The key to making the most of this essential resource is to understand exactly what we want from our homes. You may be looking to add a bit of flair to your surroundings. Or, on a more practical level, you might simply wish to make the most of your available living space. Especially if your family is outgrowing your home.
One thing’s for sure, there’s a lot you can achieve. From creating the dream bathroom to converting the loft into a master bedroom and en suite. Whatever you want from your property, there are a number of ways in which you can make light work for you, to open up space and add value. In this section we’ll show you how.
Adding natural light can have a positive impact on the apparent size of your home. As you can see from this playroom, even smaller rooms can appear larger if they have an ample supply of natural light. The extended views also help to create the impression of space.
Different rooms require a different approach to lighting. It all depends upon the mood you’re trying to create. The singular roof window (top right) has been carefully positioned to bring a feeling of calm and relaxation to the room. It doesn’t just compliment the design - It actually enhances it.
Letting light into your home is just the beginning. How you do this is the exciting part.
Light has the ability, if used correctly, to unveil the true value of our homes. By adding a VELUX Roof Window to a room you’ll see a noticeable difference in how often you use it. Think about larger areas of your home and you begin to see the possibilities.
Don’t move out. Move up.
As much as 30% of your homes available space is in the loft. So it’s no surprise that a loft conversion is one of the best ways to add flexible space to a house. Think about it. The foundations are already in place. So is the roof. Letting the light in will make it a more liveable space. Depending on the size of your loft, you could add an extra bedroom, children’s playroom, or even a master suite. A second bathroom can increase the value of your home by at least 5%.
A loft conversion can add between 6 and 15% to the value of your home, per bedroom. It can also save you time and money searching for a new property to accommodate your growing family. And you don’t lose any garden space to an extension either.
We want you to feel safe when using any of our products. That’s why our windows include a built-in security bolt, toughened glass and are tested under the most extreme weather conditions. But it doesn’t stop there. All VELUX windows come with a 10-year guarantee for extra peace of mind.
