Get a modern skylight design

Daylight adds drama, transforms spaces, interacts with furniture and your wall colours, and helps you to bring the outside in. The more roof windows you add, the better! Adding multiple roof windows - especially if they're in a row - will boost your space like nothing else. But different spaces need different types of daylight. Read on to learn how you can improve the spaces in your home with daylight.

Renew your bedroom with a roof window

Connect your bedroom with nature and wake up with beautiful light pouring down through your roof window! Sounds harmonious, doesn't it? We think so too. The fact is: daylight is good for your sleep. 

Sunlight helps set the body's circadian rhythm (sleep/wake cycle) and allows the brain to learn when it's time for us to fall asleep and wake up. With roof windows, you can transform your bedroom into a beautiful, bright space where you'll love starting and ending your day.

Get more daylight in your living room

Natural light makes your space appear larger. It brightens up every corner of your living room and is perfect for opening up the space. You can create a focal point in your living room with daylight from above. Play with different light dimensions, make the room appear larger, and design the space based on the direction the room is facing.

Improve air and ventilation in your rooms

Frequent ventilation is vital to ensure a healthy indoor environment and air quality. When you cook, shower, sleep, or even have guests over, the humidity in your home rises. If you don't remember to ventilate, this can ultimately lead to issues with condensation and mould.

With VELUX, ventilation has never been easier. When indoors, your roof windows can help promote a healthier home. By pairing your VELUX solar-powered or electric roof windows with VELUX App Control, you can easily control the air quality in your rooms. The app gives you full control of your roof windows, blinds, and shutters right from your smartphone.

Get better lighting and ventilation in the kitchen

If you spend a lot of time in your kitchen, you'll want to make sure you have the best possible lighting to work in. The best solution is to have direct daylight where you work in your kitchen. Kitchen counters near a window often offer the best work lighting. But if you have a kitchen island, work lighting can be limited. One way to solve the issue is with a roof window, which also works wonders for kitchen ventilation.

The kitchen is where we cook and bake. And even though it fills the room with lovely smells, it's a good idea to eliminate fumes and odours to maintain a healthy indoor environment. VELUX solar-powered and electric roof windows ensure plenty of daylight on your working station and are perfect for airing your kitchen to quickly remove smoke and cooking odours. 

Decrease humidity in the bathroom

The modern-day bathroom has become a place for relaxation, mindfulness, and escape. Daylight is the key ingredient in creating an ultimate relaxation space emphasising the at-home wellness experience. With roof windows, you can turn your bathroom into your own private spa with natural light from above and plenty of fresh air. 

Roof windows will also help you deal with humidity. When taking showers, the bathroom becomes damp and humid, which makes fresh air and proper ventilation essential. The climate in the bathroom suffers when poorly ventilated. A large bathroom window you can open after a shower will create air circulation for a better indoor environment.
