Daylight Saving Home Decor Tips

Have you been enjoying your extra hour of sleep? When everyone turns the clocks back an hour for daylight saving time, it may seem like you have more energy throughout the day. However, it also means that it is probably dark when you get home. Keep these daylight saving home décor tips in mind to keep your home as bright as possible when the sun goes down.

  • Take down dark drapes – dark drapes may help to keep your home cool in the summer, but they also prevent any light from getting in. Swap them out for light colored curtains to update your décor and brighten your home.
  • Add more lamps – place lamps in any dark corners of your home, such as behind your couch, to make your home brighter and more inviting.
  • Cut open your roof – installing a skylight in your home will make it brighter and feel more inviting. Most skylights are very affordable and will increase the value of your home.
  • Use mirrors – mirrors reflect light, so they will make your space feel brighter without having to turn on so many lights. As an added bonus, mirrors also help to make spaces feel bigger.
  • Paint your walls – choose a bright color and paint your walls. Bright colors will reflect light, while dark colors will absorb it.
  • Choose fun options – opt for not so traditional lighting options to make a space more fun. If you do not have the space for a floor or desk lamp, use a wall mounted light to brighten up the room.
