A bright, sunny living space can boost the mood of everyone at home. Today, a window replacement company shares five ideas to help you add more natural light to your living space.
1. Soften the light. While sun-filled windows are a beautiful addition to your living space, they have the potential to cause glare. Simple, day-to-day activities such as watching television, eating dinner or relaxing on your couch may be inconvenient if too much bright light is pouring into the space. By placing stylish, gauzy curtains in a neutral hue, you tone down the brightness when you want to.
2. Tweak your morning routine. If you happen to have a large, sunlit window, take advantage of the morning light by setting up a breakfast nook adjacent to it. Sitting quietly while sipping your freshly brewed coffee is a perfect way to start the day. Early morning sunlight passing through an energy-efficient window replacement can do wonders for your mind and body.
3. Display lush greenery. It is no secret that in the world of do-it-yourself interior decor, hanging plants are having their moment, and there is no better spot to place them than in front of sunny windows. Boston Fern, Devil’s Ivy, String of Hearts, and Spider Plant are among the go-to indoor plants for many plant lovers. Use sturdy tension rods to hang your beautiful plants at the top of the window. Consider installing custom-made shelves around or under the window to spruce up your furnishings.
4. Add a pop of color. A vivid splash of color like yellow or mauve can make your sunny window more intense and eye-catching. A series of tulips bulbs in vases can also perk up the space.
