How to take advantage of natural light in your spaces

Natural light is a source of energy and optimism. It plays an important role creating warmer and more welcoming spaces. Making the most of natural light is important when decorating and sometimes a few little tricks can enhance the clarity of your home, in addition to saving on your economy and helping the environment. We want to give you some advice from our experience:

Use light paint and colors

The colors that are chosen for the walls, ceilings and even the furniture and elements of a space multiply the illuminating effect of natural light. If you are looking to illuminate your spaces, it is best to use light colors or pastel tones, because they will give a feeling of spaciousness, clarity and are capable of reflecting natural light.

Windows as the best ally

The more windows you have, the greater the entry of natural light into your home. It is recommended that the windows occupy an area equivalent to 10% - 20% of the surface of the room.

Pay attention to the distribution

Make sure that sunlight is present in most spaces, especially those where daily tasks are carried out, this will reduce the use of artificial light. Areas such as the kitchen, dining room and living room are where you will do more family life, so it is important that they are open so that they receive a homogeneous light. 

On the other hand, it is essential that you do not interrupt the light inputs with furniture or complementary elements and place each element in an organized and well distributed way.

Light curtains and mirrors
