Exposure to daylight has been linked to improvements in our welbeing and mood, and in the home, natural light can make a room lighter and brighter and give the feeling of more space. If you want to flood your home with natural light, these eight top tips are a great place to start.
Introduce lighter colors to your walls by banishing statement wallpaper and dark block colors in favor of a soft shade of white paint. Shades of white will make a space feel brighter as it reflects the natural light entering the room, rather than absorbing it.
Avoid using brilliant white paint on walls as it can make a space feel cold, an off-white shade will create a much warmer effect. Another trick is to paint the ceiling a couple of shades lighter than the walls to create the illusion of height and space. Choosing a paint with a satin finish will help reflect the light more than matte paint.
