Lighting up your Life


Light up your home with a new windowThe depths of winter are when we really notice that the lovely home that we bought in the middle of summer is actually a cave in winter.

Natural light is so important for our well-being, and our dull, dreary winters often leave us desperate for spring and sunlight. If your home is particularly short on daylight there are alterations that you can do to make your home brighter. Here are a few suggestions that we might be able to help you with:

Glass is your friend
Add windows and glass doors to flood your room with extra light. Kitchens and lounges are the obvious places, but don’t forget halls, stairs and landings. They’re often dark, but can help light the rest of your house. Skylights and Light Tubes are also wonderful ways to get more light into your home.

Remove obstructions
Do you really need that door or that wall? If not, consider having them removed. Small rooms are notorious for being dark, so taking down unnecessary partitions will instantly open up your house and maximise on space and light.

Clever decorating
Painting your wall a light, bright colour will instantly lift a dark room, but sometimes it just isn’t enough. If this is the case for you, why not consider embracing the dark and enhancing it? Use deep colours that will make your room oh so cosy, but fill it with atmospheric lighting such as candles, lamps and spotlights. Gorgeous textures will also work well, and will add a luxurious feel to this kind of room.
