If you think a skylight’s just a skylight, think again!

Whether you’d like to illuminate a main living space, bonus, or closet, here are some skylight options to consider!

The Best Places to Include Skylights

VELUX Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights

Skylights have so much to offer a household. They bring in natural light and help cut energy costs because you won’t be reaching for the power switch during the day. They can even open to release stagnant air and improve your indoor air quality. With mood-, budget-, and health-boosting benefits, we understand if you feel overwhelmed trying to decide where to install your skylights! So, here are some of the most common rooms to include skylights, and why each one makes a great choice.

Why to Use Skylights in Outdoor Living Spaces

VELUX Skylight

The appeal of outdoor living space has made it one of the most in-demand features for new homes and renovation projects. Homeowners love being able to step out for some fresh air from the comfort of their own properties and having the option to host outside. Covered patios, decks, and porches are especially popular because they offer shelter from the elements; most people assume they’ll have solid roofs overhead, but skylights actually make a wonderful addition just as they do inside. Here’s how outdoor living space with skylights will add value to your home!

Tailor Your Skylights with Shades

Skylights add so much value by allowing natural light inside, but depending on the situation, there are times when some people wish they could turn them off. Whether you’re concerned about intense light—in certain seasons or at particular times of day—or you want to block it all out at will, there is a solution! Invest in skylight shades and you can control the natural light in your interior to your liking. Here’s what you should know about them!

How Skylights Boost Household Efficiency

If you want to build a greener home, be sure to explore skylight options! Not only can they cut your electricity usage by reducing the need for artificial light, but they can also save energy by helping with climate control. Today’s skylights are a world away from the first versions that earned a bad reputation for leaking—they offer better glass and multiple layers of protection to maintain a tight building envelope. Here’s why skylights should be included as part of any energy-efficient home.
