Often when we think about adding some extra space, we tend to think about adding an extension, converting a garage or installing a conservatory to the back of the house. But maybe your budget doesn’t stretch that far and you need to find an alternative way to create that new space, that also saves you pennies.
Many of us, have areas in our home that with a bit of work, can come to life and feel like a completely new part of our home. One of the most cost-effective ways to do this is to transform a flat roof with a skylight or roof lantern.
If you have a room with a flat roof or even a garage, you may want to add extra light into it to help the room feel bigger and breathe new life into it. Skylights and roof lanterns are the best way to do this. They add extra height and plenty of new light into rooms that have a flat roof. With the extra light, you suddenly have a room which feels a lot more inviting and you’ll get more use from it.
At Trade Windows, we fit the Skypod Skylight in Derby. It is built with the latest technology from Eurocell and is one of the best skylights on the market because it has lots of design options. It looks great and it brings lots of light into your home, brightening it up and making any space feel so much bigger. It’s cost effective too making it a fantastic long-term investment for your home.
If you need more space in your home, then why not transform a flat roof extension with a Skypod from Trade Windows? Here are some of the reasons why a Skypod should be your next home improvement.
And then there was light
Skypods bring so much light into the home, especially if you decide to go for a really big Skypod. There are two design styles to choose from when it comes to Skypod. There is a two-bar design and a three-bar design.
If your extension is quite big or you need to transform a large flat roof area, a three-bar Skypod is the best choice for you as it has lots of glass and sizes go up to 2.75m x 8.7m. They’re impressive and open up any room to the sun in the day and the stars at night.
Get The Look You Want
If you’ve colour matched your windows and doors across your property, or there’s a particular colour you really like, the number of frame colour options on Trade Windows Skypods gives you the opportunity to get the look you want.
On the outside of the frame, Skypod comes in any RAL colour, so there are hundreds of colours to choose from with lots of shades of grey, green, red, blue and yellow. Greys are really popular at the moment across all types of glazing. Anthracite Grey is one of the top picks if you’re looking for the latest trends.
It’s not just the frame that provides an array of colour options, you can choose from different glass colours on your Skypod from Trade Windows too. Glass colour options give you the opportunity to create fantastic contrasting effects between your frame and your glass. As well as clear glass, you can get blue, neutral, bronze and aqua.
We also do solar controlled glass on our Skypods which helps to keep the temperature just how you want it. Not too hot in the summer and not too cold in the summer. To find out more about how our solar control glass works, find out more on our Pilkington Activ™ glass blog.
