Homeowner Topic: Invite Arizona's Sunny Skies Into Your Home!
Taking advantage of opportunities to incorporate natural light into our homes has many benefits! Putting light in varying places and angles, especially when it comes from above, creates a pleasant sense of well-being and an uplifting of mood. In Southern Arizona, where it is sunny on average of 299 days per year and Northern Arizona with 260 clear or partly cloudy days - this makes sense!...
