Having your home fitted with roof lanterns will allow natural light to flood in, opening up closed, poorly lit rooms/spaces by introducing roof lanterns to new, or preexisting home extension structures. Natural light can open up spaces, this will make them feel less cramped, more open, as well as brighter & airier.
Roof lanterns are ideal for any rooms you feel would benefit from more natural light. They’re easily installed, and can instantly make a room feel more spacious. It’s surprising the differences they can bring to a room, especially in orangeries and garden rooms, where you want to bring the outdoors in. As well as providing more light, we can install panels that open, which allow a cool breeze to come through the room on hot days. During the winter months, they help with heat generation, and the thick glazing means warmth is trapped inside your house keeping you and your family cosy.
When people have roof lanterns installed, the light that comes into the building will save on money on electricity, particularly when the summer months are here, due to the extended hours of daylight. The roof lantern will most likely pay for itself long before its use by date. The light that pours in will completely transform the whole atmosphere of a room.
