5 TIPS FOR MORE DAYLIGHT AND SPACE IN YOUR HOME

Read Time:4 Minute, 45 Second

Most people like to have as much light as possible in their home. And for good reason: light gives energy and creates a spatial effect, not a superfluous luxury with winter approaching. Have you seen the light yet? These 5 tips will help you on your way. (in partnership with Select Windows).

Tip 1: Go for light colors

It is a bit obvious, but with light tones on the walls and ceiling, a room immediately looks a lot more spacious, fresher and therefore lighter. Now don’t think your only option is white, soft pastel shades like ice blue or powder pink also work in this case. Do you want a little more spice with a lick of color? Choose a wall that does not directly reflect daylight, as dark tones tend to absorb light, while light colors reflect it. A very simple way to bring more daylight into your home is by hanging mirrors. By hanging or placing a mirror in a strategic place, you can make a room appear lighter and more spacious. Make sure the mirror is opposite the window, this will reflect extra daylight into the room. Don’t have a window nearby? Then hang the mirror diagonally opposite a lamp. A light sofa in front of a dark wall also works, as do high-gloss materials. Do you like a challenge? Choose paint with a metallic finish, quite daring, but it optimally reflects daylight. A nice option for the hall.

Tip 2: Choose patio garden doors

Make sure that daylight gets into the room. Opening (garden) doors create optimal light in the house. The boundary between inside and outside becomes smaller and the garden is involved in the house all year round. For extra light, if there is sufficient space, a side and/or top light can also be added. Is your garden a loose piece of land at the back of your house? Shame! The outside is just as much part of your interior and contributes to a large extent to your enjoyment of living. All in a maintenance-free plastic frame, with the special LIGNA structure, indistinguishable from real wood. The doors are made to fit every style of house: from apartment to farmhouse and from 1930s house to new-build house. And if you opt for patio doors, you will already benefit from them with the first rays of sunshine in spring.

Tip 3: Add mirrors

A very simple way to bring more daylight into your home is by hanging mirrors. By hanging or placing a mirror in a strategic place, you can make a room appear lighter and more spacious. Is your garden a loose piece of land at the back of your house? Shame! The outside is just as much part of your interior and contributes to a large extent to your enjoyment of living. Make sure the mirror is opposite the window, this will reflect extra daylight into the room. Don’t have a window nearby? Then hang the mirror diagonally opposite a lamp. And a large mirror from baseboard to ceiling can make a room appear twice as large!

Tip 4: Make a lighting plan

Sometimes you have to help a dark room a little bit with artificial light, especially in the winter months, good lighting is indispensable. And don’t immediately think of bright, direct lighting: that often has the opposite effect. Choose floor lamps in strategic places (in corners or under the stairs), direct the light towards the walls and ceiling and use diffused light: this is soft and indirect light, which has the advantage that harsh shadows are limited. Is your garden a loose piece of land at the back of your house? Shame! The outside is just as much part of your interior and contributes to a large extent to your enjoyment of living.  The advantage of this is that such a set is fairly low, so that the view is preserved and attention is not immediately drawn to the outside. With a large dining table and comfortable chairs, eating outside every summer evening is very tempting. If you have limited space, go for collapsible, stackable and lightweight furniture. Do you even have some space left for an outdoor heater or (hanging) armchair. A dimmer is also indispensable, so you can easily adjust lighting to what you are doing.

Tip 5: Regulate the incidence of light

Summer days, we love it. But there are also those days when there is just too much light and heat coming in. You can regulate this yourself with functional and decorative interior blinds. The sun’s heat is kept out by the sun-resistant textile, while light is let through in a measured amount. A very simple way to bring more daylight into your home is by hanging mirrors. By hanging or placing a mirror in a strategic place, you can make a room appear lighter and more spacious. Make sure the mirror is opposite the window, this will reflect extra daylight into the room. Don’t have a window nearby? Then hang the mirror diagonally opposite a lamp. The sun protection is mounted on the inside and not only insulates against heat from the outside, it even keeps the heat inside in winter, thanks to the metallized coating.

In addition, sun blinds provide more privacy, people passing by do not easily look in, but you can look out. A blackout cloth ensures that you do not have a view in the evening. Source: In collaboration with Select Windows
