The Importance of Natural Light in the Home

On a cold miserable February in the UK, it is fair to say that alot of us are still going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark and spending a lot of our free time in the evenings and at weekends in the warmth of our homes.  The type of build of a home varies greatly as to how much natural light is let inside during our current reduced daylight hours. Trees can be an enemy for daylight obstruction and for those of us that live in an older/period property our homes are likely to have fewer windows and perhaps low ceilings and timber beams. It may be the norm to have lights switched on during daylight hours. In our home the kitchen is particularly dark so we tend to permanently have our ceiling lights on. Older homes are generally darker buildings and are more likely to have old Georgian sash box windows (which let in less light than a full pane of glass) as well as a smaller quantity of windows and glass in general and therefore creating less natural light into the home.
