There is something unique about the effect of the roof lantern over a kitchen orangery extension.
During the evening the use of low-voltage or, LED ceiling lights, combined with the concealed lighting within or below the kitchen units can create a unique, almost magical ambiance. Just the right environment to host some guests for a drink, whilst you complete the preparation of an evening meal… and have that glass of wine yourself too, of course!
The roof lantern in a kitchen orangery enable you to enjoy natural overall light, or where you choose. One large roof lantern can flood a kitchen with light like an atrium; while multiple roof lanterns let you focus light on work, dining or seating areas. Together with the light from the glazed walls of your orangery, the kitchen will become a bright airy space and the focal point of your home, in which the whole family will want to gather.
There are several possible benefits of the roof lantern:
- First is the fact that the combination of the orangery partial flat roof and roof lantern may make it possible to have a glazed roof where a conservatory isn’t practical.
- The glass of the roof lantern is approx. 600mm (24″) above ceiling height and can make a room with a low ceiling height look extremely spacious.
- Provision of opening roof vents enable the trapped warm air and moisture created within a kitchen to escape through the lantern. Roof vents can be manually operated or more frequently automatic, operated from a climate control and external rain sensor.
- Sometimes site lines from upper windows and access to these windows and the roof lanterns for cleaning may also influence the positioning of the lantern.
