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.

We had Choice install the most beautiful second floor sunroom ever. They began the project in December and worked through the cold and wind to finish in the end of January.They were very professional, punctual and paid great attention to detail. The workmen were very pleasant to be around and always had time to listen and discuss any issues we had. We would recommend them to anyone that wants a quality job done at a reasonable price.

This was the most professional and 100% the best price out of all the sliding door quotes I received. They were thousands less than other companies and the door is beautiful. Took them only a few hours to install and made it look beautiful. I recommended them to all my neighbors and friends already. Dont waste your time getting quotes from anyone else. Beautiful job Choice!

We used Choice to redo our master bathroom and kitchen. They did a great job with the design and installation. The crew working in our home were professional and very skilled. They didn't take any short cuts and we didn't get extra charges after the initial proposal. I would definately use them again and recommend them.
