Did you know that exposure to natural light is good for your body, your brain and your emotional health? Natural daylight in your house can also be good for the environment and your utility bills! There are lots of reasons to let natural daylight into your house – and to install quality windows in your home to get the job done.
#1. Health Effects of Natural Daylight
Exposure to daylight promotes development of vitamin D, which in turn affects bone health and bone growth. Daylight can also boost your immune system and improve your body’s ability to fight off infection, chronic conditions and disease. Exposure to sunlight during the day reduces blood pressure, which in turn can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. When combined with proper diet and exercise, exposure to sunlight can even encourage weight loss!
#2. Natural Light is a Natural Mood Booster
You’ve probably heard that exposure to daylight can fight off Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the chronic feeling of sadness that some people experience when winter comes. That’s a good reason to have more windows in your home!
#3. Natural Light Can Lower Utility Bills
Daylight fills your home and eliminates shadows, reducing the need for electric or artificial lighting in your house. The more windows you have, the brighter your home will be at all hours of the day.
Not only is daylight more attractive than artificial lighting, it’s also cheaper. Having lots of windows in your home helps reduce your utility bills by enabling you to spend time in your home throughout the day without turning on artificial lights.
You can get the most out of your windows and daylighting by replacing room-darkening shades and curtains with sheers, which help keep spaces private but do less to darken your rooms at home.
#4. Natural Light Improves Your Home’s Interior Appearance, Giving It More Value
Daylight makes spaces more cheerful and can also make spaces seem larger than they really are. Daylight adds a feeling of airy lightness to interior spaces, and reduces gloom. This is a part of why daylighting plays such an important role in staging a home.
If you’re trying to sell your home, one of the ways you can improve the way your home looks is by allowing as much light into your home as possible. As already mentioned, replacing curtains with sheers can help with this. Another way to is to keep your windows clean. Clean your home’s windows on a regular basis – at least twice per year, to ensure that your home will look its best inside.
