Perhaps one of the most common daylighting methods is with the use of skylights. They are a very effective way to add a maximum amount of daylight to a dark space. If you decide to install skylights, however, just remember to use double-paned windows and be sure the flashing is done properly, otherwise, this could create several issues.
Light tubes are another way your home can benefit from natural light. Light tubes are covered in a highly reflective material that effectively channels sunlight; they are also fitted with a lens designed to increase low-level light whilst also minimizing the intensity of the midday sun. A diffuser then helps to evenly distribute daylight.
Clerestory windows are also a very good way to add natural light. Clerestory windows are designed to be wide but short and fit high on a wall. This permits lots of natural light to enter the room but because they are high on the wall the roof overhang prevents too much sun from coming in during the hot months.
If you are looking to add natural light into your home, why not see if these methods would be a possibility?
