Upgrade the Aesthetic

When looking for a home, one of the top requirements for homeowners is natural light. Natural light can make your space look much larger, brighter, and more welcoming. Depending on the skylight style, it can add some aesthetic flair to the space as well!

Improve Your Air Quality

If you install a skylight that opens and closes, you’ll also have the added benefit of improving your home’s indoor air quality and ventilation. Even when it’s chilly outside, it’s still important to open your home up for short periods of time to allow fresh air inside.

Boost Your Mood

Have you ever been SAD during winter? Not sad, but SAD. It stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder; it’s a type of depression linked to the changing of the seasons. Most people begin to feel the effects of SAD in the fall, and it continues through winter. Luckily, one of the treatments for SAD is light therapy.

Adding a skylight to your home will allow a lot more sunlight into your home and brighten everyone’s mood!
