You probably know that natural light makes a space look larger, just like lighter colors does. But adding natural light isn’t always as easy as it sounds. If you have a smaller kitchen, trying to revamp the space can be frustrating. You want functionality, but you want to get natural lighting and other elements with the El Dorado Hills, CA window replacement process. How do you get it all into one space and bring it all together? Here are some replacement window options to consider:
You have to place the windows with care because you don’t want to take any functionality away from your space. Consider a window over the kitchen sink, if there isn’t one already. Or perhaps enlarge the window that is already there, if you can. The more glass space you can get in the room, the brighter it will feel. If there really isn’t any wall space that you can give up around the cabinets you need, consider skylights. You can add light without giving up any functional space.
It might be a little more uncommon, but if you really want some windows in the kitchen, you could put windows between the upper and lower cabinets. Consider sliding windows for ventilation or picture windows if you just want the light and a little bit of a view.
Minimize Window Treatments
If you want to make the most of any windows you are able to get into the space, it is best to keep the window treatments as minimal as possible. You could put up a small fabric valance to give some style, add softness, and bring a finished look to the window. It will let in all of the light without taking anything away from the window. If you want something over the window, try something sheer that will filter the light, but still let it in.
Keep The Clutter Free
Once you have windows, it’s tempting to place things on the window sill to decorate the space. Try to keep the windows as free from clutter as possible. Place your plants in another room to get light. The more things you have blocking the windows, the smaller the space will feel and the less light will be able to get through to your room.
