4 Tips for More Natural Light in Your Home

How is the natural lighting in your home? If you have small windows or only a few windows, you’re relying more on artificial lights, missing out on the brightness and warmth sunshine adds to a home.

Here are 4 ways you can let the sunshine in

  1. Change your window treatments. Heavy curtains block light, so switch to a lighter fabric and replace your blinds with sheer panels so light can shine through even when they are closed.
  2.  Use mirrors. Hang a large mirror on the walls opposite your windows to reflect the natural light. Your room will instantly feel brighter and more open.
  3.  Lighten up your walls. Paint your walls a light color so the sunlight doesn’t get absorbed into dark walls. Be sure to choose a glossy or satin finish for better light reflection.
  4.  Add a skylight. If you can’t add more windows, bring the light in from above. Skylights are a budget-friendly way to achieve more light. There are many options to choose from, including sun tunnels that take up little space and vented skylights that also let in fresh air. And the new solar skylights are even kinder on your wallet, because they qualify for a 30% tax credit on the product and the installation costs.

I would give Choice 10 stars if I could. The folks at Choice Home Remodeling have replaced all 31 of the windows in our house over the past year. They are incredibly professional and deliver an outstanding final product. The replacement windows look better than the originals and I get compliments on them all the time! The inside temperature of the inside glass on a 55 degree day has improved by 8 degrees! I am looking forward to seeing what the differential is once the weather turns cold. Their pricing is fair and the quality is second to none. I recommend them 1000%.
We absolutely love the new door we just had installed from Choice! We had such a great experience with Choice from start to finish. Tim was great and helped us pick out the perfect door for our home and didn't try to sell us the most expensive model and was honest, not pushy. Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and professional and the work was top notch.
I bought my windows from them. Everyone one was so nice and professional. Christie was very helpful. Thank you, will use again for other projects
So pleased with our bathroom renovation by Choice Home Remodeling! Alyssa Hayes did an excellent job in designing a functional and attractive way to best utilize our small space. Our kids are thrilled to have their own sinks! Alyssa patiently guided us through the design choices, made recommendations and outlined the construction process. The construction phrase was very timely, and Ken Brown was available for any questions and kept us informed of the schedule and what part of the project was happening when. I was very impressed that the job was finished very close to the scheduled completion date. The Choice staff and subcontractors were all respectful of our space and did a thorough job.
