My kitchen is dark

Natural light in a kitchen is often put aside because it is not prioritized in a home. The kitchen benefits from natural light thanks to its opening into the living room in the case of an open kitchen. But the closed kitchen is often a narrow room with a small opening, making this dark kitchen.

My bedroom is dark

A bedroom is a place of rest for many, and so natural light’s primary role is to wake up in the early morning. However, for any activity in the dark bedroom, artificial light is required, which causes migraines, eye pain.

My living room is dark

The exposure of your living room and its opening(s) are the key elements for access to natural light, but that’s not all.
