How To Add More Light Into A Garden Room
There are several ways to gain extra light into a garden room:
Use larger or addition glass windows and window panels: These allow natural light to enter the room and can be opened for ventilation. This is probably the most popular option for people wanting to add additional light into their garden room.
Install mirrors: Mirrors can reflect natural light and make a room feel brighter.
Use light-coloured paint: Light-coloured walls and ceilings will reflect more light and make a room feel brighter.
Install LED lights: LED lights are energy-efficient and can provide bright, even lighting.
Place plants: Plants can absorb sunlight and improve air quality, and can also reflect light in the room.
Use a combination of window treatments: Use a combination of window treatments such as sheer curtains, shades, and blinds to control the amount of natural light that enters the room.

The Benefits Of Extra Light In A Garden Room
There are several benefits of extra light in a garden room:
Increased natural light can improve mood and overall well-being. Exposure to natural light is known to boost vitamin D levels, which can help with depression and anxiety.
More light can make a garden room feel larger and more open, which can make the space more comfortable and inviting.
Additional light can also make a garden room more functional. For example, if you plan to use the room for reading or working, extra light will make it easier to see.
Increased natural light can also reduce the need for artificial lighting, which can save on energy costs.
Extra light can make the plants in the room thrive, as plants need light for photosynthesis.
It can also make the garden room more visually appealing, as natural light can highlight the colours and textures of the room's decor.
If you are using the garden room for entertainment or as an extension of your living space, extra light can make the room feel more inviting and comfortable.
The Disadvantages Of Having Too Much Light In A Garden Room
There are several potential disadvantages of having too many windows or glass panels in a garden room:
Increased heat loss: Windows and glass panels can allow heat to escape from the room, making it harder to keep the space warm during colder months.
Increased heat gain: During hot summer months, too many windows and glass panels can allow too much heat to enter the room, making it uncomfortable to use.
Glare: Direct sunlight shining through windows and glass panels can create glare, making it difficult to see or work in the space.
Privacy: Having too many windows and glass panels can make it difficult to maintain privacy, especially if the garden room is located in a busy area.
Security: Large windows and glass panels can be vulnerable to break-ins, making the space less secure.
UV damage: Too much sunlight entering the room can cause fading of furniture and flooring over time.
Maintenance: Windows and glass panels require regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them in good condition.
Cost: Large windows and glass panels are often more expensive than other types of construction materials.
