Is y'all's house as dark as mine? My house has 20 windows and two sets of French doors ... not to mention a front door with glass in the top ... and in spite of all that, this place is just dark!
I reckon part of it is the windows, being tall but narrow. Once you put blinds on them (I'm kind of into privacy here in the burbs), you get even less light.
Add the ton of trees the previous owner so graciously planted right up against the house 30 years ago, and you get darkness.
Last winter we decided to save money. We kept the lights
off during the day. Can I just tell you something? It was dreary. And depressing. Something I do. not. need.
Well, we're not doing that again, I'm turning the lights on every day because leaving them off did not save us one penny on the electric bill. Not one. Nothing.
And just to be sure, I've stocked up on lamps.
I've shopped yard sales and thrift stores,
and now I've got lots of lamps.
Floor lamps, table lamps, lamps with nice shades, lamps without ...
I've done what I had to do to spice things up -
added fabric, adding dangling things,
whatever it takes.
How's the lighting situation over at your house? What kind of light do you have - natural or store bought?
Tell me about your light.
