Roof lanterns have become increasingly popular in modern home design. They’re a great addition to any space that needs more natural light and a unique design feature. In this blog, we’ll explore how roof lanterns work and their benefits.
How do roof lanterns work?
Roof lanterns are essentially a type of skylight. They are designed to bring more natural light into a space while also adding a unique architectural feature to the building. They consist of a structural frame that supports multiple glass panels or panes, or in some of the more modern designs the frame is low profile and contains just one pane of glass.
The panels are made from toughened or laminated glass to ensure that they are safe and durable. The frames we fit are made from aluminium making them light, durable, and able to be powder coated in many colours.
The benefits of roof lanterns
- Natural light
One of the primary benefits of roof lanterns is the natural light they bring into a space. Natural light, as we know has numerous benefits, including boosting mood and productivity, reducing energy bills, and improving overall well-being.

Roof lanterns are a unique design feature that can add character and style to any building. They are available in a range of styles, making it easy to find a roof lantern that complements the existing architecture of your home.
- Energy efficiency
Roof lanterns can also help to improve the energy efficiency of a building. The use of natural light reduces the need for artificial lighting.
- Increase property value
Roof lanterns are a unique and desirable feature that can add value to a property. They can increase the appeal of a home to potential buyers, making them a worthwhile investment.
