Why Skylights are a Win Win

Do you love the warmth and vibrancy of natural sunlight? Are you a homeowner who wants to welcome more light into your living space? If so, skylights could be the perfect solution for you.

These architectural features are more than windows to the sky, so let’s explore why skylights are a win-win solution.

Energy Efficiency and Savings

All indoor spaces require lighting to be functional and inviting. Skylights offer a sustainable solution by offsetting the need for artificial lighting during the daytime since natural sunlight shines through.

It’s important to note that the amount of wattage homeowners can conserve by installing skylights varies. Factors including skylight size, placement, and weather conditions all come into play.

On cloudy days, the natural diffused light provided by skylights often offers ample illumination, ensuring that spaces remain bright without artificial lights.

Health and Well-being

Natural light offers numerous health benefits, including boosting vitamin D levels, improving mood, and improving sleep quality by regulating circadian rhythms.
Skylights can transform a poorly lit space into a brighter and healthier environment, promoting well-being for you and your family.

Aesthetic Appeal

Skylights provide a unique architectural element to homes, potentially boosting curb appeal and home value. Whether you wish to add natural light to one room or are interested in sustainable lighting for multiple areas of your home, skylights are worth considering.


Some skylights can open, providing light and fresh air. This added feature can improve ventilation, help reduce indoor pollutants, and control moisture levels for a healthier living environment.

Connection with the Outdoors

Skylights are a window to the sky. Adding them to your home creates a sense of openness and connection with nature. During the day, your space gets bathed in natural sunlight, and you can gaze at the stars in the evening.

For proud “plant parents,” skylights can ensure their favorite flowers and fauna get plenty of natural light to grow and thrive.

Ideal and Less Ideal Rooms for Skylights

When considering the addition of skylights to your home, some rooms are better choices than others for open skylights.

Best Suited Rooms for Open Skylights:

Kitchen: Skylights in the kitchen can transform the space, making it brighter and more inviting. They provide excellent natural light for cooking and dining areas, enhancing the ambiance and reducing the need for daytime lighting.

Home Office: Natural light can boost productivity and improve mood, making a skylight in your home office a wise choice. It can reduce eye strain from artificial lighting and create a brighter, more efficient work environment.

Bathroom: Skylights in bathrooms are perfect for privacy and natural light. Added light can make the space feel more extensive and more open. If vented and operable, they can provide extra ventilation.

Sunroom: Naturally, sunrooms benefit significantly from additional natural light. Skylights can enhance the room’s purpose as a space for relaxation and enjoying the sun, providing more angles for sunlight to brighten the room throughout the day.

Less Suited Rooms for Skylights:

Bedrooms: While natural light is generally beneficial, in bedrooms, open skylights can sometimes disrupt sleep patterns, especially if not equipped with shades or installed where there is direct and bright morning light.

Media/Theater Rooms: These rooms require controlled lighting for optimal viewing of screens and displays. Skylights might introduce glare and make achieving the dark environment needed for movies or presentations difficult.

Incorporating skylights into your home requires thoughtful consideration of each room’s function and your lifestyle needs.

By choosing suitable spaces or the best configuration, skylights can significantly enhance your home’s appeal and energy efficiency while addressing specific needs like privacy, ventilation, and natural light.
