Dungeon. Dreary. Damp. All words one might think of when they think of their basement. When remodeling your basement keep the following tips in mind to keep your basement light and bright.
Install as many windows as possible within the structure. In most cases small windows are the only type possible so turn the high windows in to seating areas. Also keep your paint choices light and reflective.
The same goes for the ceiling. Use flat white paint on ceilings to help bounce light throughout rooms. This is an excellent option for basements since any extra pop of light reflection can make a huge difference.
Replace any solid entry doors with glass doors, this includes interior doors as well to pull in natural light from windows in other rooms.Share
