Natural Light In Homes: Flat Skylights & Roof Lanterns
If you’re looking for ways to illuminate your home with natural light or ways to add to the marketability of your house, then consider installing a skylight or roof lantern. Both options will make an attractive additional window feature and will dramatically open up the appearance of a room effortlessly. Here at ATT Fabrications, we’re taking a look at the benefits of skylights and roof lanterns, and exploring our very own range of glass sky lanterns to help inspire your next natural lighting project.
What Is A Roof Lantern?
A roof lantern is often a raised glass structure which gives the feeling of height. The beauty of a roof lantern is that it provides the perfect opportunity to potentially add value to your home whilst encouraging more light to enter your living space.
Introduce More Natural Light To Your Home
Glass roof lanterns and skylights are perfect for adding an extra element of natural light to extensions, dining rooms and kitchens. A flat skylight is said to add 25% extra light to a room, making it the perfect solution for loft spaces and extensions. With the installation of a glass roof lantern or skylight, you can also be making a move towards a more energy efficient home. A rooflight may reduce the need for a ceiling light, as natural light will be cascading into the space below during daylight hours. With more sunlight comes a more spacious feel to a room, so try opening up your dining room or loft area for an extra airy feel.
Add An Architectural Feature
Not only does a glass roof lantern act as a great way to bring natural light into your home, but they also look fantastic! This is where a flat skylight may fall short in terms of design if you’re looking for an extra impressive rooflight solution. The glass dome design works well as an architectural feature in your home, and can modernise your house effortlessly. If you have an open plan living area, a roof lantern is also wonderful for evening entertaining or relaxing as you’ll be able to view the stars in the night sky. Glass sky lanterns have functional and aesthetic benefits that certainly add to the ambience of a room.
