By bluecorona May 6, 2015

Skylights are a beautiful feature to add to your CT home this summer. They let the light in during the day and they allow you to enjoy the view of the stars at night. Skylights have been known to instantly brighten the look and feel of any room they are installed in. This CT home improvement project is an enjoyable feature that you can add to any room in your home.

Before you consider investing in a skylight for your home, here are a few things you should know first.

Know the Pattern of the Sun

The sun will play a role in deciding the placement and positioning of your Velux skylight. Before you pick where you want your skylight to be, you must know the pattern of the sun. Knowing the suns patter will allow you to get the most out of your skylight.

This information will allow you to see when and where the sun will shine in your home. This is important because it will help you prevent the sun from ruining your furniture if you plan the placement of your skylight accordingly.

The placement of your skylight will depend on your personal preference. Whether you want the sun to heat your home or cast a soft glow of sunlight each day. If you hire a contractor they will be able to provide you with more information about skylight placement.

Make It Look Good

When installing a skylight you should consider how it will look on the inside and outside of your home. You have the ability to place your skylight where ever you choose. Just make sure the place you choose looks good.
