Where Should I Have My Rooflight Installed?

Here at the rooflight manufacturers Essex clients trust, we are often asked where the best place for a skylight is. Every property and every customer are different, which is why we have put together this handy guide to help you decide on the best spot for a rooflight in your home.

Why Are Rooflights So Popular?

People love rooflights because they add something totally different to a space, and are suited to a huge variety of properties. They provide an interesting point of contrast in a more traditional property, and really elevate a bold, contemporary look in a more modern build.  It goes without saying that they also make a space feel lighter and brighter – and they can even help you to establish a more energy efficient home too. With all of these benefits, it’s clear to see why they are becoming so popular.

The Rooflight Manufacturers Essex Customers Love

We have been making quality rooflights for some time, and we know everything that there is to know about adding them to a property. Some of our customers know what they want right away, and know exactly where their new rooflight is going to go. Other customers are a little more unsure. They know that they want a rooflight, but they just aren’t sure where it would look best in their home. So to help you out a little, we have put together a guide for you.

Small spaces

Rooflights are a really good option in small rooms where there is a lack of wall space, or in rooms where there are no external walls. If you don’t want to start any major structural work, then a rooflight will allow you to let light into a space that previously felt dark and oppressive. Our rooflights are really easy to install, and will allow you to transform a room with relatively little effort or disruption. If you have a space like this in your home, it could be the natural destination for your bespoke rooflight.

Larger rooms

Most people assume that smaller rooms are the natural fit for rooflights, but they can also work really well in larger spaces too! If you have a room that’s particularly long and the windows are all at one end, the distribution of light can feel a little unbalanced. Installing a rooflight in the darker part of the space will ensure that the whole area is filled with natural light. They’re also a great choice for extensions, and look amazing as a feature on pitched roofs.

Custom Rooflights

If you have a space in your home that you would love to transform with a rooflight but it’s something of an awkward shape, we will be able to help. We are one of the largest suppliers of custom skylights in the UK, and we can make them to meet a huge range of specifications. So if you are dealing with dimensions that just don’t work with the other skylights in our range, get in touch with us and we will see what we can do for you.

North or South?

A lot of people aren’t sure whether to have their skylight facing north or south. In some spaces that decision is already made for you, but if you are dealing with a larger room, you’ll often have to make that choice. If your rooflight is facing north, you’ll get relatively consistent levels of natural light all year round. If you want to save on your energy bills and create a greener home, then a south facing skylight will be the best option for your property. So take a moment to consider what matters to you.

Skylights That Are Built to Last

All of our skylights are made from high quality materials, and are built to last. Our eye for detail is unrivalled, and each rooflight has been constructed to stand up to the elements and remain in place securely. They are really easy to fit as well, and comprehensive instructions will be included so you or your builder can go ahead and fit them with no problems at all. That’s why we’re the rooflight manufacturers Essex property owners recommend.
