How to add natural light and architectural interest to your home extension
The unsettled weather this summer might persuade homeowners to carry out their postponed extension plans, to bring as much natural light in as possible. One of the best ways to achieve this is by installing a flat roof light, a glass structure that allows daylight to enter from all angles. A roof lantern will brighten up your room (and mood!), but also add architectural interest and value to a property, creating a focal point. Korniche, just launching its Flat Rooflight range at the London Homebuilding & Renovating Show, can provide comments on the main benefits of including such a feature into your extension plans as well as tips and tricks on how to install, maintain and clean it.
A Korniche roof lantern doesn’t just change the way your living space looks. By bathing your room in natural daylight, it transforms how it functions. How it feels. Just as every homeowner has a different vision, Korniche has a bespoke design to help you deliver it.
Meticulously engineered to be the strongest and stiffest on the market, our roof lantern supports industry-leading maximum glass sizes without the need for additional rafters.
The Korniche roof lantern’s simple design means it is capable of being fitted in minutes and glazed in seconds. It is the fastest and easiest kit to install on the market.
The roof lantern is fully thermally broken. Outside aluminium elements are connected to the internal ones through thermal breaks, vastly reducing heat transfer.
How flat roof lights can improve the energy efficiency
Flat roof lights, a feature that can add the wow architectural factor to your space, also have lesser know benefits. They can improve the energy efficiency of your home, as they reduce the need for artificial lighting and heating increasing the indoor comfort of the occupants. Korniche, just launching its Flat Rooflight range at the London Homebuilding & Renovating Show, can expand on why this solution is a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly option for your home extension. Although the exact amount of energy efficiency that a flat roof light can provide depends on several factors (such as the size, shape, orientation, glazing, and insulation of the roof light as well as the climate and the building design), some studies have estimated that the energy consumption for lighting can be reduced by up to 40 per cent, while the energy consumption for heating and cooling can be lowered by up to 10 per cent.
