Home Remodeling: Tips For Bringing Sunshine Into Your Home On Cold Winter Days

Winter brings cold and often cloudy days. It’s no secret that many folks struggle to stay motivated during the Winter months. How about a little sunshine? When it is cold outdoors, you often have to stay indoors. Bringing a little sunshine into your home can really make a difference. It can brighten your mood and give your dreary house a lift.

Here are our top 3 suggestions to help brighten up your home:

1. Lighting

Do you have a particular dark area of your home that needs new lighting? It’s amazing what a new set of lights can do for any space. With several unique lighting options in the market place, you are sure to find lighting that matches your decor. From floor lamps, to wall sconces, you have a lot of choices. If you already like the lighting pieces you have, switch to daylight temperature light bulbs. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to mimic sunlight with a cooler blue glow, instead of sickly orange tungsten light bulbs.

2. Flooring

Take a good look at your flooring. Maybe it’s the dark, dreary flooring that you have in a particular area of your home that needs some brightening up. Invest in a lighter shade of laminate flooring and you can transform a space in a full day of work or less, depending on how many square feet you want to update. White laminate flooring is a classy choice that will instantly brighten any room it’s in!

3. Paint

Paint is another easy, cheap way to bring sunshine into your home. Just think of all the cheery color you can add with a fresh coat of paint. Stunning shades of yellow, caribbean blue, and even green could add a lot of brightness to any room of your home. Combine a fresh coat of paint with new lighting and new laminate flooring, and you’ve got yourself a winning combination.

Before you decide to take the plunge to bring that sunshine into your home, be sure to take the time to choose items that you like. Remember, these quality items will be in your home for all 12 months of the year. On the bright side, if you tire of them, light bulbs can be changed, laminate flooring can be easily moved to another room, and a gallon of paint can go a long way.

So, if you find yourself needing sunshine this winter, invest in your home. The reward will pay off. Who says you can’t have sunshine all 365 days of the year when you live in a place with snow?
