What is a lantern roof?
A lantern roof is usually found on a flat roof, like that of an orangery or extension. They combine a high-specification conservatory with a skylight to create a roof light window. Hence, roof lanterns act as a way of increasing natural light into a property. Moreover, installing a lantern style window to the roof can increase the energy efficiency of a property too, saving the homeowner money on bills over time. Therefore, they are the ideal way to make an impact and to make the home feel airy and spacious.
The styles of lanterns include:
- Gable shaped or rectangular – the most common style, found on orangeries and extensions
- Smaller lantern – resembles a large skylight style window
