The sun powers all life. Yet many people seem to fear it, mainly because of the cancer risk of too much exposure to its rays. While it’s true that sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer, the benefits it brings far outweigh the dangers. And to draw more benefit from the sun, we all should let more natural sunlight into our homes.
With more natural light inside our home, you won’t have to turn on the lights during the daytime, thus saving you a lot of money on your utility bill. And when you save electricity, you are also helping the environment in the process.
The more important benefits of the sun concern our health. The ultraviolet rays of the sun act as antiseptic, so it can help reduce bacteria inside your home. Our production of Vitamin B and D also gets a boost when we get more sunlight. And while too much sunlight can cause skin cancer, the right amount of sunlight can help us avoid breast, kidney and colon cancer.
There are many other reasons why we all should let more natural light into our homes. To get an idea how to let the sunshine in, check out how a luxury interior designer does it as shown in the infographic provided by IMI Design, a luxury interior designer.
