Natural light and ventilation are important considerations in home design for their contribution to a healthy and energy-efficient living space. Skylights are one way you can keep your home interiors well-lit and well-ventilated.

There are several benefits to introducing skylights into your home. A skylight can completely transform the look and feel of a room by creating a sense of increased space. The skylight introduces dispersed light, which enters the room at all angles and eliminates shadows, making the space appear bigger.

Skylights can be installed in almost any room in your home. The experienced Attic Group team recommends their favourite use of skylights in homes through five inspiring examples below.

Skylights in an attic storage room
