Let there be light! The importance of lighting in your home, both natural and artificial, cannot be understated. This is true whether you are selling your home or boosting your mental health naturally. Luckily there are a wide variety of home lighting options to boost your home's value while improving your mental health,, typically by decreasing anxiety and depression and improving sleep quality. 

Here are some of the top options for frugal home owners that need a boost in mental health while improving the value of their house.

Supplement With Sliding Sash Windows

Increasing the natural light shining into your home is one of the smartest ways to boost your mental health. When it comes to increasing natural light in your home, the more windows you have... the better. Regardless of what windows your home currently has, you can get some sash windows customized to the look and feel you want. The fact that they are low maintenance and highly secure are also great for peace of mind as well. The charming window style will also make you smile!

Lantern Roof Light

A lantern roof is an excellent option for homes looking to add more natural light in a big way. The extra light streaming in from above and the enhanced views of nature will make a big difference in your mood and the value of your home. Lantern roofs are safe, secure, stylish, and energy efficient during all seasons!

Add More Mirrors

Let's face it, we can't all afford to put in endless windows, sliding doors, and skylights. What is the next best thing for adding natural light to your home and brightening things up almost free of charge? Mirrors! Adding mirrors to key areas of your home, especially near doors and windows that provide significant natural light, can amplify your overall home lighting. It can also maximize your artificial lighting as well if your options for lights or outlets are limited. There are plenty of great deals on mirrors at discount stores and online ecommerce shops. Adding more mirrors to your home could end up with you seeing yourself in a whole new light!

Bedroom Lighting, Curtains, & Bulbs

The lighting and accessories in your bedroom is as essential to your mental health as it is to boosting the value of your home price. Before going to sleep you ideally want darker lighting to help your body's natural melatonin production. For this you can use warm color light bulbs and/or dimmable lights. Just make sure to avoid the blue light from televisions, computers, smartphones, and tablets before bed because the lights from all of these screens can over-stimulate your brain instead of relaxing it. 

Also consider light-blocking curtains that you could actually rig up to be retractable in the morning when you are waking up. When you wake up you could do a similar set up with your own overhead or lamp lights if you wake up before dawn or are in a season of especially low light.

Get A Happy Light

Sometimes when it comes to home lighting and mental health, you need a little extra help. That's where a personal wellness light comes in. These bright LED lights are affordable morning companions on your nightstand or at your desk, and can give you a natural mental boost without resorting to caffeine or pills. They also use minimal electricity, so it's very light on the old wallet. They are also useful when leaving your home due to portability, most are the size of a tablet. 

Let Your Light Shine

Boosting your mental health naturally is always a good thing if you can manage it. Improving your home lighting is a great place to start. Let your light shine on to make sure you and your home are at your best.
