When it comes to adding something to your home that adds value, an extension is one of the top choices. However, did you know you don’t have to opt for a standard roof? You can choose to add a roof lantern to your new room, and it will enhance it in ways that you will love. Here we explore the many benefits of roof lanterns and why you should consider one for your next home improvement project.
You may be familiar with the term, or it might be something new to you. A roof lantern is sometimes called a skylight or roof light. A roof lantern is a window in the ceiling of a room, and it’s a fantastic way to add an interesting architectural element to any space. As the window is on the roof, it’s ideal for new extensions or rooms that don’t border external walls.
Conventional windows are installed into the house’s exterior walls, but roof lanterns are fitted horizontally within the roof space. If you are adding an extension or want to add more light to a room, a roof lantern is a perfect option. Roof lanterns are available in a variety of sizes and designs so that you can find the ideal one for your house.
A roof lantern is ideal for loft conversions where you may not be able to install traditional windows. You can also choose a skylight for a kitchen extension to flood the space with more natural light and making the area great for the whole family.
Of course, roof lanterns look superb, but they do so much more than make your home look good. The key benefits of roof lanterns or roof lights are:
Adding more natural light for home is excellent for your health. It can boost your Vitamin D intake and helps avoid SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
By utilising natural light in your home, you will need to use electric lights less, making your energy bills lower.
Modern roof lanterns have excellent thermal properties and help keep the room warm in winter and cool in summer.
Adding a skylight or roof light will make your home more appealing to potential buyers and add value to your property.
