Aluminium sliding Doors, Derby

It’s time to… add light

Trade Windows want to make sure that you start the New Year right. 2020 was the most unpredictable and strange year for us all, so the New Year is the perfect time to add light into your home as it means we can all get ready for a much better summer.

Flooding your living space with extra light is also the key to brightening up the gloomy winter months and it will have a wonderful, positive impact on your happiness and wellbeing.

Your happiness is key

It’s really important to keep your home bright and ventilated. People generally spend most of their time indoors – especially now with the COVID restrictions in place. Introducing more natural light into your home benefits your skin, improves your sleep and helps with your body clock. As we’re staying home a lot more than we’re used to, our mood can be affected. Injecting daylight into your home will encourage growth, strengthen your immune system and regulate your mood – making you happier.

It’s also a great idea to add more natural light if you’re working from home, as this will reduce the need for artificial light which can lead to eye strain when combined with staring at a screen for too long.

Opening up your home

Aluminium sliding doors

One of the things you can do to ensure that both health and happiness levels within your home are the best they can be is create a wall of glass.

It’s worth looking into installing our bi-fold doors. This style of widespan door can drastically improve the amount of daylight and in your home. You can completely fold away the doors thanks to the concertina style, giving your home a more open feeling. The unbeatably slim sightlines give you less frame which means more glass, allowing sunlight to shine directly into your living space, creating a brighter home.

Sliding doors are another great option for letting more light in. The wide openings and lack of obstructing door panes or frames make them ideal for letting the winter sun flood in during the colder months and the rays of summer sunshine to beam inside.

Frame-less windows exclusive to Trade Windows
