Make the most of natural light in your home

Natural light in a room can make a home feel lighter and brighter and give the impression of more space.

 

Introducing lighter colours to your walls will make a space feel brighter as it reflects the natural light entering the room

Painting walls white or other light colours will make a space feel brighter as it reflects the natural light entering the room.

Dark block colours or materials such as wallpaper absorb light so opting for a lighter hue throughout your home is recommended.

Choosing a hard flooring such as wood, stone or tiles allows natural light to bounce off your flooring, again this will create a sense of spaciousness.

With your kitchen and bathroom, opt for glossy finishes with shiny surfaces. Reflective cabinetry, flooring and accessories are just a few simple ways you can increase the light and ambience.

If you’re adding a second storey extension to your existing home, staircases are a great way to bring light into your home.  Look at light-coloured balustrading, floating steps and glass panelling.

Skylights or highlight windows are a popular feature to add into a renovation as they can be installed in both flat and pitched roofs, allowing natural light to flood into the room throughout all times of the day.

When it comes to choosing your new doors as part of your renovation, glass bi-fold doors, sliding doors or French doors are great solutions for letting the natural light in. We recommend going for the largest panels of glass you can afford – you won’t regret it.

And with your windows, look for wide-slat shutters as this will allow natural light to stream in, while also offering privacy.
