Find the right roof windows for your kitchen

3in1 for large and medium spaces

Our 3in1 roof windows are designed for maximum daylight and panoramic views. With three individual sashes set in a single frame, the 3in1 roof window will completely change your kitchen into a bright, inviting space. These are ideal for larger spaces like open-plan kitchen / dining rooms.

Single centre-pivot roof window for small spaces

Strategically placed single centre-pivot roof windows can make a big change to your small kitchen. A centre-pivot roof window is easy to operate even with furniture or kitchen appliances beneath. The control bar allows you to install the window lower than top-hung roof windows.

Top-hung roof windows are usually installed a bit higher but are easy to operate with the convenient handle at the bottom of the sash. The top-hung roof window opens outwards for an unobstructed view. Use our guide to find the perfect top-hung or centre-pivot roof windows that suit your needs.
