How To Get Plenty Of Natural Light In Your Home

How To Get Plenty Of Natural Light In Your Home


Thanks to electricity, lighting the home is easy as we can get all the light we want with the flick of a switch. If you want a different atmosphere in the home then candlelight can really help set the mood and you can also change the brightness of electric light to help achieve the effect you are looking for. As useful as artificial light may be to us however it is highly advisable that you allow as much natural light to enter the home as you can. Natural light from the sun is important to our health as it is thought to help us to process various vitamins and minerals and has a positive effect on our mood. If you would like to encourage natural light into your home, you have some options available to you.


The most obvious of all is to use windows as they offer little or no resistance to allowing the light in at all. Some rooms, such as attics, are unlikely to have a window already but there is no shortage of options for windows that you can install provided, of course, there is an exterior wall or roof to use. With windows installed you can then use blinds and curtains to help regulate just how much light you allow into the room because as good as natural light may be for us it can get a little too bright at times.


Sunlight cannot bend around corners on its own so some parts of the home may not be accessible to the rays of the sun. By using some mirrors, however, you can direct the path of sunlight helping to bathe otherwise sheltered parts of the home in the rays of the sun. You could mount the mirrors so they can be adjusted allowing you to change the direction of the sun to fit your mood whether you would like as much sun light coming in as possible or if you are in the mood for darkness. You will need to bear in mind that this method could intensify the rays of the sun which could possibly make it too bright and concentrated sun beams could even pose a fire hazard.

Sun Tunnels

In some rooms of the home it is not possible to use windows to allow the light in and options such as mirrors are not always practical. One option could be to use a sun tunnel which will help channel the light from outside into the home. Part of the tunnel is mounted on the home’s exterior where there is plenty of light and the tunnel will run through part of the home to reach the room that needs more light. As with other sources of natural light, the amount of light allowed into the room can be regulated helping you to get the right mood in the home. If you do have a room in the home that appears to have no access to natural light a sun tunnel could be just what you need.

Jamie Finch likes to have a lot of natural light in the home as it makes to help the place feel more cheerful. He gets his windows and other supplies from Ken’s Yard, a leading online retailer of VELUX Windows.

7. Flamethrowers

There are currently no federal laws governing or restricting the ownership of flame-throwing devices. Some states have laws restricting possession of flamethrowers, with violations only considered to be misdemeanors, but 40 states have absolutely no laws whatsoever concerning flamethrowers. Only in America would a device capable of launching rivers of fire at people be less regulated than marijuana.

Fantasy is a popular genre, having found a home for itself in almost every medium. While fantasy art and recently fantasy films have been increasingly popular, it is fantasy literature which has always been the genre’s primary medium.

Modern fantasy, including early modern fantasy, has also spawned many new subgenres with no clear counterpart in mythology or folklore, although inspiration from mythology and folklore remains a consistent theme. Fantasy subgenres are numerous and diverse, frequently overlapping with other forms of speculative fiction in almost every medium in which they are produced. Noteworthy in this regard are the science fantasy and dark fantasy subgenres, which the fantasy genre shares with science fiction and horror, respectively.

The conflict of good against evil is a theme in the most popular forms of fantasy, such as high fantasy; normally, evil characters erupt from their lands to invade and disrupt the good characters’ lands. J. R. R. Tolkien delved into the nature of good and evil in The Lord of the Rings, but many of his imitators use the conflict as a plot device and often do not distinguish the sides by their actual behavior.

In some works, mostly notable in sword and sorcery, evil is not opposed by the unambiguously good but by the morally unreliable.

Heroic characters are a mainstay of fantasy, particularly high fantasy and sword and sorcery. Such characters are capable of more than ordinary behavior, physically or morally, or both. While they may at first be less than the role required, they grow into it. This may take the form of maturation.

Many protagonists are, unknown even to themselves, of royal blood. Even in so fanciful a tale as Through the Looking Glass, Alice is made a queen in the end; this can serve as a symbolic recognition of the inner worth of the hero. Commonly, the tale revolves about the maltreated hero coming into his own. This can reflect a wish-fulfillment dream, or symbolically embody a profound transformation.

In a fantasy, magic is often overwhelming in presence, although its precise nature is delineated in the book in which it appears. It can appear in a fantasy world, or in a fantasy land that is part of reality but insulated from the mundane lands, or as a hidden element in real life.

A common trope is that the ability to work it is innate and rare. As a consequence, the person who work magic, who may be described as a magician, a wizard, a sorcerer, or many other titles, is a common figure in fantasy.
