In broad daylight
It’s been scientifically proven that exposure to daylight has a positive impact on our mental health and our productivity. Our internal body clock is boosted by it, as it suppresses sleep-inducing hormones leading to higher concentration levels, and the UV wavelengths have a positive impact on our immune system. With increased cognitive function and improved general health, positioning your workspace near a well-lit window has more benefits than just a scenic view.
The hallmark of a Crittall window is the slender steel frame, which is much slimmer than alternative window systems, and as a result allows a lot more natural light in. Adding beautifully crafted walls of glazing and slim-profiled windows can help give a period property a timeless style, as well as define spaces in a new build. Glazed internal walls create an increased sense of space and can connect with the outdoors to bring the calming feel of a garden to your interior.
“Our homes play a big part in our sense of wellbeing, and lighting and exposure to natural light play a big part in this. Exposure to daylight lessens the reliance on artificial lighting, which reduces energy consumption. Cleverly designed and glazed windows play a key role in the distribution of light throughout your home.”
