A skylight is a light-transmitting structure that forms all or part of the roof space of a building for day-lighting purposes. Skylights certainly look beautiful by themselves, but they share that beauty with other parts of your home as well. The light they invite in can bring out the natural beauty of everything it illuminates. It can make colors more vibrant or highlight certain architectural qualities of your room. Interior designers know that natural light enhances the positive qualities in your home’s design. Using skylights reduces your dependence on electricity. They are located on the roof, so they can result in unwanted summertime solar heat gain and wintertime heat loss. A skylight can provide your home with day-lighting and ventilation.
