Want to know how much natural light a room — or an entire home — gets?

Turn off all the lights.

As my impressed open house visitors saw for themselves yesterday at 2275 Youngman, there’s practically no difference in how light the Kitchen (above) is with the lights on or off.

The explanation?

There’s a huge skylight directly above the center island (the unit is a top-floor penthouse).

P.S.:  the silestone countertops do show off better when the under-cabinet lights are on.
