The benefits of prioritising natural light in your home

There's no better time to install roof windows than when you're undertaking a home improvement project. There are many great reasons to bring more daylight into your home.

Natural light has many benefits for your well-being and health. Sunlight, for instance, is a natural anti-depressant, and exposure to daylight can improve mood.

A good rule of thumb is that in order to ensure an adequate level of daylight, the glazed area of all windows should be no less than 20% of the floor area of a room. By adding daylight to your space, you can create a more comfortable and pleasant environment in almost any room!
