Manor house designers in Hurstville with tips for adding more natural light to your home
Our drafting services in Penshurst explain that natural light is the number one feature people look for when buying a family home.
We all know that natural light can make a home lighter and brighter, giving the feeling of more space. If you want to flood your home with natural light, these top tips are a great place to start.
Introduce lighter colours to your walls. Shades of white will make a space feel brighter as it reflects the natural light entering the room, rather than absorbing it.
By far the best way to increase the natural light in your home is to install large new windows and doors. Bi-folding doors are a particularly good choice as they can transform an entire wall of your home into glass for breath-taking views and ultimate light levels.
Sky lights are the perfect way to light corridors and any areas in your home where there are either no windows or windows that don’t receive the desired amount of light.
By replacing solid doors with glass doors, the natural light will flow from room to room. The transparency of the glass tricks the brain into thinking there’s no barrier. This way you give the illusion that your home is more open than it is.
Double up on the natural light you already have with strategically placed mirrors which will reflect the sunlight back throughout the room and give it a much brighter atmosphere.
If you are renovating, you can visually make your home feel bigger by removing walls and opening up living areas. This is a great way to let more natural lighting into the whole house.
