Having a brightly lit room helps you relax better and helps reduce your stress. It is no wonder that when people feel stressed they go out to nature. Similarly, the lighter your room looks the better you can think properly. There is a scientific link between natural light and good mood. So it comes as no surprise that in countries that have huge seasonal changes like winter and summer, happiness seems to spring up during the seasons of spring and summer when people spend more time outside in bright light.
With all the numerous benefits of natural light, it is important to take some steps to remedy the lack of natural light in your home/apartment.
We’ve come up with a list of tricks to make sure your room has great natural lightning without spending an arm and a leg:
Have Shiny Surfaces:
Having shiny surfaces in your kitchen or your room will enable light to bounce off the surfaces and make your room lighter. You don’t need to go for white or cream colours either, just go for pale colours and that will do as well. So try to make your surfaces shinier to enable your room to be brighter.
Concentrate on the Walls:
The most efficient way of ensuring a bright room is to concentrate on the walls. This is even more important if you do not have enough natural lighting coming in through the windows. It’s important to concentrate on having bright, light-coloured walls. Having a white wall or cream wall brightens up your space instantly.
Do not underestimate the impact of your outside greenery on the light that gets in. To get enough light in, consider trimming the greenery outside and let nothing obstruct the light.
