As our good friend Charlie Luxton says, ‘Daylight to buildings is like ketchup to sausage sandwiches!’
The increasing cost of moving due to stamp duty and mortgages, combined with the unrelenting hassle of dealing with utility and broadband companies, means more of us are realising that extending is the best solution to our housing conundrums. The lure of a new light-filled kitchen, a dedicated utility that allows for elegant mess-free living, or an extra bedroom to ease family discord! They can be and often are, just what the doctor ordered.
Bifold and patio doors look fantastic in an extension, and they’re a great way of bringing the outside in. They’re perfectly complemented by VELUX® roof windows, which can provide twice the amount of daylight than vertical windows and doors, and create a much brighter, lighter extension.
VELUX roof windows maximise the way light moves throughout the day, and also allow more natural daylight to penetrate deeper into the existing part of your home.
With all that extra daylight coming in through your roof, you’ll have more wall space to use – perfect for extra cupboards or units if you are planning or already have a kitchen extension. And with VELUX INTEGRA® automatic roof windows, you can add the new VELUX ACTIVE system to the mix. Designed so it is as easy as 123 for end users to install themselves.
Together with bifold doors, VELUX roof windows make your extra space feel extra bright, extra spacious and extra inspiring.
