Adding More Light to Your Home

263The end of Day Light Savings is approaching, and soon it will be dark before most of us are home from work. 

During the winter months our homes can seem darker than usual, but there are ways to use natural light to brighten things up.  Money Magazine recently published a list of “Do’s” and “Don’ts” for adding light to any home – among topics covered are: 

  • Skylights 
  • Big windows (install them to showcase your best views, but don’t forget to add small windows above or below them that open)
  • Window height (put windows high on the wall, but not tight to the ceiling)
  • Window grouping (group several windows together, but don’t separate them with fat supports)
  • Window shades (install shades in windows that face east, west, and south; avoid using UV-inhibiting coating)

Adding natural light is a great way to increase the value of your home.
