Skylights And Roof Windows

If you have ever wondered what the difference is between sky lights and roof windows when it comes to reviewing natural lighting options- read on to learn more.


A skylight opens from the ceiling through the roof, hence allowing the flow of natural light from the outside to the inside. The opening can then be covered with transparent and translucent material allowing light of a natural kind to enter a room.

Roof Window

As you can imagine it really is a window in the roof giving you the advantage of increased ventilation as they can be either fixed or openable.

When you want to increase the natural amount of light in your home consider a skylight. If you want an increase in ventilation and natural light consider a roof window or an openable skylight. If you want all of that and to see a greater view of the outside world, then you will want an openable roof window!

A roof window is literally a window in the roof.  Allowing natural light, increased ventilation and the sight of clouds and stars in your room.

Roof windows can be openable or fixed and are designed to be a feature of the room.

So, if you are just wanting to increase the natural light in your home then consider a skylight.   If you’d like increased natural light and increased ventilation then consider an openable skylight or roof window.  If you’d like increased light and would like to see the outside inside then consider a roof window.  And if you’re after increased natural light, wanting to see the outside and increased ventilation then it’s an openable roof window for you.
