Roof windows are a powerful choice because they add more daylight, which transforms the look and feel of the home throughout the day. Daylight can also help reduce energy bills, boost our health and well-being, and balance our circadian rhythms so we sleep better. Daylight can also increase property value and buyer appeal - according to Blueoak Estates, 61% of homes with more daylight sell more quickly.
Whether you’re intending to live in your new home for the long haul or have your eye on selling, let’s look in detail at how to add value to your home with roof windows.
Roof windows allow more daylight and connection to nature
Did you know that roof windows provide at least twice as much light as vertical windows of the same size? They allow a lovely variation of light levels throughout the day, which helps make rooms feel bigger and shows off architectural features to their best.
Roof windows also help rooms feel more connected to the natural world outside, connecting us with changing hues of sky, views of trees and plants and shifting weather. When designing your new build home carefully placed roof windows can be a fantastic design feature and help the indoors feel connected to views outside.

Roof windows can increase property value and help your home sell faster
Roof windows bring the “wow” factor to a home and make it stand out from others on the market, thanks to their architectural interest and daylight-boosting power. For example, a living room or kitchen flooded with natural light can be hugely appealing to potential home buyers. Likewise, now that remote working is commonplace, a home office filled with daylight from above can help a buyer imagine happily working in the space.
Even if you intend to live there for a long while, adding roof windows will add value to your home and help secure you a great price if you come to sell in the future. And of course, you get to enjoy all that lovely daylight too!
