Summertime is many Australian's favourite season as it means more holidays and a better climate to enjoy the outdoors. However, you can't always be out and about, and most of your time this summer will most likely still be spent at home, so why not make it a place that you want to be in and not just somewhere to sleep? One way to better incorporate summer this year (and beyond) is through the installation of skylight windows. There truly is no other feature quite like skylight windows, and here are a few reasons they could be the missing piece to your puzzle this summer.
Nothing Beats Natural Light
While some artificial lights try to replicate the distinctive feeling and beauty that natural light provides, there is no substitute for the real thing. Skylight windows main attraction is, of course, the ability to enjoy real sunshine while still being protected from the elements. You can gaze up at the clouds from your couch or enjoy the look of passing birds as you wait on something in the kitchen. It is also very practical, and can help lower your overall power bill, but mainly the attraction with skylight windows has to be its sheer natural beauty.
Let The Fresh Air In
The higher up you are the fresher the air is, and so by adding in skylight windows that can open and close (with the use of a special remote), you can enjoy a cool blast even at the height of summer. This fresh air, in conjunction with other, normal windows being kept open, can provide a beautiful draught that makes your house feel like a villa by the sea. When you are done, or if some rain starts to arrive, simply close the skylight window and you have a fully sealed roof again.
Feel Less Stuffy While Working
For those who do work at home during the long summer days, it is easy to feel cooped up. You may not have much natural light in your office or living room, and you almost certainly won't have any natural air coming through, you probably just have the air conditioner filtering in the same oxygen over and over again. Having skylight windows gives you a direct connection to the outside world even while working. You can hear the birds chirping, feel the wind rush in and hear the trees rustle in the wind. That connection, when it is out of the way far above your head, is a great way to feel better and less stressed even while working.
