We love seeing the reaction customers get when they see their kitchen instantly transformed with skylights. People tend to gather here; whether it’s to eat and prepare food or simply to relax and unwind. Kitchens are places for friends, families, couples and simply to be alone. It’s important to ensure you create the kitchen you really want, and it might just be easier than you think.
Skylights are a popular option in kitchens – they can instantly change the feel of your kitchen area with their versatility and functionality.
Let There Be Light
Many kitchen areas can feel cramped or dark, especially if the home or apartment is relatively small. However, with a skylight, the space will naturally be filled with light creating the illusion of far more space and enhanced brightness.
Quality suppliers such as Velux always ensure that skylights are easy to clean and that light can stream in throughout the year. You’ll notice a real difference – not only to the kitchen space, but to your mood and your health too.
As well as the light streaming in, you’ll find that skylights give you a glimpse of natural elements you’d never before appreciated. You’ll likely notice a real difference in mood when you can look up from your kitchen and see clouds, blue sky, stars or spots of rain. This opening up of space gives a real sense of calmness to kitchen areas and helps to create an indoor-outdoor feel.
Keep Things Fresh
Whether you’re frying bacon or chopping garlic, the kitchen is often filled with smells – many of which you may not necessarily want to linger for too long. Skylights can prove a great improvement to kitchen areas as they allow you to rid the space of bad smells by simply opening and closing the skylight.
There are a number of different options when it comes to openable skylights and if yours is placed high up, don’t panic as you can get a remote control to open and close.
Trusted suppliers such as Velux have been perfecting skylights for years and they know exactly which ones work with which spaces. You’ll be able to find a design option that works for you and your home within no time and you’ll love the new look it brings to your kitchen.
We recently added one VELUX skylight to a residential kitchen and we are thrilled with the transformation of her kitchen.
