep them interesting by mixing and matching your frames to match your decor.
