I adore the way a skylight can change the light and feeling in a room. It is an architectural element that I believe is hugely under-used. Here are some lovely rooms with skylights that I have collected.
- Wouldn’t it be lovely to have breakfast in this room all sunny and bright?
Having a glass ceiling would definitely go a long way to making this my dream kitchen.
This kitchen incorporates the same glass ceiling in a more rustic space. Beautiful!
Here a skylight is used to create a light and airy bathroom, but maintains complete privacy.
The skylight in this room offers some much needed sunlight. It would be very dark and dreary if the only light were from the small window.
This room combines the large floor to ceiling windows with a skylight. This would be a great application in a room where the you always have indirect sunlight and lush views.
A flat frosted glass ceiling could be used to add light where you don't necessarily have the greatest views or if privacy is an issue. This kitchen is simply lovely!
Yet another light filled kitchen, done extremely well!
Along with a skylight, this room utilizes Nanawalls, glass folding doors that fold completely away to make the change from outdoors to indoors nearly seamless.
In this commercial application, the skylight could actually be created using backlit glass or acrylic with lighting to simulate daylight behind. Very few offices have the roof access needed for skylights.
This room is simply gorgeous. I love the voluminous curtains, the deep shaggy rug and the thick beamed glass ceiling.
Do you have dreams of sleeping under the stars? Aren’t these windows a great way to feel like you live among the clouds?
