Skylights Provide Dramatic Architecture
A well-placed skylight can not only let the light in where you need it to be, it can also pack that "wow" punch that will thrill your guests. Place your skylights where they will be useful, but also consider where they need to be in order to fit in with the decorative architecture of your home. Flat skylights on the ceiling are what most people expect, so why not surprise them with skylights that sit at an angle, above a dormer window? Or what about a dramatic skylight built into the wall, where you would normally hang a lovely painting? Skylights of yesteryear were simply meant to let the light in where you needed it most. Today's skylights come in any shape or size you desire, offer reflective properties that make the light even more intense, and can have dramatic framing that makes them a work of architectural art.
