Tips to Help Natural Light Reach Your Home
Tuesday, February 23 2016

Open Your Home and Outlook with Unique Windows, Bi-fold Patio or French Doors.

Research supports the positive effect of natural light on human health. Human beings, and all life for that matter, evolved with the sun and depend on it to function optimally. In architecture, natural light refers to the power of the sun illuminating the desired room to the visual standard of those within—usually by adding a wall of glass doors or large windows that allow those light waves to bounce throughout the space. Here are three tips to consider helping optimize natural light in your home:


- Opening a wall with Bi-fold windows, Bi-fold patio doors or Lift and Slide patio doors or adding large custom windows can be an effective way to illuminate the rooms in your home making them feel larger and more spacious.


- Positioning is important too. If you enjoy the sun’s kiss in the morning, then you might want to think about adding French Doors to you bedroom and make sure they are appropriately sized and face towards the east. Morning sun increases your serotonin and vitamin D levels that help give you that morning boost!


- Room accents, paint color and finishes can play a bigger role in the daylighting process than you may think.  Using mirrors to reflect light, paint colors to boost the glow and luminous accent finishes can allow for incoming natural light to bounce around the room maximizing it’s effects.


Installing the proper doors and windows is essential to satisfy your physical and aesthetic needs for natural lighting.
