With summer drawing to a close and the nights growing longer now is the perfect time to consider the ways in which to make the most of the dwindling sunlight. Airy and light spaces have a positive effect on those living and working within them and roof lanterns are the ideal way to create spacious environments. They transform dark areas by maximising natural light, creating a feeling of height and space in an otherwise flat, low-ceiling room. Historical uses of roof lanterns continue to be practical in new build and refurbishment projects today.
A roof lantern gives you two main benefits. One, it allows natural light to pour in from all sides, which can drastically change the way your room feels. Two, a roof lantern adds a stunning feature that can be enjoyed from both inside and out. Roof lanterns are usually positioned to define a particular area within a space such as over a kitchen island within a flat roof extension; to create a dining area within an open plan kitchen diner or to brighten a dark stairwell or landing.
We can build a bespoke roof lantern to any size assuming structural considerations are met and offer advice on aesthetics and technical matters. Considerations about the specification of glass used and ventilation requirements are often best discussed directly with us. Please call to discuss your need to brighten up your home.
