external insulation wrap - issue with window recess

last year

I’m hoping to add external insulation wrap to my 1930s two-storey house (solid wall build). My only concern is that the windows are pretty small so it’s already a somewhat dark house, especially downstairs. I think these houses usually require 100-130 mm added to the exterior. Any advice on how much this will affect light getting into the property? I can’t afford to get new windows, but I’m could the ones I have possibly be moved forward to avoid becoming more deeply recessed with the wrap?

Any suggestions or experience on this much appreciated, thanks!

    The front of the house, I may also get the window frames sprayed a lighter colour to help brighten things up!
