Natural light is an essential component of any happy home. Making rooms feel bigger and more vibrant, natural lighting can add a lot to a space.  you in feel-good serotonin chemicals every time you bask in it, natural can genuinely make your home a more enjoyable place to live. 

With this in mind, here are our top tips to maximise natural light throughout your home.

Windows to the world

The one and only way to get light into your home in the first place is to have windows and doors to the outside world. Luckily there a range of products that one can choose to incorporate into their home to truly maximise natural light access.

Whether you’re looking to add skylights or porthole windows to smaller spaces in need of a splash of light or a gorgeous set of french doors to adorn a living space or kitchen, a good quality window is key.

Pay attention to your garden

If your garden is filled with tall trees and overgrown hedges blocking any ray of sunshine coming your way, it’s unlikely that you’re going to benefit from all of the changes you plan to make. 

With this in mind, don’t forget to spend some time designing your garden with light to your property in mind. Prune back any trees or bushes that may be blocking your windows and consider planting flora that doesn’t have the ability to grow too big.

Lighter colours = lighter room

No matter how much natural light you shine into a room, spaces with a dark colour-scheme can instantly suck out the sunshine. Lighter colours are always going to be your friend when it comes to natural light as it both reflects and creates the illusion of a larger, less oppressive space. 

Look to invest in off-white colours for the best effect, however, as a brilliant white can give a room the effect of feeling cold and uninviting. 


If you’re truly looking to maximise natural light in your home then look no further than the conservatory. A stunning addition to any home, a conservatory really excels in bringing the outside in.

Whether you’re lounging in the sunshine of a summer afternoon or cosying up with a book on a chilly winter morning, you’ll be able to bask in a sea of natural light, giving you that boost of positive energy you’re looking for.
