Sunny windows can instantly set the mood for your room and the entirety of your home. So, why not make the most of them? Here’s how to improve their functionality.
Pair them with black. It may not be something that you would expect, but pairing your windows with a black wall is a great idea. Experts say that this gives off the Scandinavian aesthetics, which hold minimalism to a high standard.
Soften the lights. Although natural illumination is an advantage, too much daylighting can be bad for you as this can affect the way you live. It can distract you from watching television, eating dinner or even doing activities in your living space. It can also be too much for your eyes, so make certain that you’re able to tone down the brightness by using drapes with a neutral shade that can complement your windows.
Grow window plants. While you’re making home remodeling decisions, consider getting garden windows for your kitchen or bedroom as it is a great solution for making the most of natural light. Succulents like aloe vera and cacti are good indoor plants, and can even work as dehumidifiers in your bedroom. You can do the same in the kitchen by growing herbs, such as oregano and basil.
Add a breakfast nook. This can be as simple as adding a two-chaired table in the perfect spot, which can help you feel more energized as you start your day. Sunlight is said to provide endorphins, and if your sunny windows help lighten the mood, you’ll feel more motivated to take on your daily activities.
