It is common knowledge that comfortable, well-designed homes combine artificial light with the light coming from outside the building. While artificial light of the right color, intensity and distribution is essential for creating the right environment when it is dark outside, making the most of natural light is just as important for the comfort of your home. Fortunately, there are many great ways to achieve a home that harnesses natural light – here are some:
- Daylighting – the process of incorporating natural light is easier to make use of when your building is still in the design phase, but existing buildings can also be transformed to let in more light from outside;
- Installing larger windows – the larger the windows on your building, the more efficient the light penetration. While not many homeowners will replace good, but undersized windows just to let in more light, if you are planning to get new windows anyway, you might want to consider getting replacement windows that are larger than your existing ones;
- Installing new windows – cutting walls to create openings where there were none before might seem like a lot of hassle, but the project can transform a dimly lit room into a pleasant, cheerful space and will also help you reduce your lighting-related energy bills.
