Bringing the Outdoors In With Integrated Design
Did you know that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors? While you may spend less time inside when you live close to Delaware’s beaches, that’s still quite a bit of time spent in your house.
While being outside has so many benefits for our mental and physical health, it’s just not practical or likely that we’ll be outside all the time. It’s why we put so much effort into designing our homes just the way we want them.
That’s why incorporating as much natural light as you can in your home design is so important. It has tons of benefits, from improving our mood to making our home feel spacious and welcoming.
Vitamin D, aka the “sunshine vitamin” is being proven to work gainst cancer, heart disease, fractures and falls, autoimmune diseases, influenza, type-2 diabetes, and depression.
Sunlight is more effective at boosting serotonin, aka the feel good hormone, than any other kind of light.
Natural lighting during the day helps us sleep better at night.
With all those benefits it’s no wonder that modern home design is taking advantage of natural light and making the outdoors an integrated part of homes (like in our Vista Series).
Check For Energy Effiency
With an abundance of natural light can also come issues in the energy efficiency of your home. After all, that light is being let in by windows and the more windows, the more opportunities there are for air to enter and escape from your house.
So when you’re planning how to let in all that sunlight, make sure to consider the quality and material of your windows. You’ll want them to be highly efficient so your home can continue to heat and cool the space without issue.
