Bring Light To Your Home This Summer



When spring arrives we can look forward to longer days, warmer weather, and a fresh looking home. In spring many of us take ourselves with removing any winter elements from our homes as well as clutter to ensure that the whole house feels refreshed and clean for the warmer seasons. 

One thing that is always great about spring and summer is the extra sunlight we enjoy throughout the house. If you want to improve the amount of natural light you get in your home this spring, here are some simple ways to do it.


Place mirrors around the house

Mirrors are an accessory that often help to make a room look and feel bigger. If you have a blank wall with nothing on it, installing a mirror is often a great choice and allows you to give the illusion of extra space around the home. But did you know that mirrors can also be effective for bringing light to your home? By placing a few mirrors around the house that are close to your windows, you will be able to reflect light throughout the house and make even the darkest spots look brighter. 


Install bigger windows

If you want to spend some money on making your home look and feel brighter – contacting a local glaziers to fit larger windows around the house is a great idea. The easiest way to ensure you get more natural into the home throughout the year is to have bigger windows that let the extra light in, so by investing in this you’ll soon be able to enjoy a brighter home all year long. 



Ditch the chunky curtains

If throughout the winter you have had thick chunky curtains adorning your windows to keep out the cold; it might be time to switch things up to a lighter fabric. Linen curtains are a great option for the warmer months because they are thinner and let cool air through, and they also won’t clutter up your window space and become imposing on your space. Keeping a thick set of curtains for winter and a thin set for summer can be a great way to get the most out of your home all year long.


Use lighter paint colours

When trying to make your home look a little brighter this spring, one simple method is to paint lighter colours on your walls – or freshen up white paint you already have on the walls. White will reflect all light and this will make your home instantly look so much brighter and fresher. 


Consider legless furniture

To make some space in your living room as well as give light more places to go – try legless furniture that leaves space underneath for light to penetrate throughout the home. This is a great way to improve the light in your home and it also helps to make a small room look bigger.
