How To Choose the Right Rooflight for Your Home

Choosing the right rooflight will bring natural light flooding into your home but it’s important you chose the perfect solution to bring more light into your space.

A rooflight can bring 40% more light into your home than a natural window and to make sure you get it right first time, here’s some of the things we help you to consider.

The most important thing to consider is the amount of daylight you want to let into your home.  This will shape where you locate your rooflight.

Maybe you want to install a roof light in your kitchen, and you want plenty of light flooding through in the mornings. In which case you would be best installing east-facing rooflights where possible. Or maybe you want to improve the light in your living room later in the day, where a more west-facing installation might work better.

Wherever you want to improve natural light, the style of your property and interiors should always reflect the type of rooflight you choose.  If you want a more contemporary look, choosing larger rooflights might be best. If you live in a period property, then smaller sizes tend to be more in keeping with the building.

With the decision made on the location and style of your rooflight, next consider the best style for your property.

  • Fixed flat rooflights are a none opening, low maintenance option and are usually the most cost effective
  • Electronically controlled, rooflights are ideal when you can’t reach a rooflight and where you need to control it automatically.

Once you know you’ve chosen the perfect rooflight for your home, make sure it’s left to the professionals to install.  With a range of options available at Direct Rooflights and prices starting from as little as £63.25 for a polycarbonate model, you can rest assured that, we not only help you choose the model that best suits your property and requirements, most importantly that it’s fitted by expertly trained and highly qualified tradesmen.
