Things to consider when adding a roof light

Rooflights offer amazing natural light to enhance any extension or brighten up your living space, but first, a host of questions need answering. 

Are you building a new extension or adding to an existing extension? Are you looking for fixed roof lights or ones that open with a remote control? Is your roof flat or pitched? Is your design classical or minimalist? You’ll also need to consider whether you need planning permission. 

The bigger the roof light, the lighter it will let in, so you might first think as big as possible, but you’ll also want to think about adjacent elements and the interior design of your room. It may be you want the roof light to align with a dining table or worktop in a kitchen or even the bathtub in a bathroom. You’ll then need to consider the best style and features.
