Your home’s windows are not just installed to maintain comfort and reduce your heating and cooling costs. These fixtures can also give your living space the natural lighting it deserves. It is called daylighting, and this architectural concept not only makes your room spacious and bright. In a way, getting enough sunlight while indoors plays a vital role in your overall well-being.

Health Benefits of Natural Light

Exposure to sunlight helps the skin absorb Vitamin D, which is an essential nutrient that lowers the risk of various ailments, particularly in the bones. Opening your curtains every time you wake up in the morning to bring sunlight in allows you to get a healthy dose of said vitamin.

Also, with fall already here, some people can experience serious depression, mainly because there’s not enough sunlight around this time. Utilizing regular and egress windows to let natural light in over the next few months can lower the chances of a disorder called seasonal affective disorder.

Another benefit of daylighting the interior is its correlation to sleep patterns. Mental health and sleep often go hand in hand, which is why it is not surprising for many people, whether at home or in the office, to experience better sleep the more they get exposed to natural light.

Ways to Bring in More Natural Light

Aside from windows, there are other ways where you can maximize sunlight to brighten up your interior. Hang up at least one mirror to reflect sunlight coming from the window and make the room brighter. Also, you may want to consider ditching your existing curtains. With the sun as your “alarm” upon waking up, you can recalibrate your sleep-wake cycles, especially if you are not getting enough sleep at night.
