With winter around the corner and it’s time to bloom up your home amid the dark greyish clouds all day. The most obvious part of living in community apartments in OMR Chennai is that you get enough sunlight and exposure out during winter as you’d only like to snuggle up under your comfy blanket all day. Moreover, your home feels dull and dark during winters and rainy days because of the cloudy atmosphere. To brighten up your home, here are six changes you could make to boost light and open up your home to light this winter.
Start with basic light sources
The best place to start the process of brightening up your home is to let in the light. The basic element of lighting your room makes a huge difference. Let in more natural light as possible to lighten the room naturally and fill the other gaps as you like. During winters, you’d definitely need to add a few more light sources to the room to have sufficient brightness. In case of installing lights, hang it as higher as possible for letting the light to shine through the entire room. There are no limitations to add the lighting only to the ceiling, but can also use additional lighting to the cabinets, shelves, and vanity as well. This automatically increases brightness and warmth in the room.
Dark coloured window curtains can block natural light to let in easily. Hang any light-coloured curtains to let and sprawl the light inside the room to the maximum. This way, your room feels more open and airy too. In case you have dark curtains in your apartment, then consider changing them to light coloured one during winters.
Let yourself out rather spending time indoors
Don’t just limit yourself within those four walls in your apartment. Rather use the outdoor space if you have some. In case of spacious individual houses, you’d have plenty of outdoor spaces like patio and garden to spend time outdoors. In case of apartments, you only get to have a balcony and you can set up small patio-like space by adding chairs and potted plants to make the best out of the small apartment balcony. Expand your evenings further by spending time with abundant evening sunset or even afternoons would be better during winters as there would be limited heat.
Try the most basic way by hanging mirrors
The most obvious thought anyone would have to brighten their home is to add lighting. But there is another simple way to spread the minimum lighting to maximum is add mirrors to the room. By hanging mirrors to the room, it reflects the light in the room when you strategically placing the mirrors at the right corners of the room.
Raise the furniture
Heavy furniture makes the space feel cramped and less airy. Specifically, the large boxer skirt on the furniture feels more occupied in the room. Instead, switch to furniture that has their legs raised and try to pick furniture that has space at the bottom to make the space feel bigger than its actual size. Or swap to see-through furniture such that the light can pass through the furniture to give the room an illusion of spaciousness.
