The days are getting shorter and the sun sets a little earlier as the winter season approaches. Most of the surroundings during wintertime become dull and dab. While some people enjoy the gloomy look, some people do not prefer it. Fortunately, you do not have to spend the winter season in the dark because there are ways to make your indoors brighter. We compiled some tips for you to make your house look better during wintertime.
3 Ways to Make Your House Brighter in wintertime
Following are the best ways to make your house brighter during the wintertime.
Take Down Window Screens
While putting up window screens and drapes on your windows helps keep unwanted light out of the house, it can make your house look darker. The sun hardly comes out in the winter season and the window screens block the sunlight making your home darker. Thus, the first thing you need to do is take down the window screens to let the sunlight into your houses.
We know that you can just turn on a light to make it look brighter but nothing beats natural sunlight. In addition, the sunlight will make your room warmer and help you cut down on heater costs during the winter season.
You can always put the window screens back in the spring season since it keeps a good amount of sunlight out during the day.
Repaint and Hang Mirrors
If you needed an excuse to make changes to your house interior, the winter season may just be ideal. You can repaint your interior and add colors that fit well with the sunlight. The best way to do this is to choose lighter colors for your house the next time you make changes to it.
A lighter indoor means that more sunlight will bounce off and make your room look brighter and better. People living in countries where the sun doesn’t appear much, use this little tip all the time. You can hang several mirrors around the house to reflect and amplify the sunlight you get in your home.
Choose the Right Light Fixtures
You will still rely on electricity during the day. It is not just about the size of the bulb you wish to add, but also about the kind of bulb you have in your house. To get a general idea of bulb light options, you will see that:
⦁ The coolness of the bulb depends on the K rating of the bulb mentioned.
⦁ You can go for a bulb with a k rating of 3,500K to 4,100K if you want a cool white light in your home.
⦁ Or you can go for a bulb between 5,000K and 6,500K for a blue-white light in your house (this looks much like sunlight)
There are several ways you can use to brighten your day during the winter season. All you need to do is make some changes to your house when you clean and prepare for the winter season before it arrives.
