Maximise Natural Lighting
Using the sun to create natural lighting is the best gift that mother nature has given to us. It’s one of the most effective ways to change the mood and atmosphere of a particular room. When building a home, try to get as many windows built as possible to allow natural lighting to pierce through. However, if you only have limited amount of windows, an easy way to increase natural lighting is to;
