A pair of pendants provide accent lighting in this classic white kitchen, while a pair of sun tunnels offers natural light to make the kitchen a bright, inviting place to cook. Sun tunnels work equally well in interiors like walk-in closets, laundry rooms, bathrooms and entryways, too. Browse more photos of kitchen skylight solutions.
In this modern, streamlined bedroom, a wall of windows lets in views of the surrounding trees, while an overhead VELUX skylight fills the overall room with light. In a bedroom, opt for solar-powered room darkening VELUX blinds, which block out light. Duo blinds offer the functionality of both light diffusing shades and total blackout in one, when the roof window is within reach.
A dark, unlit second-floor hallway becomes the perfect spot for a gallery wall thanks to two VELUX sun tunnels. These reflective tubes provide a bright, diffused light, and are available as either rigid tunnels, which are easy to install in a few hours and don’t require structural changes, and flexible tunnels, which bend around obstacles like HVAC and plumbing.
Three VELUX skylights in this attic bedroom eliminate the need for a large floor lamp. These venting skylights can also open and close to improve air circulation, and have sensor that closes the window automatically when it rains. Using a remote control you can program the solar blinds to open so that you are waking up to natural light.
Installing a skylight at the top of this modern staircase fills both the second-floor hallway and main floor with light. The sleek opening works with the clean, minimalist lines of the space. Not sure which skylight is best for you? Find the right skylight solution for your space.
Skylights help transform rooms with small windows, such as attics, into functional, inviting places. In this kid’s room, a pair of skylights makes the homework corner more practical and keeps it cool and spring-fresh as the hot air can release through the skylight. Get more kids’ room ideas.
Opening up the flat roof above this second-floor nook and installing an energy-efficient VELUX skylight gives a previously unused space new potential. With flat roof skylight options available as large as 5′ x 5′, the light is ample! Its durable CurveTech glass cover offers sound insulation from rain and hail, and the design keeps heat loss at a minimum.
Skylights can deliver double the amount of daylight as vertical windows, so it’s no surprise that using three completely transforms this attic home office. Pairing the skylights with light-filtering blinds reduces glare while letting light in for an optimal workspace.
Whether you’re replacing an old skylight or adding a new one, VELUX has a no-leak promise for VELUX skylights installed by a certified member of the VELUX Installers Program. In this child’s bedroom, the large roof window in the vaulted pine ceiling helps illuminate the large space. See VELUX’s 2018 Lookbook to see more Before & After photos.
