Looking at these pictures of before and after, notice the difference in lighting between the two. Three main factors were focused on: bringing in light through expanded/added windows, actual lighting in the ceiling, and the atmospheric lighting through paint colors. These three techniques can be applied with great effectiveness to any project, large or small. When we bought our mid-century home almost 20 years ago, the master bedroom had a narrow bank of windows ¾ of the way up the wall which was common for this time period of home construction, but made the room feel smaller than it was and dark. Our contractor/designer designed the removal of these windows and the insertion of a sliding glass door unit. The difference this made to the room was astounding!
