To boost natural light in a property, many people will install windows, glass doors and roof lanterns. A roof lantern may be the best installation for this purpose, as they receive much more natural light being on a horizontal plane compared to a vertical one.
The large surface area of the glass panels used also enhances solar saturation of the room below. This in turn improves the temperature regulation and reduces the need for heating in winter, as natural sunlight will heat up the room in the day.
Research has also demonstrated the great benefits of natural light compared to artificial light – it has been seen to improve general health, quality of sleep and mood. At the same time, natural light is free and environmentally friendly, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint.
It should also be noted that adding large windows and doors to improve lighting can come at a price. Most people will experience a light versus privacy trade-off, whereby the more windows and doors added, the more exposed your property is to nosy eyes. With a roof lantern, maximum light input can still be achieved, ensuring privacy at all times. Curtains and blinds are also unnecessary, saving money and improving the aesthetic of the room.
