At Capstone Custom Homes, many of our floor plans incorporate large windows to provide abundant natural lighting throughout the home. This isn’t just a design preference — natural light has many benefits that your entire family will enjoy!

Helps Relieve Stress

Studies have consistently found that increased exposure to natural light can help reduce feelings of stress and agitation by helping the brain produce mood-boosting serotonin and endorphins. Simply getting more sunlight will help you relax and feel better. Starting your day with some morning sun will help you be better prepared for whatever the day might throw your way.

Helps Increase Focus

Natural lighting has been found to improve focus and productivity in comparison to using artificial light sources. Whether you’re working on chores or your kids are trying to get through their homework, natural light will give you the energy and mental clarity needed to get the job done. Better still, daytime exposure to natural light will help you sleep better at night, leaving you better rested (and better able to focus) the next day.

Energy Efficiency

When designed properly, large windows can also improve your home’s energy efficiency. You won’t need to keep lights on during the day to see what you’re doing. You’ll also be able to warm your home with sunlight during the fall and winter. Using natural light is an easy way to save money.

As great as natural lighting is for any home, you don’t have to take our word for it. Visit our design center today to learn more about how our floor plans incorporate natural light and see its impact in our model homes.
