For anyone, having good quality natural light in the home is very important. It can have a big impact on your quality of life, and it also plays a big role in your physical health as well. Here’s the how and why:
Natural light is the main contributor of vitamin D to people, which is developed in people’s skin when exposed to sunlight. A deficiency in it can result in a depressed mood when not too bad, but with more extreme cases of vitamin deficiency you can also suffer from really bad conditions such as rickets.
Natural light can also really help to improve your living environment for reasons beyond the direct health benefits. Research shows how people react positively to sunlight instantaneously, so a bright room can also lead to people being more positive, both about the room and about life. It also requires a lot of windows to achieve, which can create a feeling of more space.
