The term "rise and shine" can never be more true in a bedroom greeted with the light that mother nature has gifted us ever so generously. And what better way to welcome this light than setting the stage for it by designing your bedroom accordingly — both your body and your wallet will be thanking you. With some interior design techniques, you can harness the natural daylight that enters your bedroom and make the most out of the benefits it has to provide.
How Does Natural Light Work
To understand how natural light works in a room, it would be a good idea to get familiar with the concept of daylighting — without having to dive deep into its physics. Daylighting involves the introduction of controlled natural illumination into a room. This illumination can be in the form of a skylight as well as direct or indirect sunlight. Naturally, light enters through a window and is reflected off the surfaces. Several factors affect the path of this natural light; such factors include positioning of windows, size of windows, and reflectiveness of indoor surfaces. The science of natural lighting is not only about how daylight travels inwards to a room but also how you can take measures to maximize its effect and use it to your advantage.
