Homeowners will agree, property ownership doesn’t come without its risks. When it’s time for upgrades or renovations it’s necessary to weigh the potential costs against the value of proposed additions to determine if the change is worth it.
One of the biggest investments to add to your property is the installation of skylights. It’s important to consider the value they can add before you make your final decision. Let’s discuss it below!
How Can Skylights Add Value?
Installing skylights isn’t just about improving the aesthetics of your home, although the addition of more daylight into your space is brilliant. Adding high-quality, correctly installed, and precisely positioned skylights to your property can add value to your life and property in many ways.
1. Property Value
The type of skylight chosen allows homeowners the chance to upgrade the interior of their homes, whether it’s functional or aspirational design. Balancing the proposed skylights with your home’s architectural themes is a great way to add value to your home, whether that’s through the addition of daylight to brighten a typically dark room or hallway, or a stunning interior design feature.
Adding skylights adds a modern touch to any home and will provide current and future owners of the property with long term benefits. Some examples:
- Not only will it increase the selling value, but it will also improve the overall look and feel of a particular property.
- Dark and gloomy hallways suddenly appear lighter and considerably more open. Rooms that appear more spacious will automatically make your home more appealing to potential future buyers.
2. Value to Your Daily Living
One of the top reasons that we suggest the addition of skylights is the overall value that they add to your daily living. These benefits range from overall health improvements to potential money-saving advantages. We’ve listed two of the more prominent benefits to your daily living below.
Offer Natural Health Benefits
It’s no secret that with our busy lives we don’t always get adequate exposure to sunlight. Adding skylights is the best way to add natural light to your living environment. This exposure boosts vitamin D levels which ultimately carry several other health benefits.
General health benefits from introducing more natural light into your home include:
- Reducing heart disease
- Improves the general mood of everyone in the household
- Minimises the possibility of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression that affects people during the winter months
- Sufficient exposure to natural light improves sleeping patterns
- Increased ventilation in the home will reduce mould and mildew
By having a home with these features, the value of your property will be greater for anyone thinking of buying it in the future.
Skylights are Energy Efficient
In addition to having a positive effect on your daily health, having a Skylight installation will also reduce the need for energy-draining light bulbs. In the long run, this reduces the energy used on your property which in turn will show you a reduction in your energy bill.
