Is An Open Floor Plan Right For Me?

Open floor plans are a popular residential architectural trend, but does having one suit your tastes and preferences? Read on to discover the advantages and disadvantages of this design trend.

As the first day of summer approaches, days are becoming longer and evenings shorter. Why not let that beautiful natural sunlight into your home even more through a skylight? Skylights are popular in kitchens, bathrooms and other spaces on the interior of the house that may not get as much sunlight, like an attic or loft space. Check out these four benefits to adding a skylight in your home:

 

1. Energy Efficiency
More sunlight means decreasing the use of lights in your home which means lower energy bills!

 

2. Optimal Daylight
Any room with a natural source light feels brighter and more open. Home buyers are always searching out houses that feel light and airy as opposed to dark and closed off.

 

3. Add Life to Small Spaces
Light bulbs can light a space fine but why use the energy? Adding a skylight to a dark and small room, like an attic, will make your space feel larger than it is.

 

4. Privacy
The balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy can be an issue if your home is built close to another. That’s why 65 percent of homebuyers request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light are key.
