5 Ways to Maximize the Natural Light In Your Home

Nothing beats the sunlight streaming into your home on a beautiful spring day. Enhance the natural light in your space with a few tips and tricks from our team at Renewal by Andersen. 

1. Place Mirrors Strategically

Decorating with large mirrors will not only make your room appear bigger, but it will also increase the natural light in your space. When you place a mirror directly across from a window, it will double the amount of sunlight entering the room. You can also consider decorating with shiny objects, such as metallic vases, silver photo frames, and chrome accented furniture, to reflect even more light.

2. Use Light Paint Colors

Certain colors have the ability to reflect light. When you use light colors like white, light beige, or a subtle gray, your walls will act like a mirror and bounce light around the room. Plus, if you paint the ceiling an even lighter shade, it will make your space feel taller and brighter. 

3. Invest in Translucent Window Coverings

Replace dark and heavy curtains with ones made of airy, sheer fabric. Single-panel curtains will let more light through and into your home. You can also choose blinds which will allow you to easily control how much light you want.

4. Wash Your Windows

This one may seem a bit obvious, but it can make a world of a difference. Thoroughly wash the inside and outside of your windows to ensure that maximum sunlight can enter your home. We promise you’ll be surprised at the results!

5. Install Larger Windows 

If these tips still aren’t helping, it may be time to invest in new windows. We recommend picture windows for the best natural light. Ours are made with sleek frames and large glass panels to maximize your view, and they come in a variety of colors, so you’re sure to find something that fits your style. Learn more here
