5 Ways To Maximise Natural Light In Your Vet or Medical Practice
The benefits of natural light have received plenty of attention in the scientific community and media. Studies have shown that staff are happier and more productive when they work in an environment with natural light.
It can save you money on power because you can use less artificial light. And if you’re running a vet or medical practice that promotes healthy, natural remedies, it’s worthwhile to lead by example by incorporating this natural element into your design.
Do you know the best ways to maximise natural light in your vet or medical practice?
It will come as no surprise that the first way to maximise this element in your practice is to use large windows. The larger your windows, the greater the volume of natural light that can enter your space.
Skylights & Doors
Where possible, skylights can also be used to invite more natural light into your vet or medical practice. You can also swap wooden doors for transparent ones to further maximise the light that enters.
You need to use this element for the best effect. One way to do this is with mirrors hung at angles in the right places, as this increases the appearance of natural light in your practice.
Mirrors aren’t the only reflective surfaces you can leverage. Reflective flooring (such as polished floor boards) can also help to move the natural light around.
Dark colours absorb light, but lighter colours reflect it. By incorporating lighter colours into your practice with your choice of paint, carpet, flooring and furniture, you can once again maximise the natural light in your premises.
