How to take advantage of a sunny room [Video]

Hello everyone, and welcome back.

There’s nothing like getting some sunshine. It’s warm, it’s bright and it just bathes everything in its glow. Here’s how you can arrange a room to take full advantage of the sun it gets.

Mirrors and other reflective surfaces bounce light around the room, giving the appearance of even more sunshine. Place a mirror opposite the window, and it will reflect back on it, creating the illusion of a whole second window.

Also, avoid window treatments that block the sun. Lighter, sheer curtains and shades will provide privacy without stealing your shine.

Thanks for watching, and be sure to check back for more decorating tips.
