Does converting your conservatory roof mean you lose out on natural light?

Categories: Blog Posts, Tiled Conservatory Roof

Deciding to convert your conservatory roof and install tiles means you’ll have a space that is far more useable. Tiled insulated roofing means you’ll be able to control the temperature of the space with ease, and won’t be forking out on heating it in the winter and cooling it during the summer. Unfortunately, converting does mean homeowners lose out on natural light, however, there are plenty of ways to make your conservatory bright while benefiting from a solid insulated roof.

Overhead windows

Despite having a solid roof, you can still enjoy overhead natural light by including skylights. The number of skylights you install depends on the size and shape of your conservatory, but all conservatory conversions can be planned to include a skylight.

Better lighting

A solid roof allows you to install better lighting, providing much needed brightness during the evenings. Choose downlights installed at various points in your new ceiling, or a central single lightbulb with a shade of your choice for overhead lighting. This can be combined with lamps and wall lighting if you really want to maximise the light you get.

Use light coloured furniture

It’s a general rule that if you want to make a space feel bigger and brighter then furniture and walls that are white or in cool shades is your best option. White or cream conservatory furniture can help make your room feel bigger and brighter so it’s worth rethinking your furniture choices once your roof is converted.
