4 Tips for More Natural Light in Your Home

How is the natural lighting in your home? If you have small windows or only a few windows, you’re relying more on artificial lights, missing out on the brightness and warmth sunshine adds to a home.

Here are 4 ways you can let the sunshine in

  1. Change your window treatments. Heavy curtains block light, so switch to a lighter fabric and replace your blinds with sheer panels so light can shine through even when they are closed.
  2.  Use mirrors. Hang a large mirror on the walls opposite your windows to reflect the natural light. Your room will instantly feel brighter and more open.
  3.  Lighten up your walls. Paint your walls a light color so the sunlight doesn’t get absorbed into dark walls. Be sure to choose a glossy or satin finish for better light reflection.
  4.  Add a skylight. If you can’t add more windows, bring the light in from above. Skylights are a budget-friendly way to achieve more light. There are many options to choose from, including sun tunnels that take up little space and vented skylights that also let in fresh air. And the new solar skylights are even kinder on your wallet, because they qualify for a 30% tax credit on the product and the installation costs.

Great sales staff, and crew! We gave Doug p a few challenges with our big job and they delivered! Gutters, new construction windows, siding, gutters. They also helped us design a new front porch addition. Completed on time and in budget. My first call on any new project will be to Jeremy!
