Many homeowners would like to learn how to improve natural light. Natural light in the house makes colours appear more vivid, and even the design looks more eye-catching and bright. Natural light also helps to boost your disposition and increase your serotonin levels (at no charge).
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that we always look for ways to increase natural light in home design. Need inspiration for a refurbishment or even a new construction? The best solutions for increasing natural light are right here.
Use mirrors - This classic trick to boost natural light is well-known because it works well. Mirrors increase the perception of space by creating the illusion of twice the space (particularly when used with window mirrors). They can help funnel natural light into darker areas like stairwells or hallways when strategically positioned.
Paint your home white - Your roof's overhangs are called eaves or soffits. They are either exposed as open eaves, or a horizontal soffit is placed over them. In any case, this area bounces natural light back into your house. One little-known method to increase natural light in every area of your home is to paint the eaves white. You can paint your eaves white even if the exterior of your house is painted a different colour. The curbside aspect won't be altered by the eaves' angle toward the house. These are primarily only seen from within the home.
Re-arrange your furniture - Ensuring that your furniture is in proportion to the size of the room is an easy rule to follow. Additionally, you should only sometimes assume that putting furniture against a wall to clear space in the middle of a room is the best use of the area because it serves no purpose if the centre of the space is only used for people to cross.
