There are actually a lot of ideas to make your home interior looks way more interesting. One of them is by installing skylights on the upper part of your house. Skylight is one solution for a building which does not have adequate openings on its walls. This is to enhance the natural lighting inside your house. Compared to skylights in skyscrapers, house skylights do look different.
In a house, the skylights are generally installed in the middle of the building. The design is made extending from the front to the back. Then at the bottom of the skylights, there is a void area that generally divides the room into two sides, the right and left side. In the daytime, the skylights will be the center of attention since the exposure to sunlight is quiet strong here. The sunlight which enters the room through the skylights will look so bright. Thus, the rooms beneath, including the void areas, will not require any artificial lighting during the daytime.
Unlike the areas under the skylights, the ones located on the right side or left side of the skylight will not get direct sunlight. Nevertheless, they remain to be bright though not as bright as in the areas just below the skylights. Interestingly, there will be interesting silhouettes in your house, which are the silhouettes of the objects in the room under the skylights. These unique silhouettes will be visible on the afternoon before dark. In the evening you can still see the silhouette of the skylight frames which are very interesting, especially when the moon is shining bright. You can see the beauty of the moon from under the skylights.
In addition, skylights are usually found in the attic room. Due to the limited space for windows, an opening is usually made on the room in the form of skylights. Not only illuminating the attic room, the skylights also serve to beautify it.
All in all, installing skylights at your house will be a very interesting idea and worth a try. You do not have to install it in the middle of your room. Instead, you can place it anywhere when it is necessary, by considering the aesthetics and function.
The following are some ideas for a house with skylights:
