There are many rooms in your house that can be improved by Hemet, CA replacement windows, but the living room is likely where you spend most of your family time. Whether you gather once a week for game night or watch movies together in the evening, the living room sees a lot of family action. If you’d like to brighten the space, there are a number of ways in which you could do so. Here are a few hints to help you get the lighter results you want.
Paint A Bright Color
Any dark color is going to make the space looker smaller and, of course, less bright. If you want your living room to be open and welcoming, paint it a bright color. You could go neutral and white or off white or something more quirky like pale yellow. You can infuse color into the room through pillows, rugs, furniture, and in other ways. If you must have a darker wall color, limit it to one wall as an accent.
Replace Window Coverings
What are your window coverings like? If they’re heavy drapes or curtains, they’re going to weigh down the room and block light, even when they are open. Consider replacing them with a sheer drape so you can let light in while still getting the filtering and privacy you want. You could also get something like shutters that can close out the light, let it all in, or direct it in certain ways, depending on what you want at that time. The window coverings can help you control the light in the room and brighten things up considerably.
Get Replacement Windows
Even with the right color and the right window coverings, you can only get in as much light as your windows allow. If your windows are on the old side, consider replacements that would help you brighten up the living room space. You could get something larger than what you have now or add more windows above or below what you already have. You might want to combine a bank of windows into a picture window so you can optimize lighting and get uninterrupted views. Consider what you want lighting-wise when you look into new windows.
Overhead lighting can only do so much and if it’s not enough at night, brighten the room with well placed lamps. Lamps can be directed down to help you read or directed up to brighten the whole room. They can also give the space a simple style.
