Coastal Transformations Is Here To Help You Deal With S.A.D

Coastal Transformations

It’s beginning to look a lot like…. Fall! We all know what this means, cold weather awaits us in the coming months. Fall can be a beautiful season with the changing of the leaves and it serves to usher in the holiday season, however, it also signals for a stark section of our population that the season of S.A.D is near. What is S.A.D? Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression (also known as seasonal depression or winter depression) that comes and goes with the seasons. It typically starts in the late fall and early winter and goes away during the summer, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Coastal Transformations takes this opportunity to remind everyone who’s dreading S.A.D that natural light can make a significant difference in your symptoms and we are your one-stop shop for a variety of home improvement options and products to help you get more than your fair share of natural light.

 

Skylights: Windows to the Soul of the Home

Skylights have alternatively been referred to as roof windows and it’s easy to understand why. They function quite similarly to windows except that their placement is usually on the roof as opposed to a wall. Skylights help to significantly increase your home’s natural light, which has many benefits. Aside from helping you to conserve energy costs, the natural light that enters through your skylight helps to promote serotonin production in the body which in turn helps to improve your mood, productivity and give an overall feeling of well-being. For those who want all of the benefits of a skylight but are in an area where a skylight might be problematic to install, the solar tube presents a great alternative.

Going Glass… Doors That Is

It’s remarkable the effect adding decorative door glass to your decor can have. Decorative door glass does much more than just improve your home’s curb appeal. It also allows more natural light to enter into your hallway/entryway and brighten up the living spaces of your home. This increased natural light in turn leads to improved productivity, healthier skin and improved mood.

Redilight Solar Powered Lights

Want some of the natural light boosting benefits of a skylight or door glass without having to make that type of investment? Try the Redilight solar powered lighting system. The Redilight is perfect for dark spaces of your home that cannot accommodate a skylight or solar tube. Although not in the same way as skylights or door glass, Redilights use natural light to help brighten your home which provides all of the same mood boosting benefits.

So if you’re dreading the fall and winter seasons because of S.A.D, let Coastal Transformations help you to create a home environment that makes dealing with this disorder easier. But even if you don’t suffer from S.A.D, there’s no reason to not strive to increase your access to natural light, especially over the next few months when changes in weather can make this a scarce resource. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find the natural light boosting solution that is right for you.
