Lighten Up Your Suncoast Home!

by Nick and Beth Flerlage

Keep your home looking fresh and airy all year round by lighting up your living space. Feel like you are living in a cloud, bathed in that bright Suncoast sun every time you step through your front door. Follow these 5 home owners tips for creating a lighter living space today!


White paint. Instantly brighten up the space (and make it appear larger) by adding fresh coats of white paint. Look beyond the walls and consider lightening up the hardwood floors as well.


Declutter. Open up your space and let more light in by minimizing the amount of stuff you have sitting out. Spaces get lighter with smooth lines. Remove clutter from surfaces, minimize furniture, and add hidden storage systems throughout your home.


Mirrors. Mirrors have long-since been a go-to trick for opening up a space. Create the illusion of more space by adding mirrors. Along with wall mirrors, consider mirrored back splashes or accessories, such as trays, glass top tables, or crystal decor.


Light linens. Create a cozy, breezy spot for you and your family by adding airy curtains and crisp white throws and pillows throughout the space.


Grays and blues. Add some subtle pops of color throughout your home with soft shades of gray or blue.
