Natural light plays a huge role in the atmosphere and vibe of your interior. This is why professional interior designers put so much emphasis on controlling the amount of natural light within the interior. The biggest source of natural light in your home is the windows. Several factors contribute to the amount of sunlight that your windows allow into your home. The layout of the interior is one, as is the direction that your home’s facade faces.
But among these determinants, the size of your windows plays a huge role in how much natural light makes its way inside.

Well, the answer is not that simple and there are a few more nuances to consider before deciding on the size of your windows. Even if window sizes may seem like a relatively small detail to consider when designing the exterior of your home, they can have quite a large impact on the interior overall.
