Embarking on an extension journey? Congratulations! It’s an exciting endeavor filled with possibilities, especially when it comes to brightening up your space with a flat roof skylight.

Planning Your Extension

Start by envisioning your dream space. Consider:

Room Functionality: Will it be a bustling kitchen or a cozy living area? Different functions may require varying sizes of roof lights.

Views: What does your room overlook? Large glass doors? This can impact the size of your skylight.

Lighting Sources: Where will the other sources of light be? If relying heavily on natural light, you might opt for larger or multiple skylights.

Also, don’t forget your roof type! Whether flat or pitched, our HITECH rooflights are compatible with angles up to 45 degrees, offering versatility for any design.

Choosing Your Skylight Size

Consult with your builder or architect—they’re like your room’s fairy godparents! They’ll guide you based on room size and lighting needs. Consider factors like sunlight direction, room temperature, and media placement (nobody wants glare on their TV!).

Marking up the skylight size on your floor can give you a visual aid to envision how it’ll impact your space.
