Casa Quickie: Brighten It Up

Want in on one of the cheapest, quickest, and most potent small changes you can make in your home? Let the sun shine in! Since most family spaces (dining rooms, kitchens, living rooms, dens) don't demand the privacy that a bathroom or bedroom does, forgo the curtains or blinds. You can even strip them off your windows altogether if you're feeling particularly brave. By letting in natural light, you'll save energy by using daylighting. Not only that, but all rooms look better when naturally lit, and sunshine improves residents' moods as well. Source
