Four Benefits of Natural Light
If you’re a fan of Grand Designs or Location, Location, Location, you’ll have heard the presenters extolling the benefits of natural light in design. As well as making a home more welcoming, attractive and easier to sell, natural light also has a number of other benefits to consider, which is why you should aim to get as much of it as possible.
It Can Save Money on Your Bills
First and foremost, the more natural light you have within your home, the less reliant you’ll be on artificial light which can cost a significant amount of money to run. By utilising sunlight in your home as much as possible, you’ll only ever have to turn the lights on when it starts to get darker and during the winter months of the year. In summer, your savings could be huge!
Sunlight Can Benefit Vision
Staring at the ‘blue light’ of computer screens and mobile phones all day is proven to do damage to your eyes and can lead to you needing glasses. However, having plenty of natural light in your home and your office has been proven to reduce the risk of nearsightedness - particularly in children. When we’re developing, it’s important to get as much sunlight as possible.
You’ll Have a Better Night’s Sleep
Similarly, research also shows that an abundance of natural light will give you a much better night’s sleep. If you increase the amount of sunlight you’re exposed to during the daylight hours, you’ll be more rested when it comes to the nighttime. If you get a good amount of direct sunlight in the opening hours of the day, you’re more likely to kip better that evening.
It Can Improve Your General Health and Productivity
More generally, being exposed to a lot of natural light helps to reduce stress, supplies you with vitamin D, puts you in a better mood, reduces the likelihood of headaches and generally improves your wellbeing.
