Having as much natural light as possible surely is the best means of creating a healthy interior environment. Maximize the use of available windows by getting rid of thick curtains and shades. Add additional windows wherever possible, especially in those rooms you spend most of your daily time. Of course, our lives do not stop when the sun goes down.
