One of the biggest improvements that you
can make to your Collin County, Texas home is to bring in more natural light. Sunlight is a powerful mood enhancer and a home
design that brings in a lot of natural light will automatically look and feel
much more pleasant. Not only will it boost your mood, bringing in natural light
will also increase the value of your home.
So how can you shed some light on your home’s
interior? Here are a few ways:
Add More Reflective Surfaces
Whenever you add a light and reflective
surface to your home, you increase the number of times that daylight bounces
around inside the room. Try painting your ceilings and walls with light or off-white
colours. Matte finishes are actually better than glossy surfaces, as they
reflect light in all directions at once. Add some metal accents and some mirrors to the space, which will
also reflect the light.
Move Your Furniture Around
Do you have furniture that is blocking
natural light from coming in? Move your furniture away from the windows so that
it will not get in the way of the sunlight streaming into your home.
Add a Glass Door
Is there anywhere in your home where you
can exchange a solid door for one with glass in its design? This will allow the
light to flow through the doorway and increase the feeling of brightness in
your home. There are plenty of glass doors with superb security features, so
they will be just as safe as any other door. Also, if you have a yard or a
patio to look out on, adding sliding glass doors will be a great way to let the
light in and enjoy the view.
Expand Your Windows
Is it possible to increase the size of any
of your windows? Especially if the windows are on the south side of the house,
they will bring a significant amount of sunshine into the home.
Add a Skylight
skylights to your home will bring a lot of natural
light into the interior. Also, they are much more private than windows because
anyone passing by will not be able to see through them. They also add overhead
lighting, so that you will not need to use electricity during daylight hours.
These are just a few ways that you can let
the sunshine in and bring more natural light into your interiors. If you have
