Today I am sharing the coolest VELUX No Leak Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylights with solar powered blinds that are available in over 75 colors and patterns! Yes, 75 colors!
Skylights are not only perfect for finished attic spaces where traditional windows are not feasible but can also be amazing in bathrooms and kitchens. Keep reading because I think my bedroom is the perfect candidate for these skylights.
VELUX Skylights have energy efficient glass and open using solar power to bring in fresh air – ideal for bathrooms and kitchens or for whole-home airing. I absolutely love the idea of the built in shades.
For me personally, I would LOVE to have more natural light in my master bedroom.
This tiny window is the main source of light in the room making my bedroom the darkest room in the house.
Did you know that you can install VELUX skylights in a flat ceiling?
Yes! The VELUX skylights can even be installed on flat ceilings instead of vaulted.
I had no idea that was even possible until I partnered with VELUX to share their skylights. Here are a couple of examples of flat ceiling skylight installations. Adding skylights to this living room helped brighten the dark grey painted space.
And in this kitchen, they put shiplap in the space between the skylights and the ceiling. What a fun design detail!
I could definitely install the VELUX skylights in my bedroom as there is only an attic space above my bedroom.
Here is a picture of my bedroom last year before I painted the walls white. You can see how blah and dark the room is with just the small window.
I can definitely envision a much brighter room with two skylights installed in the center of the ceiling. I think the skylights would also make the room seem bigger too.
Besides offering a tremendous amount of additional natural light, I think the skylights would improve the bedroom’s design and add character to the space.
The feature of varying blind options also offers room darkening blinds so sleeping is no problem!
I would absolutely love to have the VELUX skylights in my bedroom. !
You always hear, “fresh air” is the best right? If you think about it, most people on average spend 90% of their time indoors where the air inside may not be the best.
Your home can actually become polluted with volatile organic compounds from things like carpet and paint, moisture from bathing and cooking or even burning candles.
The VELUX solar powered “fresh air” skylights open to allow fresh air to come in naturally and provide natural light. The solar powered blinds option allows homeowners to control the amount of light coming in while providing visually appealing blinds.
They can be automated with the VELUX ACTIVE with NETATMO smartphone app, which is compatible with Apple HomeKit or Google Home, so they can be voice controlled, too. In the room above the homeowner opted for skylights on the slanted part of the roof instead of installing full shed dormers, and I personally love how the dark grey blinds add character to the skylights.
VELUX skylights come with a 10-year No Leak warranty on product and installation. And they have a built-in rain sensor that closes the skylights at the first sign of bad weather.
I would love the solar powered open and close feature as well as the blind option in my bedroom. Not only would they allow more light into my bedroom they would look so pretty and add character and visual interest to the room.
Do you have a room in your home that VELUX skylights would be great for? A room that needs more natural light or better yet, existing skylights that you could swap out for the VELUX solar powered features?
