The Best Places in Your Home to Add Skylights

Oakland Skylight Installation

Everyone loves skylights, because they can add a dramatic burst of brightness to any room – especially in the Bay Area. But where is the best place to put them? It’s important to consult with your local roofing contractor when considering skylight installation, but here are some popular choices:

  • Living rooms. An excellent option for skylights — extra light for entertaining can add brightness and value to a home’s featured room.
  • Kitchens. Having skylights in the kitchen offers plenty of light for cooking; and the passive ventilation offered by opening the skylights keeps kitchens clear and smoke-free.
  • Bedrooms. Bedrooms require absolute privacy, so a skylight can offer the benefits of a window without the threat of nosy neighbors. With a bedroom skylight, you feel like you’re camping under the stars in the comfort of your bed.
  • Bathrooms. Bathrooms can be claustrophobic without any natural light – but no one wants to risk being seen in the shower. A skylight can offer light, ventilation, and privacy where it’s needed most.
