There are so many reasons to invest in skylights, from the architectural intrigue they present to all that natural light they allow to pour into your space from above. And the good news is, there are tons of different options for varying budgets, lifestyle needs, and aesthetic preferences. Some of them are comparable to adding a window to your roof—like ventilating skylights, which open and closed and fixed skylights, which provide the same lighting benefits but don’t open and close like a window,—while others, like tilt window skylights, are great for sloped rooflines. There are also ultra-modern tech-optimized ones like this one. So get to know all the different types of skylights ahead as well as the best ways to use them and how to decorate around them. Then weigh the options and determine which ones make sense practically and style-wise in your own space. Here’s to brighter, chicer interiors from top to bottom.
