Architects and interior designers have been making use of natural light when it comes to interior style for decades and there are a number of reasons for this be it making your home more stylish or having an overall beneficial impact on your health.
If you cannot afford an interior designer or architect to create natural light for you then there are plenty of tips you can follow. For example, it is important to make the most of the natural light that is coming through your windows. To do this you must get rid of the heavy materials that block out light and install products like shutters that will allow you to let as much light in as and when you need it. Of course that does not mean you need to compromise on security or style. We’re always happy to cater to your home’s specific needs.
Firstly in the home industry and your interior style it’s all about space. People will pay through the roof to have more space than others and if they can’t afford that extra square foot then they cheat. One of the greatest way to cheat is through the use of natural light. Natural light plays a major role in our spatial perception. This is because the light that is let in illuminates the room and allows us to see more of the space that is already there, thus making the room seem larger. Having a larger room adds a more expensive and luxurious feel and this is before you have even decorated.
Additionally to natural light allowing us to make the most of the space available it also is a great way to save money. With resources getting fewer and fewer our electric bills are growing and a lot of us tend to waste money on keeping our interiors lit. By making the most of the natural light available you will save money on having to keep your room lit and keep wasting electricity confine to only the night time
As well as saving money yourself you will also be helping to contribute to a more sustainable environment. Environmentally friendly interior style has become a new trend and some interior designers even choose to decorate a home with the sole intention making it eco-friendly. Without wasting resources, you can happily spend the money you save elsewhere in your home.
Since our homes are so important and we spend the majority of our time in them it would be great to know that it’s having a beneficial impact on our health. Natural light doesn’t just contribute to your interior but helps to create a healthier environment for you. Light its is believed to have healing benefits with ultra violet being a natural antiseptic. In addition to this you can receive some of the vitamins that your body needs like vitamin C and D. Furthermore, natural light helps to stimulate your appetite and digestive system and help work towards a healthier immune system. So not only can you love your home but you can love how you feel in it.
One of the major factors when it comes to decorating your home is the colour scheme you choose and with the lighter that you let in the more vibrant and natural your colours will appear. Let’s face it, its hard to see just how beautiful colours are if you can hardly see yourself.
So really if you’re not making the most of the sunlight coming into your home then you’re not making the most of your interior.
