Maximizing Natural Light: Strategies for Brighter Custom Homes

Dec 28, 2023

If one of the goals you have during your custom home design process is to maximize the amount of natural light that enters the interior, there are plenty of ways you can go about it. Understanding the following strategies can help you strike the perfect balance between beauty and functionality as you work toward brightening the interior of your custom home:

Consider Light Interior Colors

One easy way to make sure the interior of your custom home is designed to allow for maximum natural light is to choose light colors for your walls, furniture, and décor. Pale and neutral colors allow light to reflect throughout your home, which can have a wide-ranging effect from room to room.

Understand Daylighting Techniques

When you’re going through the custom home design process, ask your custom home builder about daylighting. This is the technique of strategically placing windows and skylights to create an influx of sunlight into your home. Not only that, but it involves balancing heat gain and loss and glare control, making for a better-designed home.

Invest in Expansive Windows & Doors

There are other ways to incorporate windows and doors into your goal of maximizing natural light in your home, and that’s simply by investing in some that have expansive glass areas. Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors are bound to not only flood your home with sunlight but add a level of visual interest and luxury to your home as well.

 Josh recently replaced all my windows and doors and I couldn’t be happier! He was communicative, very professional, gave great recommendations, and the end result far surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Josh. I had a great experience working with him, especially as an out of town homeowner. 
 I've worked with many contractors on my rentals, Joshua by far was the most pleasant experience I've had in working with a contractor! I've referred him to my HOA as a solid point of contact for any and all contractor needs! 
 In Steamboat Springs, Material is hard to get and most home companies are quite unreliable. These guys on the other hand were very good. Josh is a man of his word. His work is clean and solid. His experience shows in how he plans a project. We are very pleased.
