If your home seems dull and could use a little more natural light, there is an easy way to get that without going through the hassle of adding more windows. Skylights are a popular feature that you can include in your home to bring in light without sacrificing privacy or wall space. If you have ever wanted to add skylights to your home in Conroe, here are four rooms where they make a great addition.
Natural light in a bathroom is great, but having a large window in this room can seriously impact your privacy. Instead of letting in light from the sides where neighbors can see in, skylights bring in that light from the roof, safely out of view of surrounding homes. Plus you can get skylights in Conroe that include ventilation to reduce humidity and prevent mold and mildew.
Adding a skylight in the kitchen can open up a smaller space while providing you with balanced lighting to help when you are chopping, peeling, and performing other delicate food preparation. The skylight also means you won’t need that space on the wall for a window, so you can add more cabinets or a shelf for more storage space.
It might seem strange to have a skylight in the closet, but this is another room where natural light is beneficial but you don’t want to sacrifice your privacy to get it. Plus adding the skylight in the ceiling means that you have more space on the walls for shelving and clothes racks, expanding the useful space in your closet.
Converted Attics or Bonus Rooms
Finishing some space in your attic is a great way to add more square footage to your home without major additions, but it can be costly to add a dormer window where there is not one. A manually-operated skylight that is within reach can make a great natural window and provide the required escape route to meet fire and safety codes if you plan to use it as a bedroom.
Benefits of Skylights
Skylights in your home always add a little more “wow” factor, and come with several benefits, including:
- More natural light
- Better ventilation
- Energy cost savings in heating, cooling, and lighting
