What difference will a roof lantern make to my extension?

Posted on 22.05.2024

Are you dreaming of basking in the warmth of the sun from the comfort of your Sussex home? You need our roof lanterns! Summer is just around the corner and with it (hopefully!) brighter and warmer days. We’ve seen some game-changing home transformations thanks to the addition of Bowalker roof lanterns. Whether you’re planning a new extension or sprucing up an existing one, an extension with a lantern roof is your ticket to a brighter, more spacious home.

What is a roof lantern?

A roof lantern is like your home’s personal sunshine booster! It’s a stylish addition that sits on top of the roof and is formed from multiple glazed panels fitted at an angle. They are perfect for adding style and height to flat roofs, brightening up the dark corners and increasing the surface area that can bring in natural light.

Benefits of an extension with a lantern roof

Increased natural light

Welcome increased levels of natural light into your living space with a ceiling of glass. With impressive glazing, you can turn your roof into a source of natural light and maximise the living space it illuminates. Say goodbye to dark corners and hello to a brighter atmosphere!

Increased space

The pitched roof design of our lantern roofs isn’t just about style, it’s about creating an illusion of space. Adding height and bringing more light into your extension with a lantern roof can make your home feel larger and more inviting. Whether you’re enjoying a lazy Sunday brunch or hosting a lively party with family and friends, our roof lanterns set the perfect scene.

Low maintenance

Maintaining a roof lantern is relatively straightforward and requires minimal effort compared to other home improvement features. Our roof lanterns come with self-cleaning glass, which has a special coating that uses the sun’s UV rays to break down dirt and debris, making it easier for rainwater to wash away the residues. The self-cleaning glass reduces the need for frequent manual cleaning, making our roof lantern a perfect addition to your extension.

Design versatility

At Bowalker Doors, we understand that each extension is unique, which is why we offer our roof lanterns in a range of styles and sizes to suit your needs. With slim frames, a choice of 10 styles, a variety of colours, and the option to add an LED light channel, you’re sure to find the perfect fit for your home.

Energy efficiency

Don’t worry about sacrificing energy efficiency for the sake of sunlight. Our roof lanterns are designed with comfort and sustainability in mind. These roof lanterns are highly thermally efficient, offering excellent insulation to keep your home cool in summer and cosy in winter. The warmth from the sunlight flooding into your room is just an added bonus.
