Over the years we have seen many different design techniques and trends come and go within architecture. One thing that is never up for debate though, is the desire for more natural light in any property. We all feel better when we are sat in natural light for longer periods of a day, and with the addition of a roof lantern to a property you can certainly do just that. If you are a contractor or property developer looking at ways to improve the aesthetic of a client’s home, or looking at options for new-build designs, roof lanterns are an elegant way to add value to a property and make it a much nicer place to live.
Most roof lanterns are added to an extension on a property, most desirably on a south-facing side of a house. What a roof lantern achieves is a way of bringing in much greater levels of natural light, for a lot longer during the day. What this means is that you have an extension on the property that can be used as a relaxation space, a dining area, playroom, office, or party room to entertain guests, and it will always have more light than the other areas of a home. This is an exciting and attractive proposition to potential homeowners, or those looking to refurb a property they have lived in for a significant period of time.
Roof lanterns are relaxing, add value to the property, help bring peace and better sleep patterns, but also allow more light to filter into adjoining rooms that might otherwise have been in darkness much earlier in the day under the previous configuration of the house.
There are a few different shapes and configurations of roof lanterns – each with its own definition and benefits. This is where it helps to have an expert in the field of roof lanterns to assist in choosing the correct type of roof lantern for a specific project or budget. You can install pyramid roof lanterns, octagon roof lanterns, hexagonal roof lanterns, and other shapes, as well as flat roof skylights, and a wide range of shapes and sizes. With this much choice there is always a roof lantern or flat roof skylight that will suit a property that you are working on. The style is elegant, and the benefits are vast.
The popularity of roof lanterns is at a higher rate than it ever has been before. Finding a supplier of roof lanterns with the experience and know-how to lend a hand in choosing the right type of roof lantern, helps contractors and developers to make the right choices in what they offer to clients. A roof lantern has many benefits, and there are a few variations, alongside a flat roof skylight. Bringing plenty more natural light into properties, boosting relaxation levels, increasing the value of a property, and looking great, a roof lantern is a good addition to any home.
