While every buyer has a different list of items that they’d like in their new home, there are certain things that, across the board, are sure to catch the eyes of any buyer. One of those factors is natural light. There is something welcoming and comforting about having lots of natural light in a home. Not only can natural light enhance and boost moods, but it can change the way that a room looks — entirely!
If you’re looking for ways to brighten up your home, don’t jump to the conclusion that your only option is purchasing brand new windows. There are actually quite a few ways that you can brighten up a space without ever bringing in additional light. Keep reading for a few quick ways that you can brighten up your home.
Fresh Coat of Paint
A more affordable and efficient way to brighten up a space is by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Rather than heading to the hardware store with your favorite shade of purple or green in mind, opt for a lighter color. Anything from an off white to a light blue will help enhance the brightness of a room. Aside from that, these colors aren’t too over the top, so any new buyer is likely to leave the walls and appreciate the fresh paint.
When it comes to decor, mirrors are a fantastic option. Not only are they a fun touch to add to any room, but they are also able to make a room feel brighter and larger. If there is a room in your home that is not only small but is also lacking the natural lighting that so many buyers want, add a mirror on the opposite wall of the windows. This gives the illusion that the room goes on, but it also reflects the light, making the room even brighter.
While we’re on the topic of decor, do your best to stay away from any items that are going to be overly dark. Even the smallest of items, when dark enough to create a sharp contrast, can dim a room. Rather, choose to use light and airy curtains, natural toned throw pillows that are soft in texture, and artwork that incorporates light colors and fewer shadows. When you take all of your decor into account, it becomes so much easier to brighten up your house.
