Hi, Charlie Luxton here. I’m an architectural designer and I want to show you the incredible difference daylight makes to your extension.

Making daylight work for you

Large doors look great and they bring the outside in to your extension. Adding VELUX roof windows complements them perfectly and helps you realise your new room’s full daylight potential.

The darker room problem

"When you extend out, the light source for the original part of your house is suddenly further away. So that existing space will feel darker than it used to, even on a bright day. And you’ll probably have to rely on artificial rather than natural light here."

Planning an extension project?

"Now's the time to think about things like the direction your extension will face, the best size and right number of roof windows you’ll need, and where to position them. Because all these things affect how much daylight you’ll be able to enjoy."

A more comfortable indoor climate

"Fresh air is another big consideration, especially for a kitchen or dining extension. Roof windows are great for areas like this because you don’t always want to fling your doors open to the Great British elements! They help steam, heat and cooking smells to quickly escape which creates a nicer space for everyone to get together in."

In control of your environment

Our innovative VELUX INTEGRA® automatic roof windows let you operate your roof windows at the touch of a button – and you can also programme them to open and close at any time of the day.

Smart rain sensors

VELUX INTEGRA® automatic roof windows have clever external sensors, which make them automatically close when it starts raining. So there’s no need to panic when you’re out, or for you to rush home!

More white means more light

Our white roof windows reflect more light back into the room than darker finishes. They’re available in white-painted and moisture-resistant white polyurethane finishes – both produced from high quality certified wood.

Planning a kitchen extension?

Then proper, effective ventilation is even more important. And VELUX white polyurethane roof windows are perfect for humid rooms like kitchens, with a high quality wooden core that’s fully encased in moisture-resistant white polyurethane.

VELUX blinds for every need

Our range of blinds allows you to control the amount of light, heat and privacy in your extension. From black-out blinds that turn a sun room into a cinema room, to exterior awning blinds which block the heat from the sun’s rays before it hits the glass.

The darker room solution

"VELUX roof windows can bring in twice as much daylight as vertical windows of the same size. Which means the whole living space is much brighter. And all that light from above now penetrates much deeper into the house, so the existing part of your home will feel much lighter too."

Best use of wall space

"Having roof windows means the daylight you need comes in through the roof, so you’ve got more wall space to play with. If you’re planning a kitchen, for example, that could mean more space for some much needed extra cabinets!"

VELUX roof windows can bring twice as much daylight to extensions as vertical roof windows. They also bring more light into the existing part of your home, which otherwise could feel darker. And they help you create a space that brings everyone together.
