Getting the right amount of natural light into our home has been troublesome over the years. In our living room, we only have one window, which means that getting the right amount of natural light into this room has been tricky. Due to the shape of the room, which is a ‘L’ shape, we put the main artificial lights on in there more often than we would like to. Our living room is at the base of our sloping drive, which means that anybody that walks past can see straight into this room.
They often have a good look in too. I’m never sure if it is because they are being nosey or because they notice that we are moving about and it catches their eye. Either way, it often feels like we do not have as much privacy as I would like. I am reluctant to close the curtains though, as this would shut out the valuable natural light that we love so much.
I have been looking into putting some extra curtains or blinds up so that we still have the luxury of the natural light through the window but the privacy of the window being covered so that people don’t look into our living room. Previously, we have had net curtains and bamboo blinds in there but both went mouldy due to the condensation on our old wooden windows. Now that we have plastic windows, our condensation issue has improved so I think it is time to look into making our living room more private again. I have been having a look at VELUX’s Webshop to see if there were any solutions to our light and privacy problem in the living room. I have found that there are many products to choose from that would suit our needs, with options for different colours and various needs.
I think that finding the right product for us will take some consideration. If you have read my posts before about choosing flooring for my living room or my post about my bathroom, you will know how indecisive I am when it comes to home renovation.
