Published: 12th January 2023

When brightening up your living space and adding a touch of elegance to your home, roof lights are an excellent choice. They not only flood your interior with natural light and add ventilation but also create a unique and stylish ambience.

However, choosing the right size roof light for your home can be a bit tricky. That’s where Ofset comes in. We specialise in selling and installing the Blade and Blade Lite roof lights, offering a wide range of roof light sizes to suit your needs.

One-Piece Wonder: Up to 6000 x 3200 in One Piece

The seamless design of these roof lights ensures that they perform exceptionally and look stunning on your roof.

Multi-Section Design: Up to ANY SIZE x 6000

How to Choose the Right Size Rooflight for Your Home

Now that you’re familiar with the sizes available for Blade and Blade Lite roof lights let’s delve into how you can determine the size of the right skylights for your home.

Consider the Room Size and Purpose

The first factor to consider is the size of the room where the roof window will be installed and its intended purpose. For larger living areas or commercial spaces, the Blade roof light’s one-piece design might be the perfect choice, offering a grand and unobstructed view of the sky.

The Blade Lite roof light’s 3000 x 1500 mm size might be ideal for smaller rooms or more budget-conscious projects.

Maximise Natural Light With Your Roof Window

Rooflights are a fantastic way to maximise the amount of natural light in your home. When selecting the size, think about how much light you want to bring into the space. Larger roof lights, like the Blade, will flood the room with light, while small roof lights, such as the Blade Lite, can provide a more subtle glow.

Consider the Roof Structure

The structural integrity of your flat roof is crucial when selecting the size of your roof window. The larger the roof light, the more significant the impact on the roof’s structural support may be.

It’s essential to consult with a professional installer, like Ofset, to ensure that the chosen roof light size is compatible with your house and existing roof plane.

Aesthetics Matter

Rooflights aren’t just functional; they also contribute to your home’s aesthetics. Consider how the size and design of the roof light will complement your home’s architectural style. A well-chosen roof light can enhance your living space’s overall look and feel.

Energy Efficiency

Another aspect to keep in mind is energy efficiency. Larger roof lights may have a more significant impact on your home’s heating and cooling, as they can affect the insulation properties of your roof.

Ensure that your chosen roof light is designed to be energy-efficient to help maintain a comfortable indoor climate.

Do You Need Planning Permission For Large Rooflights?

The need for planning permission for large roof lights can vary based on factors such as property size, location, if it’s a listed building, in a conservation area and local regulations. In many cases, planning permission may be unnecessary if the roof lights adhere to size limits and do not significantly alter the property’s external appearance. However, it’s crucial to consult with your local planning authority or a professional architect to determine the specific requirements for your situation.
