With temperatures dropping here in Eugene, it’s essential to take advantage of every opportunity available to warm up your home. From textured blankets to the additions of warm tones throughout your home, there are lots of ways that you can ensure that your house is the last thing that feels like the weather outside.

One of our favorite ways to warm up a space is by introducing ambient lighting to the rooms in your home. This method brightens up the room in no time at all and requires very little work to get the job done. Keep reading to see a few of the ways that ambient lighting can help warm your home up.

Manage Natural Lighting

Natural lighting is one of the best features to have in your home when taking advantage of the great weather outdoors. However, when the outdoors are looking dark and gloomy, it can be extra challenging to warm up your home. If your home has a lot of natural lighting throughout, then you may be familiar with the struggle of hiding the gloominess of the outdoors.

Rather than letting the darkness cool down your home, make the most of these natural features by adding sheer curtains that hide the gloomy weather and still add light to the space. This is an affordable and clever way to warm up your space while making the most of the features that your home already offers. Enhance the level of warmth by choosing a warm color when selecting your new sheer curtain.

Accent Lighting

While major lighting features in your home can brighten up the space, they aren’t always warm additions to a home. In fact, most major lighting features are too bright for a home and can actually wind up making the house much cooler. By adding accent lighting to a room, you can brighten up the space even more while creating a warmer effect.

Some of the accent lighting additions that are extremely popular and successful are smaller lights that go along the ceiling of the room. By having these lights as accent features to your primary source of light, you can balance the overall light source and make the space feel so much warmer.

Paint Color

The last addition that we’re going to touch on today is something that is extremely easy for you to do and offers a little more freedom of choice. Painting a room can brighten up a space quickly and change the look and feel in one fell swoop. Finding a color that warms up a space and works with your ambiance can be tough. If you’re not entirely sure which color will add warmth to your space, ask a professional — they’ll be able to tell you how the color will work with the lighting fixtures that you have in your house and whether or not it’ll result in something warm.
