3 Helpful Tips to Increase Natural Lighting in Your Home

As most of us spend more time indoors staring at laptops and mobile phones, experts have proven that being outside has a positive effect on you. The more sunlight we are exposed to, the more serotonin we produce. This is proof that making the most of daylight from our homes is essential. Here are a few ways to effectively increase natural lighting.

3 Helpful Tips to Increase Natural Lighting in Your Home

1. Make Use of Sun Tunnels

Sun tunnels are a great addition to areas of your home where minimal to no light is visible. These are ideal as they channel sunlight from your roof, down a highly reflective tube into the specific room below. Note that these can be installed on a pitched roof or a flat roof to welcome daylight into rooms where it’s most beneficial.

2. Skylights Installation

The biggest benefit of skylights is how they let natural light into your space. And with that light comes solar heat. Heating your place with sunlight can save on your heating costs during the winter months. This can also let the fresh air in so you won’t have to worry about opening all your doors and windows when it’s too warm.

3. Try Changing Your Windows

Increase the natural illumination by utilizing larger windows like bay or casement windows. You may also consider custom windows to match your home. This makeover would allow you to let in a greater amount of light as well as ventilation inside your place.To learn more about our replacement windows or to start a conversation with an experienced design team for your future projects, call Renewal by Andersen® of St Louis at (314) 332-2364, or fill out our contact form.

"Renewal by Andersen of St Louis is an outstanding company. Our third phase of replacing windows was accomplished flawlessly, just like the first two phases. All interactions, from ordering to installation, were very professional. The installers were knowledgeable and went above and beyond to solve an issue when a minor structural problem was encountered."
