Natural light is essential for all living being and holds many health benefits to human beings. Scientists at the Lighting Research Center (LRC), in Troy, N.Y., have reported that day lit environments increase occupant productivity and comfort, and provide the mental and visual stimulation necessary to regulate human circadian rhythms. And not only for the health benefits can it be an efficient energy saver if used appropriately.
Most of our homes lack natural daylight these days. Homes with fewer sources of natural daylight are often dark and gloomy. But if you are planning your home extension in near future you can definitely emphasize the feature of more natural daylight. Let go through some ways which will help you to bring more light in your house during the process of your home extension.
- Use of glass
The use of glass is one of the most efficient ways to maximize natural light in your house and not only you have the choice of our white traditional glass but textured and patterned glass as well.
- Plan for a conservatory in your home extension
The addition of conservatory in your home extension is one of the best ways you can enjoy natural light. There are so many uses of your conservatory you just have to think out of the box, it could be your relaxing place, your recreational area, your dining room or something else.
- Roof windows
Roof windows are another great option for your natural light source. You can always take the benefit of roof windows where the vertical windows cannot be installed.
- Bi-fold doors
Bi-fold door is another great source to maximize the natural light in the house. And they are good source of ventilation in your house as well.
Along with the addition of natural daylight sources to your home extension, there are ways which you can adapt to maximize the natural daylight
- Mirrors are another good source to bring in the natural daylight if positioned properly
- Selecting the color of your walls also might affect the level of brightness in your home, white and pale colors reflect more light, on the other hand, dark colors absorb it. So while making your choices in selecting the colors, keep these things in mind.
- The floor of your house is another component within your house which reflects light, floor with a good finish will reflect light where as floor with carpet will do the opposite.
