Daylight benefits your health

The benefits of natural lighting are endless. For starters it makes your home great. It really is the best kind of light to have and will bring out the true colours of all your furniture and fittings. Any chance to make your home look nicer has to be a good thing, right?

Natural light will also make you rooms appear larger and brighter, enhancing their appeal to friends and family. Architects use this all the time when designing homes and buildings.

Sunlight is the best way get Vitamin D. We need Vitamin D to help absorb calcium and phosphorous which are needed to keep our bones healthy. It is also an immune regulator and can help arm our defences to things like the common cold.

On top of this, research shows it will also help to keep our brains active (especially in later life), maintain a healthy weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, asthma and some forms of cancer.

Natural Lighting will decrease your energy costs, freeing up hard earned money to spend on things you and your family enjoy. A day at the beach is much more fun than stressing over the size of your latest electricity bill.

Another great benefit of having natural light in your home is that it can reduce the amount of mould and mildew, making the home a healthier place to live in.

On top of all this, research also shows that natural light will increase productivity and make you feel more positive. This has far reaching effects, especially in children. Children who are more productive and happier will get better grades at school and potentially excel in other activities such as netball or footy. We all want our kids to have the best chance in life so why not build this into the design of your home – use windows and skylight to take advantage of natural lights.
