If you’re thinking of remodeling your home and want to add a special touch, the addition of a skylight is an excellent choice. Skylights are perfect for bringing light and ventilation to otherwise dim or stuffy rooms, and work particularly well in the following locations.
If you want more natural light in the bathroom but don’t want to worry about ordering special glass or window treatments to maintain your privacy, install a skylight! A venting skylight is the best option for a bathroom. Due to the high moisture content in bathrooms, mold, mildew and rot have the tendency to form if the room is not adequately ventilated. This is why, if you install a skylight in the bathroom, it should be able to vent to allow excess moisture to escape.
The Master Bedroom
Imagine a skylight in your bedroom, letting in daylight while also allowing you to gaze at the stars each night. As with a bathroom skylight, a skylight situated in the bedroom will add to your privacy, enabling you to prepare for the day or get ready for bed without having to readjust the curtains each time. A skylight or sun tube can also be a great option to light a closet.
There are several benefits that come from having a skylight in the kitchen.
First off, the natural light from above brings an additional element that provides more balanced lighting, which is ideal for food prep such as peeling and chopping vegetables.
Secondly, with a skylight installed in the ceiling, more wall space is opened up, which can increase your kitchen storage by allowing for additional cabinetry.
Finally, installing a vented skylight in your kitchen is a great way to help get rid of those pesky cooking odors that tend to linger long after the meal is over. A vented skylight such as the solar-powered “Fresh Air” skylight will do all these things, as well as help draw out warm, moist air that’s released when cooking.
