An abundance of sunshine will always bring a cheery atmosphere into an otherwise dark or shaded room. There are a few ways to accomplish this while adding value to your home. Sliding glass doors added to a living room or family room will not only allow additional light in but it will also enhance the room’s appearance and increase the value of your real estate. You can be sure that sliding glass doors will open up other possibilities for decorating this area as well. The additional light is great for introducing a variety of live plants into your house. These live plants naturally remove pollutants from the air and release oxygen for cleaner breathing. One example is the Peace Lily. This beautiful and hardy plant helps to eliminate formaldehyde, benzene, ammonia and other toxins that have been released into the air. These toxins often come from carpets, upholstery, glue, paint and other items found in our homes. The rubber plant makes another great choice. This plant will enjoy the full or bright light that comes from your new source of sunlight and will help to eliminate carbon monoxide from the air.
Another consideration of improvement that will brighten your home is the addition of a bay or bow window. The bow window is extremely attractive with the added depth of the window ledge for decorations in addition to the extra light that is allowed into the room. Window Nation has a great selection available as well as custom made units specifically designed for your room.
This is also a great time of year to make some color changes with new paint combinations as you continue with your home improvement projects. There is nothing more refreshing than a fresh, newly painted room. And finally, consider new cabinets for your kitchen, choosing a new style and a different color of cabinetry.
As you launch into your choices of spring projects and begin implementing just a few of these home improvement ideas, you will be pleased with the results and your guests will feel like they have just stepped into a brand new home!
