Increase Natural Light in the Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of most homes and when you have natural light in the space, it feels more open and makes you feel more awake and capable of great meals. When you love your Penryn, CA home, you don’t want to leave to get the kitchen of your dreams. And you may not have the budget to renovate the space, either. But you can do some things with the natural light to make the room look and feel more inspiring. Here are a few ideas to get you started down the right path to more natural light in the kitchen.

Examine Window Coverings
What do you have covering the windows in your kitchen? If they are dark blinds, that could be your entire problem right there! Try something sheer that gives you privacy without taking away the natural light. Or get something you can raise and lower as necessary. Leave the blinds open whenever you want the natural light and try to let it in as much as possible.

New Vinyl Windows
If your windows are old and dingy, they might not be letting in as much natural light as you’d like. You don’t have to replace the windows in your entire house to make a difference in your kitchen. Getting new vinyl windows for the kitchen gives you the opportunity to have better energy efficiency, a new appearance, and much more light. Window frames are much thinner now and you get more glass space, which will allow in more light. Plus, you can switch up the style as well and get casement windows, which allow you an uninterrupted view and even more glass space.

Add New Vinyl Windows
In addition to getting new vinyl windows, you might want to consider adding windows to your kitchen. You could put in some corner windows to bring light into that dark corner by the table. You could put a window above the sink for natural light in that area. Take a look at the windows you have now and the wall space you have available. Where could vinyl windows fit into your scheme to add more light to your room? You could even go up and consider skylight windows above for natural lighting.

Your kitchen is an important room in your house and you want it to have as much natural light as possible. Natural light can add relaxation to your life and help you feel more awake and less depressed. Plus, you don’t have to use your electricity for other lights when you can already see from the sunlight.
