How important is good lighting? According to Psychology Today, natural sunlight aids productivity and a good nights sleep. Those who see natural light opposed to artificial light reported feeling more alert during the day and sleeping longer during night.

If you’re considering adding a skylight, let your health be the first reason to do it!

Here are six more reasons your life will be better with a skylight:

1. You Can Watch the Stars

Bedroom skylight anyone? Seeing the stars from the comfort of your bed or couch is unbeatable. We don’t have to get into this now, but your romantic life will surely improve with some inside star gazing, too.

2. You Can Make Pseudo Stained Glass

Paint the edges of your skylight to bring in a pop of color with the sun. This is a great way to brighten a room and play with the decor. Blue is a great color to start with!

3. Natural Light Makes People Happy

Working outside will improve your mood, but it’s not always pratcial. This is the closest you can get, without setting up your desk in the park. It also makes people productive, as we’ve discussed.

4. Two Words: Full Moons

If viewing the stars from your house isn’t enough, think of what a treat it will be when a full moon shines in. You won’t even need to turn the lights on!

5. Your Energy Bill Will Decrease

If you rely less on electric lighting, your energy bill can drop up to 10 percent. If you’re worried about a skylight affecting the temperature of a room, don’t fret – with the right glazing you won’t have any heat loss or overload from a skylight.

6. Skylights Are Private

Skylights let in natural light but also maintain a privacy that windows can’t offer. A skylight is a great option for somewhere like a first floor bathroom or changing area by the pool. This way the room won’t be completely isolated.

Drooling yet? Check and see if there are any skylight installation deals in your area.
