When adding a skylight to your home it is important to consider the best rooms to add it to. There are many factors to consider when choosing the best skylight for your home, but the most important factor is the room. This blog will take a look at many different factors that you need to consider when looking at the best room to add a skylight to.

So what is a skylight? Skylights are an architectural marvel that brings natural sunlight into a room. Adding a skylight not only introduces natural sunlight into a room but helps to brighten the space and even add warmth. So, let’s take a look at the best rooms you could add a skylight too. This is not an exhaustive list, so feel free to experiment!

The Kitchen

The kitchen is usually known as the heart of the home. Not only is the kitchen one of the most used rooms in the house but it is also the room where most work happens. Having a skylight shining natural light over your kitchen benches brings a whole new feel to your home. The ample lighting is perfect to cook in and brings a whole new feel to your home. 

The Bathroom

If you’ve never seen a bathroom with a skylight then you’re missing out! Not only does it brighten up the room but it also makes it feel a lot larger as it makes the ceilings seem higher. It gives the bathroom a whole new feel while you also get to bathe with the natural sunlight beaming in, making for a more relaxing experience. Velux skylights are perfect if you are wanting to be able to open the skylight up like a window to let the steam out and fresh air in and can be the perfect addition to any bathroom. 

The Hallway

The hallway is usually the space in a home with the least amount of natural light. This can make the space feel smaller and unpleasant. Putting a skylight in the hallway won’t only open the space up but it would also make the hallway feel more vibrant! Adding a Solatube skylight to the hallway would be perfect for not only adding natural light but also not taking up too much ceiling space. A Solatube skylight will also capture the sun’s rays and deliver them straight into your home which means your hallway will still be beaming with natural light throughout winter too!
