The summer is a perfect time to experiment with different lighting for the rooms of one's house. Joanne Granger, a lighting expert from EzineArticles.com, writes that the fastest way to redirect a room's lighting is by arranging the furniture in a new pattern and enhancing the effect with strategic window shades.

By simply moving furniture and installing new shades, a homeowner can make a room can feel completely new, Granger claims. She also recommends painting a room with light, reflective colors.

As for window shades, the best idea is to adjust their lengths until you find just the right amount of light. Once you've managed to control the brilliance of your residence, you won't have to waste energy or emit greenhouse emissions as much, simply because you'll have a natural alternative.

Sunlight can offer a calming, dignified glow to a living room or kitchen and it can help to wake you up in the morning. However, Granger warns that too much sun can result in a headache or a harsh glare in the area.

For this reason, it's best to invest in shades that can reduce or eliminate glare but still allow light to illuminate the room. Soft sheer shades and solar shades both actively dull the sharp amount of sun in a room, but still let in its glow.
