Kings and queens, prince and princesses, ministers and priests have long vouched for the importance of daylight in their architectural designs. Interior spaces flooded with natural light create a visual appeal like no other. Daylight helps you create energy-efficient interiors and also contribute towards a healthy and comfortable environment. Keeping in mind that most people spend a significant amount of the day behind a desk, access to daylight in workspaces and schools are becoming increasingly important.
The availability of natural light in your home will mostly depend on the design of the building, which is an architectural aspect. As interior designers, we aim to maximize daylight with the use of furniture and design elements. Furniture which is light in colour and is not very bulky in design will allow air and light to pass through helping a room increase the amount of natural light that gets in.
For workspaces and schools, we also encourage the use of natural light to increase energy efficiency for the building. Since it is considered to be an important part of sustainable design, most home owners and businessmen are willing to explore ideas of maximising the amount of natural light that enters the building.
As interior designers, we find it to be important that we create healthy environments for our clients. Whether it is home or workspace, we encourage the use of natural materials with low toxic emissions to improve the quality of the environment inside the house or office. Research shows that students perform better in classrooms with natural light. Even workspaces with more natural light improve the overall efficiency of employees.
Do you have a home or workspace where natural light seems to be a problem? We can help you with design advice that can greatly improve the amount of natural light in a room.
