Health and wealth are just some of the many benefits natural light can bring.
During these colder months, it is important to maximise the amount of natural light your home has.
Some of the benefits that natural light brings include:
Saves energy and money
A home that has more natural light is also a warmer home. By brightening your home with natural light, not only can you save on electricity but also heating bills as the natural light provides warmth.
As a result of a more energy-efficient home, your impact on the environment will be less and therefore reducing your carbon footprint.
Adds value to your home
Natural light can help to create a greater sense of space. Often potential buyers will pay more for a property which is more open and spacious so it’s good to maximise on natural light where you can.
Improves mental health
It’s well known that sunlight has a positive impact on our mental health – so why not make the most of it by bringing it into your home where you can?
Improves physical health
As well as its vitamin B and D benefits, the sunlight can boost our immune system and improve digestion.
So how do you ensure that your home has enough natural light as possible?
There are a number of different ways to bring in more natural light, which include:
- Choosing blinds over curtains
- Consider installing a conservatory
- Avoid heavy curtains and drapes
- Choose a glass wall instead of a solid wall
- Increase the size of your windows
- Add mirrors that will reflect light
- Introduce a more open plan set up in your home
