A lot of the time when we talk in our blogs we speak about allowing natural sunlight into your home. It is always seen as a great benefit to you, but why is this? In today’s blog, we are going to take a look at how natural sunlight actually helps, improves and benefits you and your lifestyle.
First, we are going to talk about saving money. Who doesn’t want to cut costs and save a few quid here and there to spend on the more luxurious things in life. The Sun is a natural free source of heat and light and therefore the more of it you get into your home the less electricity and gas you will need to use to heat and light your property. This will over time result in reduced energy bills meaning you get more money to spend on whatever you see fit.
Sunlight can make a room seem more appealing and spacious, helping your property to look more attractive and inviting. Dark and gloomy rooms are often neglected as they can look cramped and uninviting.
Sunlight is good for your personal health. It helps to produce Vitamin D which doesn’t occur in many foods and therefore it is vital that you get a good dose to keep you fighting fit and healthy. Vitamin D is vital for bone growth and development especially in young people and a lack of it can result in bone and muscular pain.
Natural Sunlight is a stimulant helping to produce more serotonin in your body which can help with productiveness and happiness. Who doesn’t love being out in the sun rather than cooped up in a small dark office space? Bring more sunshine into your home and you could see an upturn in moods and productivity.
How do you I get more Sunlight into my home?
The answer is easy, replace existing windows if they have poor visibility, add patio or bi-folding doors which allow more sunlight through than standard doors or even build an extension such as a conservatory which allows as much sunlight into your home as possible.
