Spring is nearly here – get ready to let the light in
25th February, 2019
The early days of spring when the warm sun starts to make an appearance bring a joy by adding light to your home so be sure to make the most of this with the right choice of blinds.
A light-filled home is high up on the tick-list of ideal attributes, which means making the most of natural light sources whenever possible.
While some homes are blessed with light others, due to their position or the size of the rooms and windows, can appear dark making it important to maximise light.
The choice of window covering is the most important factor to consider when maximising light.
As heavy curtains could block out light and have a heavier appearance, blinds are an excellent way to make the most of the natural light in a room.
Choose the right colour blind to maximise light
Decorating walls with white, light-coloured or neutral colours will help to reflect sunlight and add to the light enjoyed by a room.
This choice of colour should also extend to your choice in blinds. Opt for lighter coloured blinds to give rooms a seamless, light appearance and to help sunshine filter in.
If you do want to use curtains lighter fabrics and colours are the best choice to maximise natural light in fitting with this scheme.
Which blinds are best for maximising natural light?
The need to let in natural light needs to be balanced with your need for privacy, which may mean you need to strike a compromise.
Blinds that can be opened fully make an ideal choice for maximising natural light allowing the sun to enter a room without interruption. If a room is not over-looked or facing a busy street, roller blinds and roman blinds make a great choice.
Offering stream-lined looks and a wide choice of light colours, Venetian and vertical blinds can be moved around to help direct sunlight into the room while also maintaining a level of privacy.
Sunlight helps to lift your mood and making the most of the natural light streaming in through your windows will help to brighten your home in more ways than one.
Make sure you are making the most of the natural light in your home with the right choice of blind.
