If you've ever wished you could bask in the sun or stare at the stars from the comfort of your sofa or bed, skylights might just be the solution for you. A glass window is a window in your ceiling that opens to the sky, allowing sunlight to penetrate during the day and the stars to shine at night.
Installing skylights in your home can save on energy costs, improve your health, and brighten up your day. If you are considering adding these prized skylights to your home, keep these some of the mentioned below tips in mind before you start remodeling:

Temperature control with insulation and windows:
Before buying, make sure the lamp has comfortable glazing, an added material that provides insulation in both the colder and warmer months. Excess heat can be reduced by using colored lenses that block UV rays. Heat loss can be controlled with built-in blinds or installed horizontal awnings.
Larger glasses provide more light and cost almost the same:
It makes sense to skimp on home remodeling projects, but don't skimp on the size of your skylights. The price difference between large and small glasses is minimal, but the difference in light output is significant. Since your main expense is the installation work and not the windows themselves, make money choosing the size you want.
Think about how the roof will look from the outside:
If you've decided to install a dormer, you've definitely spent some time figuring out where to go. But before you drill holes in the ceiling, consider how the windows from outside of your home will look like. The modern windows of an old house may look casual and out of place if they are not symmetrically aligned with other architectural features such as window sills or doors. Use the concept of symmetry when arranging skylights.
