With so many of us working from home, the need for natural light exposure has never been greater. Thankfully, we are coming out the other side of this long winter. The days are slowly but surely starting to get a little bit longer.

The lack of sunlight in our lives certainly takes its toll on our mental well-being. You may have noticed feeling more lethargic than you remember in previous years. Perhaps you have just felt low in general, and your concentration seems to have dwindled. This is a direct effect of lack of sunlight. The dark sees us enter a state of hibernation that can be a struggle to pull ourselves out of. This is because we are not prepared for working like this, for many, it’s been a shock to the system.

Since the pandemic, we have seen an increase in people from Bournemouth, Poole, and Christchurch enquiring about the benefit of VELUX installation. And we can’t rave about them enough!

Light exposure will see your mental wellbeing improve tenfold. Giving you more energy and drive to complete your daily tasks. If this isn’t enough to get you thinking about it, there are more vital benefits that might just persuade you.

Velux skylights hugely increase the value of your home. And we’re not just talking about the physical price of the building but in every aspect of living. They are a small but mighty way of transforming your house into a brighter and bigger space.

So, whether you’re thinking of ways to embrace the sun as we transition into spring. Or renovating to increase the value of your property in 2021. VELUX windows have got you covered.

Count the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves!

Many homes these days are taking advantage of the multiple benefits VELUX skylights add to their homes. More and more homeowners are also looking to buy new homes with VELUX windows already installed. This is because of the limitless value they add to your property.

Installing a VELUX skylight is a fantastic way to get your home sold. This is because when people see a skylight, they immediately think of energy efficiency. People prefer homes with VELUX skylights because of the money-saving benefits that coincide with the visual effect. With extra light beaming into your home, there will be less of a need to use artificial lighting. You will immediately see a reduction in electric bills because lightbulb use is lowered. Benefiting your mind, your wallet, and most importantly the planet.

They are unbelievably energy-efficient for their temperature controlling qualities too. Proper placement of your VELUX window will ensure the warmth inside your home is kept to a comfortable level. Therefore, this reduces the need for heating during these colder months.

This is because the seal and glazing options prevent air leaks. Unlike old windows, you can be sure your VELUX installation will trap the warmth in. Ensuring your home is kept cosy on cold nights. So, there will be less need to blast the heating, as the VELUX skylight will guarantee you are well insulated.

Should your rooms get a little too hot, the VELUX window design allows you to open them. This will create a flowing breeze through your home. (Weather permitting) they will flush your space with clean air making it fresh and welcoming for your family.

Natural light creates the illusion of space

Adding a VELUX skylight to your home will also open your space. It will make a room look twice the size by flooding it with natural light.

As modern homes erect throughout Dorset, we are seeing a trend in VELUX skylight installations. This is because the natural light provides a positive, uplifting injection of energy into space. People instantly feel like they can breathe because the light evokes a sensation of openness. They are far more likely to purchase a home that has an open feel, rather than dark and gloomy.

When we view a property one of the first things we ask is which way is the garden facing. We aim for the most amount of light possible. So, imagine being able to bring this inside the house. A warm, bright happy home leads to a relaxed prosperous life. So even if you can’t get to the beautiful sandy Bournemouth beaches, you can still enjoy the warmth of the sun’s glow.

VELUX skylights give your home the wow factor

The visual aspect of installing a VELUX skylight into your home is one of its biggest selling points. VELUX installations can turn what was once a dreary, cold, dark space into a vibrant central attraction. They are a unique feature that is exclusive and provides a luxury facet to any room. This can then be elevated with your personal touches to transform it into a space you can be proud of.


By making your skylight a feature, you can change the entire atmosphere of any room. This will promote a more positive and uplifting feel whenever you invite guests over. You can emphasise this by placing beautiful objects such as plants or flowers in the direct flow of light. This will draw in positive energy and create a sanctuary within any room. So you can relax and entertain in a beautiful setting that you have the luxury of calling your home.

Here are 5 rooms you could install a VELUX skylight that will transform the space and improve property value

The Kitchen

Often we think of the kitchen as the heart of the home. It’s therefore a fantastic place to install a VELUX skylight. It creates a key feature in such an important room in the home. You can guarantee it will be the talking point of any house viewing and no doubt what seals the deal.


A skylight is a great way to bring natural light into the room whilst ensuring maximum privacy. So you can create a spar like feel without having to block out the beautiful light with blinds. It’s also a great way to naturally ventilate the room so there is no need for extractor fans. Another great way to save electricity and keep those pesky bills to a minimum.

Master Bedroom

Who doesn’t want to enter a master bedroom with a wow factor? A VELUX window will guarantee just that! Not only will it flood your room with natural light throughout the day, you’ll spend your nights stargazing. The perfect romantic setting, whilst still ensuring maximum privacy.

Living Room

Installing a VELUX skylight into your living room will allow you to control the light exposure. This will help to avoid glare when relaxing in front of the TV after a long week’s work. It also provides lots of bright light, so you can still feel the benefits of nature, even on rainy days. The VELUX skylight will bring tranquillity to your family areas, creating a calm and positive atmosphere in the home.

Loft Conversions

Velux skylights are an incredibly practical way to bring tones of light into loft conversions. Low ceilings can often make these conversions feel small and claustrophobic. By installing a VELUX window, you will make the room feel open and larger. Maximising the space and making the previously dark room feel bright and airy.

VELUX installations are an all-around great way to add value to your property. These do not just include monetary value, but the benefit of creating a healthy home. More light exposure will make for a more positive living space.

Whether you’re thinking of renovating to sell or to make improvements to your forever home. The VELUX window installation will prove to be the investment that keeps on giving.

2 Velux Sun Tunnels

Thank you for the windows installation organisation. The windows are really smart and we now usually press the correct open/close switches for the different items. Kevin was very organised with the work, neat, clean and tidy throughout all. Our house is small and the access was a bit tight for them to work. He explained how to operate everything. We were also blessed with dry, all be it very cold weather, for the two installation days.

Over the last couple of years I have replaced 4 unsuitable roof windows (which wouldn’t pass planning nowadays) with VELUX windows and each time asked Kevin to carry out the works. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to undertake similar home improvements.
