Lots of homeowners are choosing to add more space to their homes with extensions, but this can end up leaving the original rooms looking a little dark and dingy in comparison.
BOB recently caught up with those bright sparks at VELUX to find out more about the benefits of bringing light to a single storey extension by using roof windows.
- Did you know natural light is proven to perk you up? So any additional light in a space could help bring a big smile to anyone entering it.
- You might think roof windows are hard work to keep ship-shape and shiny, but in reality they are designed to be maintenance free, making them ideal for out-of-reach areas.
- Say goodbye to awkwardly reaching for that high roof window. Remote control roof windows, blinds and shutters from the VELUX INTERGRA® range are perfect for letting the sunshine through with a touch of a button.
- Roof windows are a great way of expelling nasty kitchen odours. They add extra ventilation to humid rooms so you can bid farewell to lingering food smells.
- Did you know installing roof windows can bring twice as much light into a room compared to vertical windows alone? Roof windows can carry light into that gloomy middle room and brighten up a space.
- Roof windows increase your exposure to natural light during the day, which could lead to a better night’s sleep.
- Nothing beats admiring a glorious sunset, so being able to see the beautiful colours from your home is bound to improve your mood.
- Flat roof extension? No problem, curved glass rooflights are perfect. They let the drizzly British weather slide away leaving a clear view of the slightly stormy sky. There’s nothing we can do about the weather though, sorry.
