When the hours of daylight get shorter as weather turns colder, it can have an effect on emotions and behaviors.
Allowing natural light into a room can warm up the space, and according to research it can increase a sense of happiness, too.
One study looked into what effect light exposure might have on daytime functioning. Though it may not be too surprising, it was found that those who had received more daytime light experienced more liveliness.
Light levels were constantly measured and activities were recorded hourly over the span of a year. Areas like activity patterns were reportedly most noticeable during the morning hours and during darker seasons. The quantity of light was also directly related to areas like energy and completion levels, indicating that people in the field study who had more light exposure had more overall episodes of vitality.
Another investigation found that people will naturally gravitate toward sunny surroundings. Participants in these studies repeatedly showed evident preferences for sun filled scenes and environments.
So, in light of the study results here are a few interior inspirations that will make you long for some sunlight induced productivity.
We can’t all have these views but the seamless wall windows and mix of natural and salvaged materials expand the rooms outdoors and would definitely liven up the entire space, as well as those who are in it.
Though the windows in this room are on the narrow side, the use of earthy hues along with the crisp white paint creates a lighter feel.
These rooms literally open up to the outdoors and make the most of natural light by utilizing an entire exposed wall. Converted garages and installing patio style doors instead of windows can offer a lifestyle design that would make the most of sunny days.
