The Benefits of Natural Light in Your House

Table of Contents

Many people use natural lighting when designing the interior of their property. Of course there are many advantages to it, such as reducing electricity costs, protecting the environment, making small spaces look bigger, etc. There is also a misconception that artificial lighting gives more light to any room in the home, but this is not entirely true.

In general, a lot of lighting is always good for your house. More natural light means warmth in sunny days and brighter places in the house. On the other hand, dark areas in the house are unappealing and give a feeling of sadness. Not only natural lighting can make your place look aesthetic, illuminate the interior structure and increase the beauty of a space, it can also increase the value of your property.

One of the biggest advantages of natural lighting is energy saving. Lighting accounts for 25-40 percent of energy consumption, so the financial savings could be considerable. There are many countries electricity is expensive, so natural lighting can save a lot of money on electricity bills.

Providing a workspace with natural lighting has also shown to be effective. It is a fact that the sun is related to biological processes in our bodies, creating vitamin D, making you healthier, happier, more energetic and increases your productivity.

Large amounts of artificial light tend to confuse your brain when it comes to the body’s natural clock. Having natural light in your house can improve sleep quality. For instance, the “blue light” that is emitted from our phones, has a negative effect on our body and disrupts the production of a sleeping hormone called Melatonin. Having natural light in your house, will have you more ready to sleep when it’s bedtime.

Another major advantage of using natural light in your home is that it reduces the amount of mold growth in your house, keeping your house healthier for you and your family.

Not enough people are aware of the benefits natural light have within the home. Take advantage of the free light and energy from the sun by making small changes in your house. Change the way you use windows, doors, skylights, mirrors, paint colors and furnishings.
