» Move towards the light

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

Sometimes we feel like we need more space. One way to make rooms feel bigger is to have light to move towards. Take a look at the main circulation routes in your home, and look at what terminates that route. If its a wall or other dark space, this really effects the way you feel about your home. We respond to light and view, we like to move towards light. To make your house feel bigger look for opportunities to place a new window, for example, at the end of a hallway. If it is not possible to install a window, a lighted painting or piece of artwork will have the same effect. Another great location is at the bottom or top of the stair, instead of descending into a dark hole, descending a stair towards a window can become a daily pleasure.
