When designing a kitchen extension there are plenty of things to consider, one of these being lighting. Flooding your kitchen extension with natural light is a great way to open up the space and there are many ways you can do this. One of your options is a glass roof for your kitchen extension. Architecturally, this is often considered to be the most aesthetically pleasing. Glass roofs are also known to add the ‘wow’ factor to your home but not only are they a stunning addition to your property; they also have many benefits that increase their value.
Optimal Natural Light
A glass roof provides the optimum amount of natural light to brighten the kitchen space. Often considered the heart of a home, the kitchen area can be a busy entertainment space where families convene and friends gather so it’s important it feels like an open space. Daylight is also scientifically proven to improve your wellbeing so letting as much natural light in as possible will always benefit your kitchen extension.
Glass is considered one of the most beneficial and progressive materials in the construction industry. With iconic glass structures found across London’s skyline, a glass roof truly is a timeless addition to your extension.
Installing a glass roof in your kitchen can be more energy efficient than you expected. With todays glazing technology, glass can be the greener option. As we know, good insulation prevents wasted energy and a glass roof keeps your extension cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
A glass roof extension is a durable, long lasting option and you will get years of enjoyment from your investment. It is also a design that will never go out of style so you don’t need to worry about regretting the style or design of your glass roof.
An Outdoor-Indoor Balance
Installing a glass roof extension is a great way of bringing the outdoors in without any mess. A glass roof allows beautiful views of the sky and be it sunshine or rain, the roof offers a great inclusion of the outdoors. Possibly the only downside of a glass roof can be the cleaning so it’s important to consider this during your design process to take into consideration the access needed to clean.
