Using blue as a neutral color
If you’ve been reading about neutral palette décor, don’t limit yourself to white or gray. The blogger behind Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body shows how blue can be a neutral onto which to layer pattern and texture. She partnered with VELUX to add three skylights to her master bedroom suite, which not only significantly brightens the space, but also complements her décor by adding a sky view above.
Sierra Remodeling can lighten almost any room in your home whether it is a large walk-in closet, a dark bathroom, a large living room in need of central light or your kitchen in need of freeing up some wall space for additional cabinets.
VELUX Skylights Brighten Kitchen
When Brendan and Nicole McGlinch decided to build their forever home, they knew they wanted it filled with natural light. Their open plan design connects the kitchen with the family room and a row of four VELUX No Leak Electric “Fresh Air” Skylights extend across the roof ridge, resulting in natural light throughout the kitchen. Watch to see how their daylighting plan truly makes the kitchen the heart of their home. Explore more skylight design ideas at whyskylights.com and visit the Sierra Remodeling showroom.
Using Skylights for a Four-Season Porch
Architect Sarah Armstrong loves the art and craft of architecture. When a client asked her to create a four-season, screened-in porch that would look like it was part of the original house, she got to work taking a cue from the home’s craftsman style for details in the porch. She used three VELUX fixed skylights to bring light into the porch itself, as well as to the living room and kitchen. The skylights also provide a sky view from a hammock hanging in the porch and are framed into the tongue-and-groove ceiling in such a way that the focus is the sky instead of the skylight frame.
Natural Light from Skylights Brings Ann Arbor Kitchen to Life
Architect Dawn Zuber of Studio Z Architecture talks about how she used skylights to transform a small, dark kitchen of a Colonial-style home in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The original kitchen had only one window, making it hard for the homeowner – a food columnist – to photograph her culinary creations. Zuber expanded the space, added VELUX skylights for soft, natural light throughout the day and connected the kitchen with a new family room that was added onto the back of the house.

Architect: Skylight crucial to light, airy modern farmhouse
Architect Dominique Lobjois of De Bilt Homes uses VELUX skylights to create air flow in the homes she designs. Air movement and natural light are essential to creating a retreat from everyday life. In the modern farmhouse profiled in this video, she placed the skylight at the top of the stairwell. When it’s open along with a window below, a soft breeze wafts through the house, making air conditioning unnecessary. Natural light from the skylight also creates a design feature in the stairwell: it brings out the texture of the sisal-covered steps and the wood grain of cedar plank wall.

[Back porch addition]
Just wanted to say thanks again for everything. The porch looks great, no banging in the wind last night, and I think the shingles are holding up well. Hopefully there will not be a next time, but should there be I’ll be calling you guys again.
