ENJOY A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER HOME WITH CIRCADIAN LIGHTING
Experience A More Connected and Balanced Lifestyle With Human-centric Illumination For Your Luxury Home
Light is a fundamental element of your daily life; it shapes the way you see the world, colors perceptions, and directly affects your general wellness. In the past, lighting design for the home focused on the utilitarian aspects of lighting your way and control based on saving energy. Unfortunately, this overly narrow focus disconnects you from the benefits of natural sunlight and how the right lighting lifts the spirit.
The daily cycle of the sun, from the hushed hues of the morning, the clarity of mid-day brightness, and the warm colors of the evening, are instilled in our evolutionary biology. Integrating these natural rhythms using circadian lighting creates a dramatic change in how you live, work, and rest.
Are you intrigued by the possibilities of what circadian lighting can do for your Portland, OR home? Continue reading to learn more.
Daylighting, the process of maximizing sunlight in a home, is a tenet of the biophilia theory of design. The philosophy seeks to blur the lines of your interior spaces with that of the natural world just outside your windows.
The sun’s natural light has many benefits, from stimulating the production of serotonin, a hormone tied to happiness, to improving your outlook and positive attitude. In addition, the vitamin D generated is shown to aid in the creation of neural pathways, helping to increase focus and cerebral connections.
A circadian (also called tunable) lighting system maximizes the use of the sun, with interior luminaires matching the color and brightness outside throughout the home. As part of an integrated smart home, you can furnish just the right light or allow the sensors and geo-location programming to gradually shift the light over the course of the day.
REST EASY IN YOUR DREAM HOME
It is a well-established rule that better sleep equals a more productive day. Are you getting enough? Nearly 53% of Americans report that they have troubled or inconsistent slumber, leaving them fatigued and struggling. New research shows a connection between a lack of deep REM sleep and cognitive disorders later in life. Integrated lighting that is more human-centric keeps you in balance with your natural cycles, letting your body better prepare for rest.
Just as the type of music you play over your whole-home audio system invigorates your workout and soothes you in the spa, light influences your state of activity. Imagine waking to the soft hues of the morning as the motorized shades gently reveal the day. As the day progresses, the fixtures respond with brighter and more intense illumination, keeping you centered on the tasks at hand. Finally, your home transforms with warm colors as the evening winds down, signaling your subconscious to prepare for sleep.
