Natural light is a great way to make the inside of your home more inviting, not only that but it can be healthy to have natural light streaming into your home. The light from outside can provide vitamin D, an essential vitamin for well being. It can help regulate sleep and control things that have to do with your mood like depression. There are several things you can do to bring natural light into your home and one of those things is a skylight, another is something as simple as paint that is reflective and encourages light to shine.
- Skylights are key to get more natural light into the deeper parts of the home that lack direct access to windows.
- An often overlooked material is glass block which is both function and structural. They provide privacy and security without compromising lighting.
- The finish of the paint in a room plays a big role in how light reflects off of it. Glossy paint will produce the best surface to reflect light.
