Brighten Your Brunswick, Medina Ohio Home This Winter

Winter is almost here and the sun has started to set much earlier in Medina and Cuyahoga County. Many homeowners will soon be transitioning their homes into the new season, including checking the heating system, adding insulation and cleaning the gutters. One other home project that can help welcome the winter is brightening your home.

So take down those dark drapes and paint over those dreary walls. The sun going down earlier doesn’t have to mean your mood goes with it. Your home should remain your happy place— just try these easy tasks to brighten your spaces:

Remove the shades
Especially if you have solar shades to block out the sun and keep your electric bills down in the summer, it’s time to remove them. Swap out the shades for something lighter or remove them altogether to allow more sun into your home. As a result, more sun can also mean lower heating bills!

Remove the dark drapes
Eliminating those heavy shades and drapes is just one way to brighten your home in Hinckley, Valley City, Media, Brunswick, and Strongsville. Sheer fabrics and lighter colors can bring more energy into the spaces and also allow for more light. Opt for window coverings that don’t keep light out, but allow you to alter the amount you let in or simply filter through a sheer fabric.

Increase wattage
Spot a dark corner or area in a room? Bringing in more lamps can be one solution, the other is increasing the wattage of your light bulbs. Check the lamp for the maximum wattage and then increase light accordingly.

Bring in mirrors
Mirrors actually allow you to create the illusion of a larger space by reflecting light. Hanging a mirror on the wall opposite a window can double the amount of a light in a space. If you don’t have the option of bringing in more mirrors, simply clean the ones you have. You might be surprised by how much brighter your Ohio home looks all due to a cleaner mirror.
