Natural light is the ideal light source for an interior. It also plays a definite role in the health and morale of the occupants of the premises. Here is a selection of ideas for taming the sun’s rays with ease to enjoy it fully.
Paint some sections of the wall white
To fully reflect the light, the best alternative is to paint some walls in the house white. This color is known to capture natural light, imparting a sense of clarity and expanse. For more effect, it is possible to have accessories immaculate or in other light shades such as a bench or a table.
Choose white bed linen
To gain brightness in a bedroom, using plain white bed linen is particularly recommended. This alternative allows you to instantly illuminate a room without adding additional lamps, especially if the piece of furniture is in the middle of the room.
Naturally, illuminate the attic
It is possible to invest the attic by illuminating them more thanks to a few tips.
- Painting the ceiling with the color white ensures that the light from the windows is diffused into the room;
- Painting visible powders is also an excellent alternative;
- To diffuse natural light effectively, it is also sufficient to place a large mirror flush with the floor or leaning against a wall;
- Creating openings at the roof will keep light throughout the day while adding main openings.
Prefer a glass door
If one of the rooms in the house opens onto a perfectly exposed exterior, it is best to use a glass door. The latter plays the card of transparency to bathe the interior in light. Also, it is possible to paint the walls white while installing a mirror on a section of the wall for more lighting.
Set up a counter near a window
In an open kitchen, placing a counter under or next to a window provides a naturally lit, flat surface. This space will serve as a work plan or will be dedicated to lunch or dinner without requiring a lamp. Result: a certain dynamism and graphics.
Install workshop-style glass roofs to partition the kitchen area
Need to combine closed kitchen area and open space? It suffices to arrange a glass structure around the kitchen area. It will provide visual access to the room adjacent to the kitchen and stay in contact with guests while enjoying a corner dedicated to preparing meals. The windows’ transparency illuminates the room, especially when the kitchen area is placed near the bay windows or windows.
Bet on the reflections of a mirror
In dark and narrow rooms such as the bathroom, it is possible to create reflections with a mirror. If there is a window or an opening to the outside, just install a mirror so that it reflects daylight to illuminate the room. For a harmonious rendering, favor a mirror similar in shape to the window.
A staircase to circulate the light
This option is particularly suitable for a residence with one or more floors. However, it is important to provide sections of the wall painted white on either side of the staircase. Indeed, the idea is to diffuse the light along with the structure.
Create an opening to another room
To gain brightness, it is possible to knock down the wall between two rooms, provided that it is not load-bearing. An additional window and extra space further illuminate the room. It suffices to structure the area with a low wall, among other things, to separate various spaces. It is also possible to arrange a glass roof, taking care to choose it white.
Use light, white curtains
The color around windows has the power to influence interior light. Thus, colored curtains are known to absorb light effectively. In the absence of vis-à-vis, thick curtains are not necessary either. The best is to adopt a light white sheer, covering the windows while lighting the room.
