Let the Light Shine - Natural Light Increases Your Home’s Value


When planning the design of your home, your windows will play a significant role in the decisions you make. When considering all of your options, it's important to understand the valuable role that windows play in any space. By choosing the right windows, you can increase the amount of natural light that enters your home, and thereby also increase the value of your property!

Make your home more spacious:

When you paint a room with dark paint or cover the walls with dark wallpaper, it will make the room appear and feel smaller. The opposite is true for light colors. These rules of contrast also correspond with light and darkness. If a room has plenty of natural light, it will appear larger and more spacious. A dark room can often come across as cramped. By choosing the right window, you can make even the smallest room in your home appear bigger and more versatile.

Health benefits:

It’s no secret that the warmth of the sunlight filtering through your windows is known for being a great mood enhancer, while darkness can have the opposite effect. For families and those working from home, natural light is essential. The brain can use all the help it can get, and natural light can give you just the boost you need. According to the Lighting Research Center in Troy, New York; natural light helps provide visual and mental stimulation. Their research also supports the fact that well-lit homes are more pleasant to live in and therefore more sought-after. There are endless benefits to opening your home to the possibilities of more natural light!

Experienced Buyers:

According to a Display Villages Report by Lonergan Research, second and third-time property buyers truly value the use of natural light in a space. The better the natural lighting throughout the home, the more likely the buyers were to express an interest in that particular property.


The Lighting Research Center also noted that commercial buildings enjoyed fifteen percent in savings on electrical bills by maximizing natural light. If this is true in the commercial sector, it most certainly applies in the residential sector as well. This makes it clear why experienced property buyers and flippers consider natural lighting a priority. When buying a home, the cost of daily living and upkeep is one of the main concerns.

By choosing the right windows, you can turn even the darkest corner of your home into a quaint and creative refuge. NorthShield Windows and Doors offers a full range of windows in various sizes, styles, and colors! We even offer custom shaped windows, making it that much easier to ensure you find a style that suits your needs ! Call us today for more information about getting more light in your home.

We had our windows installed last summer and absolutely love them - especially the large kitchen window. Our sales rep Jim S. was terrific and knowledgeable. The installers did a professional, skilled job of installing our windows. And the windows themselves are high quality, easy to open and easy to clean - as well as reasonably priced. We are very happy with our entire experience with this company and highly recommend them. Thank you!

We had our windows and door installed by NorthShield, we are very satisfied. The sales man Jim was fantastic, he answered all our question and concerns and made sure we understand all what we were inquiring about. We are happy with the product and the price. The installation crew Anton Alex and Russ were amazing, they were polite, professional and very friendly.They explained and showed us how to operate our new windows and door and cleaned up after themselves even after we told them not to worry about the cleaning. We have recommended NorthShield to our friends and neighbours.
