Brighten up your home with Skylights

By Subscribe to RSS | June 22nd 2012 | Views:

If you want to add a new, eye catching feature to a room why not think about installing skylights? Instantly letting in an abundance of light, skylights help to bring the outside in.

Skylights are windows set in the roof of a room. As well as creating a truly unique feature for any homeowner to admire and show off, Skylights help to flood any room with natural light, creating the illusion of more space. Skylights are perfect for rooms which enjoy the afternoon and late evening sun.

Over the past few years, a large range of skylights have developed for homeowners to choose from. Standard flat skylights are popular as they let in the maximum amount of light. They’re also very easy to install which means they are a cheaper alternative for those on a budget. Standard skylights are usually supplied in a square or rectangle shape.

If you’re after a more unique feature, shaped skylights may be for you. Available in bespoke sizes, you can choose the right shape and sized skylights for your home. Frameless skylights are another popular choice and see the glass extend up and above the flat window frame, creating extra height and allowing maximum light to enter the room. Frameless skylights are a similar shape to lantern skylights, especially slim line roof lanterns.

Skylights are designed with practicality in mind.

When choosing skylights look for glass which maximises light transmission but, at the same time, limits the amount of harmful UV rays which can enter the room. Harmful UV rays can damage furniture and fabrics. Skylights which reduce the sun’s glare are also a good idea, allowing you to comfortably enjoy sunny afternoons.

Heat retention is another important factor when choosing your skylights. Reducing heat loss will help your room from getting chilly in the winter months. Look for skylights which are triple glazed and prevent energy loss. It can be hard to clean skylights so again choosing your glass type carefully is important. Many come coated with a film to repel dirt and water. Skylights using this type of glass remain cleaner for longer and need cleaning much less frequently.

For a fantastic range of modern, stylish skylights, take a look at Specialists in skylights, they offer large savings and buying from them rather than the manufacturer could see you save thousands. Using Reflex glass which retains heat, repels dirt and reduces glare and UV rays, their rooflights are the clever choice for your home.
