You have searched for your dream home for what seems like forever, and now that you have finally found it, you discover it has no windows in a main room. Now, no window in a bathroom or nursery is probably fine with you. However, if the home does not have a window in the living room or master bedroom this can quickly put a stop to any warm fuzzy feeling over the marble bathroom and chef-inspired kitchen. Can you live without a window in a primary room? Absolutely! It will not be nearly as dark as you might imagine either. These tips will help.
Lighting – Since there will be no natural light pouring through the windows, you will have to be happy with artificial lighting. With the right lighting options, you won’t miss natural light. Forget about a boring ceiling light. Recessed lighting is a great idea in a basement with fairly low ceilings. Pendants and chandeliers are very much in style, and lamps are available today in more designs than you can probably imagine. Have a few options in a room, so you can make it brighter, when needed. A dimmer switch is always a nice feature to have.
