Autumn can be a gloomy season, but that doesn’t mean your home should follow suit. Here a few inspiring ideas that can help you incorporate a bit more sun in your house by making a few key remodeling changes.
Add Windows to Key Areas
A couple of windows can help brighten up a room, but those usually end up in the same spots: in the middle of a wall, directly facing the room. According to our experts, you should consider adding windows to other areas, such as in bathrooms, near staircases and in walkout areas.
Switch Your Entry Door
One of the best sources of natural lighting in your home is your entry door. For your new door installation, consider getting an option with transoms and sidelights to get plenty of light into your home without having to resort to a totally transparent door panel.
Nothing brings natural light into your home better than skylights. Even a single skylight could greatly brighten up an entire section of your home. However, you have to make sure that the skylight is properly sealed to prevent problems like water leaks during rainy days.
Use More Glass
Entry doors can’t afford to be fully transparent, but that’s not the case for your patio door. Going for sliding patio doors with large uninterrupted panels can have a drastic impact on how bright your home can be even during cloudy autumn days. French patio doors also work to a lesser extent, but they require a bit more floor space since the panels have to be able to swing open.
