If you are looking for a way to lighten and brighten your home, we would be happy to work with you to discuss how a skylight, or a series of skylights throughout your home, can make a world of difference. One of the great things about skylights is that you can add window treatments for those days when you desire less light—or leave them open all day long. Below are just a few of the benefits of adding a skylight to your home.
Extra Light Without Privacy Concerns
While you can always add a new window to a room that needs more light, you may be hesitant of adding a traditional window due to privacy concerns. Instead of adding a new window that faces a busy street, or your neighbors home or yard—a skylight will provide you with all the light you desire, without decreasing your level of privacy.
Perfect Both Indoors And Outdoors
Skylights can be added both indoors and outdoors. Adding a skylight to your patio or deck allows you to enjoy protection from rain and snow—without blocking your view of the sky. While your main goal of installing a skylight indoors is to improve lighting during the day, your new skylight is also ideal for a romantic evening in.
Maximize Your Indoor Gardens
If you have an indoor plant or produce garden, you may be in need of a bit more indoor lighting for your garden to truly flourish. Adding a skylight will allow you to expand the size of your indoor garden, and the variety of plants and produce you grow in doors. This is ideal for homeowners with small yards—or for those who want to grow their own vegetables and fresh herbs all year round.
At All-In-One Homes, we will work with you to determine the areas of your home where skylights can be added. There are of course limitations to the size and placement of your skylights—depending on the structure of your home. If a skylight is not the best solution, we can suggest the placement of windows to help you achieve your lighting goals.
