Instead of thinking that you are stuck with a dark closet consider adding a window or clerestory (top of the wall) windows that allow light in without losing valuable wall storage space. If your closet is on the interior of your home and doesn’t have an exterior wall look to a solar tube that bring light from your roof down into your closet. These are energy efficient because they don’t use electricity and they illuminate your closet with natural glowing light.
The innovative lights fixtures and fittings available from Hemmesphere website include the Auric Lattice light shades which are carefully engineered in renewable laser-cut birch-ply and come pre-assembled in a range of sizes. The limited edition range is an extension of the basic range and features only 1000 products which are hand finished with unique additions using corroded steel spun copper perspex and aluminium.
A home automation system allows you just a bit more control than simply turning over a key which is a great relief to some homeowners. You can easily set up a time for the person to enter your home and let him or her in yourself through your smartphone or iPad.
Letting natural light into a dark colored room will help the colors read more inviting and allow you to coordinate shades of dark textiles and finishes with lighter ones. Add sheers or lightweight and light colored drapery at windows to allow natural light to pour in but to control harsh glares when the sun is bright.
As mentioned earlier a home automation system saves money. The most beneficial impact the system will have is on your monthly utility bill. No longer will you be spending money for household appliances left on in your family’s absence.
Through the home automation system you can easily keep tabs on your children. You can ensure that they make it safely into the house each night letting them in without getting out of bed to greet them. You can also see their comings and goings on security cameras as well as make sure the porch is lit when they arrive home.
