Wherever you choose to install your roof lantern, you can be sure that you will enjoy the amount of natural light that it will bring into the room below. Lighting up a previously dull corner of your home, making it feel light, bright and airy. Not only with the room directly under the roof lantern benefit from the natural light, but any nearby room will also get that extra bit of light, transforming your living space.

The most common uses for roof lanterns are adding them to a new or existing flat roof extension or into the ceiling space of a landing. If your extension is big enough, you can opt for 2 roof lanterns which can be installed side by side which make a stunning statement and bring in double the amount of natural light.

Why are roof lanterns a great way to add daylight into your room?

  • Roof lanterns suit both modern and traditional homes thanks to the simple sleek appearance that complements both styles, making them such a versatile product for any home improvement project.
  • They are a cost-effective way of completely transforming an existing room in your home. If you have a dark or dull flat roof extension or corridor in your home that could be made into a whole new space with the addition of light, then roof lanterns are a great way to achieve this. Instead of completely redoing that part of your home, installing a roof lantern will bring so much benefit for your home at a much smaller cost compared to a renovation project.
  • Even if you aren’t thinking about moving house just yet, roof lanterns increase the value of your home. This is because anything that boosts the amount of light in your home adds extra value as it contributes to any space feeling larger and more inviting.
