5 Simple Tips to Bring More Natural Light into Your Home

At Renewal By Andersen, we believe that natural light is one of the most important aspects of a home. It can work wonders for your mood, productivity, and sleep, so why not let it shine? 

Here are 5 simple tips to bring more natural light into your home:

#1: Get rid of the grime! 
Cleaning your windows can make a big difference in letting natural light in. Dirty windows can block natural light and make your space look dingy and dull. By keeping your windows clean, you can make the most of the natural light that enters your home. Bonus Tip: To clean glass, first wipe away built-up dust and grime with a dry cloth. To achieve streak-free results, use a mild solution like soapy water or diluted vinegar and wipe in circular motions. Be sure to use a clean, lint-free cloth to achieve the best results.

#2: Embrace the sunlight with brighter wall colors.  
Lighter colors on your walls and ceiling will reflect sunlight, making your space feel more open and airy. Use lighter shades to reflect more light and create a brighter, more open space. You can also opt for off-white or soft earthy tones to add warmth to your space. Bonus tip: Paint your ceiling a few shades lighter to create a spacious feeling in your room!

#3: Let mirrors do the work!
Who says mirrors are just for admiring your good looks and fashion sense? With the addition of mirrors in your home decor, you can level up the amount of reflected natural light and create the illusion of even more space. Plus, it's a nice way to add a personalized and decorative touch. 

#4: Trim back those trees. 
Don't let overgrown trees or bushes dull your shine! Trim them back to let those precious sun rays drench your living space. And to ensure your home still has great curb appeal, consider planting low-lying shrubs or bushes that won't obstruct your windows.

#5: Think big and invest in your windows!  
If you're looking for a way to brighten up your living space and bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, consider installing a window wall. Renewal by Andersen has designed picture windows to maximize glass surface area, allowing uninterrupted sunlight to flood your living space! Featuring our High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, these windows are the most energy-efficient option we have ever offered.

By improving the natural light in your space, you create a lush and bright environment that can significantly brighten your mood and boost productivity. Contact us and see what a difference Renewal by Andersen windows can make!
