3 Ways Of Getting The Spring Sunshine Indoors


3 ways of enticing more natural light into your home

Spring is just days away now and it’s not much longer until the clocks go forward an hour, which is a relief after a long winter. 

The added light that we’ve started receiving is one of the most obvious signs that we’re about to enter into a new season, and it would do you, and your home, good to have lots of that light fill your property. 

Having generous exposure to the sun at home gives you that get up and go, and also makes it a nicer place to live. 

If you wish your home received more of it, this is what you can do.

Get slimline aluminium windows fitted

How much light your home gets will be largely down to your windows as they are the sun’s main pathway indoors. 

If your windows have quite chunky frames, it limits how much glass they have, whereas with our slimline aluminium windows, you get so much more glass than framework. 

It’s the ease with which you can mould aluminium that enables us to create windows with the slenderest profile imaginable, with the glazing encompassing almost the whole design. 

When these windows are in, your interior will be noticeably brighter.

Look outside for obstructions

Is anything sitting directly in front of your windows that may be stopping the sun from passing through as much as it could do, such as an overgrown tree, bush or plant?

If so, give them a trim and cut them back so that you get a full surge of sunshine, which won’t just brighten up your rooms, but also give them some additional warmth, helping you to reduce your heating costs.

Install a skylight or roof windows

We tell any customer who buys a solid roof for their new or old conservatory that it will often benefit from some roof windows so that the sky reaches the space. 

Roof windows are also great for dark lofts and attics, and it’s useful if they can be opened so that you can ventilate these areas in summer. 

Far more expansive than a roof window would be a skylight or roof lantern, a vast glass covering that will be a centrepiece of any house, no matter where it’s fitted. 

It won’t just draw in the sun. It will also draw gasps from those who see it when they come to pay a visit.
