Light really affects the psychology of design and space. Natural and artificial lighting should work in balance so that the room can perform all its functions regardless of the time of day.
Bright natural light helps improve mood and concentration, especially in young children. Studies have also shown that exposure to morning sunlight can help prevent disordered and later bedtimes and circadian rhythm problems in children. And we all know that in order for children to behave well and show better results, they need a good night’s sleep. In an ideal world, your child would have one room for sleeping, one for playing and one for studying – we see that in most homes children combine all of these in their room – although in truth you should associate their bedroom mainly with sleep, so choosing calming tones at least in the sleeping area of their room will really help.
Bright natural light improves mood and concentration. Consider views from windows and skylights, which can help children visually relax by helping to regulate their circadian rhythms. To make the most of natural light, make sure the eaves are long enough so that the curtains can be moved completely away from the window when they are open.
A lighting scheme can make or break the design and feel of a room and is vital in a space used by children. Use full-spectrum bulbs, not fluorescent or incandescent bulbs – poor lighting, which can be too yellow, too cold or white-blue, can cause anxiety and depression.
