Natural lighting does wonders for custom homes, and it’s easy to plan before construction. When you build a custom home, you aren’t restricted by anything, and you don’t have to settle for someone else’s vision. It follows that your custom home should not limit your creativity when it comes to windows! Natural lighting has many benefits that you may have not considered–read on to find out what they are!
Show the View
Building a custom home means you can build on any plot of land, so you can choose the view you like best. If you’ve got a particularly spectacular backdrop, a large window can let in natural light, and it can provide access to your amazing view. There’s a potential here to add to your home value.
Improve Your Mood
It’s proven that natural lighting and sunlight can improve your mood. Increasing access to both of these light sources can be extremely beneficial for your mental health. You’ll be more likely to use a room with plenty of natural light than one that is closed off. For an extra relaxing space, you could consider adding a sunroom to your custom home.
During the winter, your bills will increase due to using your thermostat. Heating is the number one cause of an expensive energy bill, and reducing it can make for an uncomfortable and miserable winter. However, with natural lighting and large windows, you can use the sunlight to heat your home! Opening the blinds can help heat your home with a greenhouse effect, meaning you’ll be able to keep the thermostat on a lower temperature while still staying comfortable.
