I saw this editorial last week on the Architectural Digest site and it inspired me to share my thoughts on skylights. We have 11 skylights throughout our home that totally set the tone for the mood desired when we remodeled. They obviuosly function to let in an abundant amount of light and I was reminded of their effect when we had to cover them briefly for some roof maintenance. What a drastic difference. Another thing I love about them, if they are venting like mine, is the ability to let in a cool breeze or have warm air or shower steam escape. I especially take advantage of this in the evenings where I want air moving in the house without opening doors and windows. Lastly, the beauty of looking up and seeing the changing sky, clouds passing, tree branches swaying or birds flying by is a visual treat I will never tire of.
