Let the light in
I want to share some tips and tricks I have used to make my house look much lighter, airy and bigger.
The biggest struggle for me was making my small bungalow look bigger.
My home looks big in pictures but it's actually smaller in real life. I have used lots of tricks to make it look much bigger and brighter.
My house is a dormer style bungalow, I have a side entrance so my hall and entrance lacks natural light. I make sure not to block any windows or clutter areas where there is natural light with clutter etc so the light can pour in.
In my living room I have a lovely large bay window, however, I only get the sunshine in this room in the morning and then the sun moves to the back of the house.
I make sure not to block this window and I just have cream wooden style blinds on the windows, I don't have curtains either in this room.
Lay your room out with light in mind, putting a sofa in front of a window might give you floor space but it might block loads of natural light from your room.
