Skylights are a great way of letting that sunshine and natural light flood into your home.

Have you noticed how sunny days brighten up everyone spirits? Even the odd freezing, but bright and sunny winter day seems so much better than the grey and miserable days we’re used to at this time of year.

Skylights are a great way of letting that sunshine and natural light flood into your home, which not only brightens up your space and your mood, but also saves you money on energy bills! Here’s a few examples of how our skylights have transformed living spaces.

Installing skylights in bathrooms can be a fantastic way to flood relatively small rooms with natural light. They can also be used instead of regular windows if you’re after that sense of privacy, but don’t want to sacrifice any natural light.

Here we can see that the placement of the pyramid skylight means you could look up at the stars whilst in the bath – what a relaxing way to end the day!

This beautiful, traditional cottage has benefited from both bifold doors and flat rooflights.

From a traditional miner’s cottage to the other end of the spectrum, this state-of-the-art contemporary home has similarly benefited from the vast amounts of natural light which a skylight brings.

A modern design statement, this fixed flat rooflight allows natural light to pour into the stairwell and bounce off the white walls. The result is an area truly immersed in sunlight.

 

Whether your home is traditional or modern, small or large, you can be sure that more natural light will transform the space. Skylights and bifold doors are a great way to do this, as well as adding a sense of space, style and connection with the outdoors.
