How do skylights work?
Skylights are one of the best ways to bring natural light into your home. But how do they work?
They are installed via a hole in your roof and typically have a glass or plastic dome. The light shines down through the skylight and into your home.
Thanks to their positioning, skylights highlight your home in a way that electrical alternatives and normal windows simply can’t – all while having the option of added ventilation if you opt for roof window skylights.
Where is the best place to put a skylight?
Okay, so where is the best place to put a skylight?
Here are a few things to consider:
1. The angle of the sun. You’ll want to place your skylight in a spot where it will get the most direct sunlight, for maximum brightness.
2. The height of your ceiling. A higher ceiling will make a big difference in how much light your skylight lets in.
3. The size of your room. A smaller room will benefit more from a skylight than a large one since it will make the space feel brighter and more open.
4. Your personal style preferences. As long as you consider the first 3 points above, you can put a skylight anywhere you wish!
