“Stunning Bespoke Skylights to Enhance Your Property”
For many homeowners, bringing natural light into their homes can be an ongoing issue. If your house position is in a shady location, your windows won’t attract much sunshine. A lack of natural light can make a property feel gloomy and impact your mood too.
Bespoke rooflights can bring your home to life by attracting natural light and allowing it to flood through the room. Country Hardwood specialises in bespoke skylights designs that are fully adaptable to the position of your home.
What Are Bespoke Rooflights/Skylights?
You might see different companies referring to rooflights or skylights, but they’re the same thing. In their simplest form, roof lights are giant windows set into a ceiling or roof to encourage natural light.
With energy efficiency being of increasing importance, it’s easy to see why households embrace skylights. They go back to Victorian times when homes would use them to lighten up hallways and dark staircases. While times have changed and we have access to electricity, artificial light isn’t the same as natural light.
Flat rooflights are usually built into a roof, and they cannot be seen. They’re a simple solution to increase light flow into a property but fit the overall design. If you’re looking for a contemporary yet no-frills approach, then flat rooflights will suit your needs.
Roof lanterns are similar in function to their flatter counterparts, but they focus more on architecture. They’re the more traditional option, and the lanterns were popular in Victorian times, but contemporary lanterns are also available.
Bars form the structure of your lantern, and glass panes create a window for the sunlight. They usually have a pyramid shape and are similar to traditional conservatory designs.
