Should you choose a roof lantern or a skylight?

Roof lanterns and skylights can both make fantastic additions to your home. Whilst structurally there are differences between the two, they both enable more light to enter the room they are installed in. This increase in natural sunlight can be really beneficial – as well as making the space brighter and airier it can also help to lift moods and increase Vitamin D intake.

In terms of design, there are differences between a skylight and roof lantern though. A skylight is a glass panel or window which is installed within the roof itself. It is part of the structure and sits flat within the roof (unless it is open). By contrast, a roof lantern protrudes from the roof itself – that is it sticks out from it. This means that the surface area of a roof lantern in generally greater due to having a greater number of dimensions. This means more natural light can enter the room it is installed in

Due to these differences roof lanterns and skylights are normally installed in different parts of a property. A skylight for example is commonly found in an attic or loft room. In comparison, roof lanterns are becoming a common feature in conservatories and extensions, where a flat roof it can protrude out of fits well with this design. Not only do they allow light to flood into these kind of spaces, they also suit contemporary building designs and can complement other glass features within them, meaning they are a popular choice for extensions.
