Innovative Skylight Designs for Modern Homes


Skylights are available in a wide variety of sizes and styles these days which allows homeowners a great degree of creative latitude when planning the look of their space. Today's skylights will work seamlessly with numerous architectural styles ranging from 50s-style minimalist modern to 2020's postmodern, so if you are hoping the skylights you plan to install will enhance rather than hinder the overall look of your home, you're in luck. Let's look at some innovative skylight designs for modern homes.

3 Innovative Skylight Designs for Modern Homes

Below are 3 innovative ways skylights can be integrated into a modern home.

Turning your loft into a beautiful, useable space

Due to inflation and high interest rates more and more homeowners are putting off buying a new home and instead trying to glean as much enjoyment and value as possible from their existing home. One of the best ways to do that is to convert their formerly forgotten loft into beautiful, usable space. A thoughtful placement of the skylights that takes internal and external factors into consideration as well as the myriad style options available will result in a loft space that can serve a multitude of purposes.

Using skylights to improve bathroom or kitchen ventilation

In the kitchen or bath, the benefits of skylights extend beyond the purely aesthetic. Strategic placement of a skylight or skylights in the bathroom can greatly improve ventilation, helping to prevent long-term damage from a persistently moist environment. In the kitchen, skylights can be used to vent heat, fumes and odours from the hob or oven preventing the kitchen from becoming too hot and preventing odours from permeating curtains and other porous surfaces.

A window to the stars

Placing a skylight directly over the bed can turn your average bedroom into a window on the heavens. By installing a motorized blind over the skylight that can be opened or closed you can prevent morning sunlight from becoming a problem and also prevent prying eyes from nearby tall buildings from intruding on your serenity.
