Allow natural light into your kitchen and save money on energy bills, help save the environment, make your kitchen appear larger, and create a cheery welcoming room.
Ways to maximise natural lighting when designing your kitchen:
- position windows to allow the most amount of light in. You need to be clever with this design – you don’t want to over-heat a room during summer, and you don’t want to compromise too much on insulation.
- consider what trees and building structures decrease the amount of light entering your kitchen and adjust your design to suit
- use skylights
- use sun tunnels
- choose lighter wall colours to reflect the natural light entering the room
- position your food preparation areas close to the light’s entry
