Light is important for our wellbeing, particularly the natural form. It brightens up a room, increases energy levels and makes an indoor living space appear warm and inviting.
Here is our guide to making the most of the natural light in your home.
Aluminium Bi-Fold doors
If you are looking to optimise the light within an indoor space, we recommend looking at glass, bi-fold doors. They provide optimal exposure and can transform a room, bringing you ever closer to nature but in the comfort of your own home.
The more windows, the more light that will appear. With architectural glazing, the room will receive plenty of exposure due to the creative design which works to enhance the natural light. Look for darker spaces which could be improved with a window or a sky-light.
Make the most of mirrors, they double the amount of light and increase the illusion of space. Look at the furniture and see where is best to position it. Try and keep the window area free from furniture and clutter.
Keep trees and bushes cut back to the right level to allow as much light in as possible. If the garden is under construction, discuss this with the designer to ensure they work to the brief and create a layout which supports the increase of light within the home.
Natural light not only gives the feel-good factor, but it also makes a home appear brighter and warm, not to mention it is completely free. For more information on how Cotswold Windows can transform your home please get in touch today.
