It’s no secret that our weather is less than adequate for most of the year and this can have a real effect on the way our home looks and feels. Dark and dingy rooms and tons of unnatural/artificial light can create an unpleasant atmosphere to live in. Nevertheless, not all is lost. Creating a home with a light and airy disposition can be achieved. In this home improvements article, we take a look at how you could make a few alterations to your interior design, helping maximise the little sunshine we get.
It goes without saying that white is the best colour for making your home feel brighter and ensuring rooms look bigger than they are. White is also a great neutral colour which allows for a range of different complenturay colours or styles to fit a range of different furniture. It’s also one of the perfect colours for when it comes to selling your home as it provides potential buyers to better visualise living in the home and provides a better starting point if they do decide to move.
The choice of window coverings can have a huge effect on how bright your rooms appear. While heavy curtains are the best at keeping warmth in rooms, they can also block out much-needed light, particularly when they’re a dark colour.
A single ceiling light doesn’t do much for brightening up a room and hard to reach corners can be a fairly inefficient source of light.
Dark coloured furniture can make a room feel dark and small especially in rooms where space is limited.
