How to create a happy house in Derby

Natural light is a must-have feature for many homeowners and that’s why renovation projects often include amazing glazing.

Exposure to daylight has been linked to improvements in our wellbeing and mood so innovative use of glass has become an extremely popular, go-to product.

Homeowners across Derby often talk to us about wanting to create a light and airy interior packed with wow factor and we can help. At Trade Windows, Derby, we know how to create a happy house.

Let there be light


The physical and psychological benefits of appropriate natural sunlight are now undisputed.

Natural light can make a room brighter and there are a number of ways you can increase your home’s natural light.

Today, it’s all about beaming in as much sunlight as you can into your home and making your house a truly healthy and happy place to live.

With the right use of glazing, Autumn and Winter don’t have to be gloomy, Summer won’t be too hot and Spring will be the best season ever if you kickstart your project with us.

Introduce specialist glazing in your home and you’ll banish the blues. There’s a link between sunlight, our circadian rhythms and mood – and it’s all about the drop in serotonin levels when there’s less sunlight.

Even if you don’t have SAD (seasonal affective disorder), less exposure to sunlight can cause you to feel grumpy! So, if you’re about to plan a renovation project in your home, think about how to make a tired room bright again.

With the right widespan doors, you can create the most stunning glazed extension. All you have to do is decide whether to have aluminium bifold doors or aluminium sliding doors.

Both products will flood your home with natural light and will turn your outside space into another usable room. They are also low maintenance, aesthetically pleasing and give you the flexibility to create a truly stunning interior design project.

Our Derby customers love our widespan doors and it’s all because of the amount of direct daylight they let into a room. Remember, when you skin is exposed to sunlight, it manufactures vitamin D.

Dark home? What about a rooflight?

Rooflights are a great solution if you’re living in a dark house. They work wonderfully well in glazed extensions and can beam in a huge amount of direct light.

Our rooflights come with super slim frames and this means you’ll get as much daylight flooding in as possible.

Skypod rooflights fit into a flat room so sunlight shines directly down, leaving you to soak up the rays 365 days of the year.

We have several styles available too, with the smallest at 750mm by 750mm to the largest at 2750mm by 8700mm.

Never seen a Skypod rooflight? Our full sized kitchen extension display at our London Road showroom is fitted with a stunning rooflight, so come and take a look.
