Etched glass. Another means of tempering the amount of light and heat that enter a space is etched or sandblasted glass. The etching process allows the light striking the surface of the glass to be bent and scattered, which results in a more diffuse and even light.

window to floor & sink with half cupboard & light flooding thru under
Lets more light in, would work for our place too
The open space beneath the sink and all the natural light the design permits.
love the light that comes in at the base
windows. East-facing windows will get strong light and heat gain in the morning, and you won't have sun streaming into your eyes in the early evening when you are preparing dinner. North-facing windows bring in the least amount of light and are most susceptible to heat loss in colder climates. South-facing
windows get the most sun and heat gain throughout the day — something to keep in mind if you live in a hot climate. West-facing windows mean intense afternoon sun, which could be annoying when you are attempting to prepare the evening meal.

clerestory windows. pros, hard for people to look into, very cool and different looking. Cons, don't add a lot of light or energy, more for the looks. I would put these windows across the side of my house
Overhangs with lighting, clerestory windows, wood siding
interesting way to bring in light
also consider how much heat you want to add. Clerestory windows on the south-facing side of your house will generate more warmth from the sun in winter.The clerestory windows on this retreat by Finne Architects in the Cascade Mountains in eastern Washington not only add light and heat during the snowy season

Where can I buy this lighting?
Love the lights in the trees
us: Will you be adding lighting to your patio this spring? Which style of lighting is your favorite?
Don't overlook lighting. String bulbs overhead or add an all-weather floor lamp to extend the amount of time you use your patio. The fire pit here adds both light and heat, and provides a focal point

Light a fireA table that can become a fire pit is the perfect way to help your garden transition
Strings of lights have become very popular lately, and for good reason. Don’t they remind you of a hot summer night in Italy, with a large and boisterous party under the

Natural materials, such as this decomposed granite, may also absorb light and heat. Many of these materials are appropriate for driveways as well as patios.

Light floors that I like!!!!! whoa!
Wood Floors Exposed to SunlightJust like our skin, wood surfaces are sensitive to ultraviolet light and heat, causing the wood to change color or develop an undesirable patina. For discoloration stains: Move area rugs periodically and draw curtains over
Put a bird on a light fixture. OK, technically that should be "put some wings on some light bulbs," but that just does not have the same ring to it. The birdy chandelier by Ingo Maurer is a modern classic
Again, I'm not sure which chairs these are exactly, but I love that they are upholstered yet still sleek. The light fixture is called the Birdie chandelier and is by far the most whimsical choice in the room, balanced out nicely by the Saarinen table. Side Note:

2. Manage the light. Managing the light that enters your home is a way to save on utility bills and make your home a more cheerful place. Strategically placed awnings and roof overhangs can help you do this. In the summer, when you don't want as much light or heat, the sun is higher in the sky. Because
Because the light hits your house at a steeper angle, the same awning that blocks out light in the summer will allow the low-angled winter light in when you need it most. The awning pictured here serves another purpose. Because it is set down below the top of the window, it reflects light up onto the ceiling

the concrete floor rises as a simple plinth, inviting one to move up through the home. The light helps to draw one upward as well. The treads and guard are open and lattice-like, allowing the light (and heat) from the high window to move even deeper into the space. These arose from meaningful decisions
