Roof lantern extension ideas

Posted on 28.10.2021

If you’re thinking about extending your home and are stuck for design ideas, why not consider implementing a roof lantern. They create extra natural light for your new space, as well as an architectural statement, so you can invite family and friends over to enjoy a light and open room all year round. Both aesthetically pleasing and practical, roof lanterns not only help to bring in light but they add new heights to your extension and can be designed to suit any home.

Bowalker roof lanterns are the perfect roofing solution for your extension if you’re looking to flood your home with natural light. The versatile glazing allows you to implement them into new or existing conservatories, orangeries or extensions. They’re available in a pitched roof design, which adds extra light and height into your property, giving the illusion of more space.

Choose from our two bar design, available up to 1500mm by 7450mm, or three bar design available up to 2750mm by 8700mm, so that you can tailor your new roof lantern to your project.

Whether you want to add an orangery to the back of your property, or would prefer a standard flat roof extension, roof lanterns work perfectly for both. Roof lanterns are the ideal choice for healthy, modern day living as they act as an effective source of daylight in your home. And with so much more time spent indoors for lounging and socialising, increasing the amount of daylight in your home is more important than ever, both for our health and to reduce our reliance on artificial lighting.

Pairing your roof lantern with bi-fold doors will offer you even more light and ventilation to freshen up the air in your extension and the rest of our home, creating an open plan space that is perfect for gatherings and seamlessly nipping in and out to your garden.

Maximise light and space

The clean sightlines of our roof lanterns eliminate the need for chunky frames, so the view and overall design of your property won’t be spoiled. Not only does your space feel lighter and more spacious, but it creates a comfortable area that keeps you at the perfect temperature all year round. This way, you stay cool in the summer and cosy in the winter. They provide your home with an element of grandeur from the inside-out, thanks to the unobstructed views of the sky above, whether that be the clouds peacefully floating along or stars glistening at night.
