Research shows that an adequate amount of light improves mood and energy levels, while poor lighting contributes to depression and other deficiencies in the body. The amount and type of lighting we receive directly affects our concentration, appetite, mood and many other aspects of our daily lives.
But how can we have a healthy circadian rhythm if we spend most of our time in environments flooded with artificial light? Physicians and mental health experts who specialize in this subject tend to agree that taking advantage of sunlight during the day can positively affect people’s well-being and productivity.
Epcon Communities has taken this philosophy to heart, or you could say that over the years we’ve kept our eyes on the subject. This is why all of our home designs feature windows that fill the homes’ interiors with abundant natural light, which is accentuated by our open interiors and seamless connections to the outdoor living spaces of our private, garden courtyards.
An abundance of natural light inside a home is a design aspect that is often overlooked by many builders.
The many windows in an Epcon home provide wonderful views of your private courtyard, your plants and your landscaping. Whether it’s the blooms of spring, the green lushness of summer, the colors of autumn or birds at the feeder during a quiet winter snowfall, you’ll always have a vibrant view of life from most rooms in your new home.
The windows in your new Epcon home also allow for the fun and style of window treatments, from stately blinds to elegant curtains and valances. Or, consider the simplicity of no window treatments at all in some rooms, for full, clear views of the outside and unobstructed fresh breezes with the windows open.
Visit a local Epcon community soon and experience our model homes to see the importance we place on ample windows and sunshine (and moonlight views, for that matter). We’re confident that you’ll “see the light” in our design aesthetic.
