How to create a “wow” kitchen with natural light
How roof windows add the “wow” factor to a kitchen renovation
Roof windows add brightness
Adding more natural light is key to transforming a tired, dark kitchen into a modern, inviting space. Whether working with the existing footprint or extending, carefully placed roof windows can fill the kitchen with beautifully soft natural light for many hours a day, which is aesthetically pleasing and can save on energy bills too. Roof windows also help to free up walls for cabinet space where you’d normally put vertical windows; perfect if your kitchen is on the smaller side.
- Roof windows can add a "wow" factor to a kitchen renovation, opening up the space and making it feel brighter and more spacious.
- Dark kitchens, even ones with low-pitch roofs, can benefit from roof windows and the light they bring to a space.
- Our kitchen story shows how adding a roof window to a kitchen space immediately changes the look and feel of the room, making it more inviting and functional.
Roof windows in your kitchen: natural light can create a dramatic change
Adding roof windows can make a dramatic difference to a dull and dark kitchen, even if it has a low pitch roof. Strategically placed roof windows can help bring the daylight in just where you need it, from cooking areas to where the kids do their homework.
Roof windows add a design feature
Flip through any home magazine or watch a renovation show to see how frequently high ceilings are featured in a "wow" kitchen. This bold design choice completely transforms a space, adding sophistication, scale and crisp clean lines. Best of all it brings in more daylight with the addition of roof windows.
If your ceilings are not as high as you would like, you can still create a stunning kitchen by opening the roof up to daylight, just like Jessica and her family did.
Jessica and her family are completely smitten with their newly renovated kitchen with a certain “wow” factor: natural light. The renovation has made an enormous difference to their family life while giving them an abundance of natural daylight, making the kitchen everyone’s favourite spot! Due to local council height restrictions, they were worried that the ceilings were going to feel low and dark. ‘As soon as the VELUX roof windows went in, those worried melted away thanks to the enormous amount of light provided by them’, Jessica says.
