the skylight file.

Monday 12 December 2011

As I look back at my Pinterest pins, it's quite clear I have a thing for skylights. I should really have a separate skylight file by now. I'm repeatedly excited by how the tiniest sliver of light can exaggerate the volume of a space.

  1. Hi,

    Glad to see your post..I really enjoyed to see these pictures. It is really informative and useful at the same time.

    Skylights come in many styles and designs. They can be rectangular, oval, triangular, or any odd shape and are perhaps the most beautiful way to enjoy the rain as you see it fall over your head.

    Windows cannot recreate the drama and magic that skylights can add to your house. These are like God's own television screens! Moreover, skylights will usually bring in more light than windows and are a great alternative to artificial lighting.

    Skylights on north-facing roofs provide cool illumination, while east-facing roofs provide maximum light and heat in the morning. West-facing skylights provide afternoon sunlight and heat. South-facing skylights provide more passive solar heat than any other location.

    Thanks for being sharing..
    Keep doing!!
