A 2018 scientific study on indoor environments has revealed that daylight has natural disinfectant properties – something to consider when planning your next renovation or extension.
Researchers at the University of Oregon’s Biology and the Built Environment Center discovered that rooms exposed to daylight have fewer germs – light appeared to stop bacteria and airborne microbes from multiplying. If this is true, then it might be a good idea to add in a few more windows into your loft or kitchen extension?
Aside from elevating mood and saving energy, the potential health benefits of including more windows, a glass wall or even perhaps even a skylight now seem to be growing.
