Skylight Home Feature: Let Natural Light Flow into Your HomeAugust 6, 2021
Isn’t it nice to live in a home where natural light can flow and you can bask in daylight? Well, there’s a home feature that you might want to consider whether you’re buying, building or rebuilding a home—skylight windows.
What is a skylight home feature?
Skylight is a window attached to the roof or ceiling. It allows natural light to flow into your home and gives the space a modern touch. It is ideal for stuffy, cold or dark rooms.
Benefits of skylight home features
1) Brighten your room
We’ve already mentioned that skylights let natural light flow into your space, therefore brightening up the space. And with that, your room looks more spacious and cosy. But more than aesthetic reasons, brightening the room with natural light presents benefits for the occupant. Studies suggest that natural light can improve mood, reducing stress and anxiety. It’s also known to improve focus and concentration capabilities.
2) Better ventilation
You may opt to open your skylight windows to let fresh air into your home. This can help freshen up your room and cool it down during warmer months without turning on the air conditioner.
3) Save energy and electricity
With skylight windows, you may choose not to open the light and save energy and electricity. And with better ventilation it brings, you can cut down on air conditioning costs.
4) Increase the resale value of your home
Aesthetic changes or features such as installing skylight windows can make your space more attractive, upping the resale value of your home. A study by Building Technology Innovations also revealed that natural light can make your home look bigger and open. This makes buyers willing to pay more if ever you’re planning to resell your property.
5) Wow your visitors with a nice view
Don’t you just love looking at the sky? With skylights, you can bask in the beauty of the sky all you want. Plus, it’s another factor that will leave your visitors in awe when they come over at your house.
A word of caution
Before you get excited about having skylights in your new home or rebuilt home, make sure that you work with only the best and trusted builders. Adding a skylight in your home design plan requires enough knowledge as wrong placement of your window can bring in too much heat which you don’t want. Plus, if your skylight is not leak-proof, it would bring you more harm than good especially during the rainy season.
