How to Embrace the January Sunlight in Your Home


The process of adding more natural light to a home design brings many benefits to a homeowner. Daylighting, as it is known, comes with many health benefits and assists in reducing the cost of energy consumed in that residence. By expanding windows facing the west, introducing a single skylight to a hallway, or even adding TDDs (tubular daylighting devices) in your kitchen will not only brighten your home but it can also assist in uplifting your home comfort.

Currently, there are many ways to incorporate daylight into your residence. It is vital to note that what works in one Hamptons residence will not necessarily work in another. The following are ways to embrace the January sunlight in your house:

Winning with Windows

These are old standards, but remodels of this nature will maximize the exposure of your house to the sun. For example, installing large floor to ceiling windows in your family room will bring in light without altering your interiors. The kitchen is another ideal location for windows as the natural light makes it easier to cook compared to electrical bulbs.


Tear Down Your Walls and Widen the Doors

This remodeling idea is associated with great room living concepts. Great rooms, sunrooms and conservatories have been known to eliminate walls that may be present in-between spaces. They are also associated with adding open living and connectivity spaces in a home. More open doorways and reduced walls means that more natural light will find its way into your house.

Open Up to the Idea of Glass Doors

Dim or dark rooms could be harsh for some people. When you add solid panel doors, the result can be a bit dreary. But this shouldn’t always be the case. Sunrooms, conservatories and many styles of glass doors will assist in getting in more light to a house without shutting out any part of the building from another. By adding single doors, french doors, or sliding glass doors you will be opening up your house for more natural light without really exposing the residence to security risks.

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use.
