First, create your home renovation budget and use some of our ideas. Also, search in home decoration magazines, Pinterest, and other sources of ideas. There is never enough ideas for home renovation.
Use light colors for walls
The first rule is to use light and pastel colors on your walls. Avoid dark grey, red, black and other dark colors. Your room will look smaller too. Repainting is not that expensive and it won’t take too much time. White is the brightest color, but you can play a little bit with other bright colors.
Too much furniture and a mess will make your house sad, small, and dark. There is no need to have clutter in your home when you can find a cheap way to store your items. Also, it is easier to remodel your home if you store your items somewhere (in a storage unit, for example).
Add mirrors and shiny items
Besides bright paint, you can use glossier paint and give your walls a mirror effect. Also, try to add more mirrors because mirrors reflect light. Mirrors will make your room look bigger too, not only brighter. Look for furniture pieces with glass or chrome, use silver photo frames, and other “reflective” surfaces.
Glass blocks instead of walls are becoming more and more popular. They will give you the right amount of natural light where otherwise no light would be entering your home and also it is decorative. Remodel your house smart and make it beautiful and bright.
If you want a little bit bigger home project, work on your ceiling. One of the ideas is to install skylights (windows for the roof). It will bring in more consistent light than normal windows in your home because they are located on the top.
Paint eaves white
Overhangs created by your roof are eaves. Why it is important to be white? Because they reflect natural light into your home. And that is why you should paint them white to boost natural light into your home.
Large windows and doors
Windows and glass doors are bringing more natural light into your home, but this home project will not be cheap or simple. This is a great idea for your living room. You can have a “glass wall” instead of a regular wall. Create a sunroom and have 100% of natural light in your home. It is trendy and useful too.
