Can I put a rooflight in my kitchen?

Yes, of course, you can put a rooflight in your kitchen! 

Natural light can completely transform your kitchen by illuminating important surfaces and zoning areas (like your kitchen island!). 

To find the perfect location for your kitchen rooflights, you’ll have to consider factors such as the direction of the sunlight, your views and any potential obstructions. You’ll also need to settle on a budget for your installation.

Do you want a smaller, square rooflight or a large, rectangular one? Which you choose will depend on how much money you’re willing to spend, the layout of your kitchen and how much space you have. 

Once you’ve settled on a space, size and budget, it’s time to get inspired!

Brighten up a dark area

There’s nothing more disheartening than a dull, dimly lit kitchen. So why not use a rooflight to brighten up the area?

Rather than chopping your vegetables in the dark, rooflights allow you to stay in the sun for longer. This architectural depth will not only make your kitchen look good, but it’ll make the space feel larger.

In the image above, a rooflight has been incorporated over the cooking zone (to give the household chefs more visibility!) Light will flood across the countertops, reducing the need for artificial lighting.

Combine with other kinds of light and glazing

You might already have back-door or conservatory glazing in your kitchen: don’t let this stop you from investing in a rooflight!

Your doors and windows are already bringing in light from multiple angles, so why not add another from above? Infiltrate your kitchen with the sun’s rays at multiple points in the day and make the most of the scorching summer weather. 

Above, a large rooflight has been added close to a set of conservatory doors, giving you a view of the garden and trees from above.

Choose a smaller, budget-friendly rooflight

Kitchen renovations don’t have to break the bank. Adding a small rooflight to your home will have a big architectural impact.

Small, square rooflights offer more design flexibility when it comes to placement. For example, as in the image above, they can fit into tighter spaces and complement the design of your kitchen without any major modifications. 

 Not to mention, they’re an affordable way to make home improvements on a budget. They require less material and labour for installation, making them a cost-effective choice for homeowners looking to save money.
