Top Tips to Brighten up Dark Rooms

You probably don’t want your home to be dark and gloomy. There’s no better way to brighten up any part of your home than through natural lighting.

Top Tips to Brighten up Dark Rooms

Here are a few tips that can help you illuminate the darkest areas of your home by ensuring your doors and replacement windows are optimized properly to let in the most amount of natural light.

Window Treatments

You don’t have to totally ban curtains and treatments on your replacement windows, but you can choose materials that aren’t as thick and heavy. Invest in light curtains that diffuse light into the room. This way, you don’t have to sacrifice privacy to increase daylight in your home.

Glass Doors and Windows

Sometimes, a room just doesn’t have enough wall space to install additional larger windows. Instead, consider installing glass patio doors that lead into your home’s main hallway. If this is not an option, transoms can also be a great alternative to allow a little bit of light to enter.

Keep Windows Clean

You’ll be surprised how much of an impact dirt, dust and other debris buildup on your windows can have on a room’s lighting. Simply wiping them clean can brighten up your living space.

If trees or large shrubbery are growing in front of your windows, their shade can also decrease the amount of sunlight that comes in. If this is the case, you can trim the trees or remove them completely.
