Make the Most of the Fading Light with Apropos.Published on 20th September 2018
Wan’t summer lovely? A true scorcher! And just as we were all getting used to it though, the darker, colder nights are setting in again. It’s all for the best in the long run, but it doesn’t stop us from bemoaning the loss of all that lovely sunshine and those long, lazy evenings.
There are very many things to love about glass architecture – the look, the feel, the contrast and the ever-changing views of the natural world – but if we had to choose our very favourite thing about living under glass here at Apropos, it would have to be the influx of light. Whether you have a conservatory, orangery, or just a couple of small skylights, you are inviting light into your home, making the days feel longer, your home feel brighter, and you feel happier.
Natural light is proven – and often prescribed – as a means of combating depression. It delivers vitamin D, which helps regulate the immune system, keeps bones healthy, can help prevent weight gain and aids brain function. Natural light also reduces our dependence on synthetic lighting, which not only lowers our fuel bills, but also reduces the frequency and intensity of headaches and eye strain. As a final health benefit, natural light can also help to reduce the presence of mould in the home, improving the quality of air and reducing the likelihood of respiratory problems.
With an Apropos glazed extension you’re able to make the most of the available daylight, welcoming it into your home early in the morning and last thing at night. Whether you relish the aesthetics, embrace the health benefits, or simply enjoy the extra space to relax and unwind, Apropos can open all sorts of doors – patio, French, sliding, or bi-fold!
