Daylight has two major advantages compared to artificial lighting. In the first place, daytime reduces electricity bills because it is available for free. In addition, it offers perfect color rendering performance, allowing color and texture objects valued without visual distortion.

There are no artificial light sources that can offer this combination of benefits:
Incandescent and halogen lighting matches color performance during the day, but both types of lighting are inefficient and expensive to operate.
LED equipment offers very low operating costs, but many products do it at the expense of color performance. Some of the latest LED lights are designed to replicate the output of warm and natural colors from incandescent lighting, but this is generally equipped with a higher price label.
Optimizing window orientation for lighting
Windows plays a very important role in any day design because they must be placed so that natural light can enter the building, but at the same time, warming and glare must be prevented. In general, windows on the north and south faces of a building appear much better than those facing east or west.
In Spain and other places of the northern hemisphere, most of the sun available throughout the year comes from the southern part of the sky. Therefore, the window facing south is to get the most during the day, with minimal glare and heating because of the height of the sun above the high horizon and most of the sunlight received at a sharp angle.
