Most buyers will search for a home that provides a lot of natural light. Unfortunately, yours may feature a little more than typically wanted. If you feel like the light coming through your window is overpowering, we have six genius ideas to help you. Let’s take a look at six ideas for an overly bright window:
Ideas for an Overly Bright Window:
1. Soften The Effect.
You may find it helpful to place curtains over the window that produces a lot of natural light. Instead of getting rid of all of the light that is produced from the window, you may want to incorporate sheer curtains. Sheer curtains will help soften the intensity caused by the sunlight while still allowing an ample amount of light to enter the space.
2. Incorporate Plants.
Greenery can help the window’s brightness feel deliberate. A few plants here and there will add some charm as well as tone down the room’s overly bright nature.
3. Begin The Day Earlier.
Bright spaces give the opportunity to start your day early. You can get a jump start on activities and begin each morning feeling refreshed.
4. Take Advantage of The Light.
You may find it a little difficult to sleep in a room with an overly bright window, but it can make for the perfect workspace. Homeowners find the brightness inspiring, and it helps them get a jump start on work.
5. Contrast It.
Homeowners also find it helpful to contrast the bright nature of the window with a darker wall color. Some may even go as far as using black on the walls to balance out the brightness. We recommend sampling some paint colors within your room before committing. You want to be sure that the colors work well during all hours.
6. Create an Indoor Garden.
If the well-lit area of your home is inside your kitchen or dining room, you can create a mini indoor garden with fresh herbs. The windowsill can be the perfect place for mini pots and containers. Just be sure to find easy-to-grow herbs that work well in sunny areas.
