Day Light Saving 2017... It's about to get darker earlier.

 Below find some helpful tips to help your home feel brighter.

 

Paint it light and bright

Colors and values are nothing more than the light that reaches our eyes after bouncing off objects.

Paint colors that are saturated yet light in value create a similar effect while lending their own distinctive personalities to space. Light shades of blue, green, yellow and neutrals are all passive, receding colors. These hues not only make a room appear lighter but also bigger.Eggshell or satin finishes reflect light around the room, maximizing both the artificial and natural light. For the same reason, paint woodwork such as baseboards, picture rails, doors and staircases railings with white gloss. A gloss paint is the most highly reflective paint finish available and bright white gloss creates a clean, fresh vibe.

Adding Contrast 

Example. A kitchen with white cabinets, countertops, walls, and backsplashes is about as bright as it gets, yet the lack of variety can leave the overall effect a bit dull.

To keep things interesting, introduce a contrast. Choose accessories, cookware, and decorations in your favorite color, or even decide on an entire palette.

Install new windows

Yes, installing an entire window or two that the seal has broken and now are dark and gloomy looking could change your home so that if the room is dim that you’re no forced to keep the lights on all day, and that could be taking a toll on your utility bills — or even your mental well-being! It ought to be obvious, but when was the last time you cleaned all your home’s windows, both inside and out?

Rethink window treatments

If your curtains cover up too much of the window, replace them with something less obstructive. Sheer and semi-sheer window treatments let in plenty of light, without sacrificing privacy during the day. Check out this article on window treatment options.

Brighten the view outside

Maybe you’re too busy focusing on the indoors to see the forest for the trees. But all those trees and overgrown foundation shrubs can block natural light from reaching the house, so cut those bushes and trim those tree limbs.

 

Replace doors

Rethink your doors. Yes, doors present a great opportunity to let in more light, improve the view from inside and make the entry more welcoming. Will changing your front door add more light? What about the door going into your backyard?

Since your front door is a reflection of your home’s personality, as well as your own, pick a style that’s appropriate to the architecture.

 

These are great tips if you are thinking of selling your home start thinking of these tips now as the more natural light your home has to offer, it provides character and much coveted natural light from buyers.
