Easy ways to get more natural light into your home

As the evenings slowly begin to draw in and our homes start to feel dark and dreary, there are plenty of ways to make your property feel more light and airy, even if you don’t get much natural light!

Also, if you are thinking about selling, making sure your home looks bright and appealing is a must! This will ensure you attract potential buyers and see the offers flooding in.

Here’s our top tips to help make your property feel brighter…

Add a lick of paint

Any sized room can be made to feel lighter by simply painting the ceiling white, this will reflect light instead of absorbing it. Also, painting the room with lighter tones can make the room feel bigger too.

Glossy kitchens

One of the best ways to brighten up a kitchen, is by having white gloss unit doors. These bounce light around the room. High gloss kitchens never seem to go out of fashion, so glossy doors are a great way to update the room and they aren’t too expensive. Don’t forget the floor! White painted floorboards, or shiny white floor tiles in kitchens and bathrooms, will help bounce light around. Also, having good artificial lighting in these rooms is important, as you usually need the lights on even when it’s light outside.

Mirrored furniture

You could consider going for glossy or mirrored furniture in a different room. Hanging mirrors on the walls opposite a window will help maximise the light coming in, and will also make the room feel and look bigger. 

Windows

Replacing, enlarging or adding windows can make a big difference to how light a room is, bit it can be expensive! An alternative could be changing the window treatment as it’s usually cheaper! Changing the curtains to some sleek roller blinds or sheer voiles, will add additional light to a room.

By giving your home more natural light, this will not only keep it up to date and looking fresh, but it will also give your home the wow factor if you are looking to sell…
