The Principle of Natural Light
The use of natural light in remodeling brings about a natural sense of comfort in the room. Many of us spend our days working in fluorescent lighted offices staring at computers and paperwork. The effect of natural light is very calming. The additions of windows or French doors also provide another avenue for the accenting the room with window coverings. When the window coverings are not drawn the view through a window may provide a beautiful sunset or sunrise.
The kitchen in most every home is one of the most active rooms in the home. Kitchens tend to have a gravitational pull. The aroma of good food seems to promote social situations. This room is a natural to start with. The possibilities are limitless. From a complete makeover including floor plan, cabinets, counter tops, flooring, and appliances to a simple addition of more natural light this is the room to start with. Home sellers and home owners alike will reap the benefit of kitchen remodeling.
Next to the kitchen the bathroom is part of the house that is made use of very often. The same principle of natural light that is used in the kitchen to enhance the room may also be applied. Often a skylight in a bathroom can bring a real sense of peace while relaxing in a hot tub or the new Jacuzzi you may want to install. The other benefit of natural light in the bathroom can be one of necessity. The ability to have fresh air in this room can be a huge benefit.
The addition of a room to your home will certainly increase the value based on increasing the square feet of the house at a minimum. In a world of fast paced technology and the many hours we work the sun room is becoming a rival to the media room when it comes to new additions. In addition to the fact that natural light is a given in this room it provides a perfect place to showcase plants. The combination of live plants and natural light can be very therapeutic. This is a great place to relieve stress and also may often take the nervous edge off of a potential home buyer.
The best way to approach these projects is to seek a professional to get an idea of the budget required and if you may have any unforeseen obstacles.
