Traditional Roof Lanterns – Traditional roof lanterns are made using hardwood or timber primarily and are usually designed to be a pyramid or rectangular shape. The shape and size always depends on the location and specifics of the installation, and although the specific style of a traditional roof lantern can change the framework remains the same.
Contemporary Roof Lanterns – Contemporary roof lanterns can be made to bespoke measures and are perfect for the more modern of property. It would be an unbalanced aesthetic to install a traditional timber roof lantern in an otherwise modern and sleek home, and that’s where these designs come into play.
Architectural Roof Lanterns – The difference between an architectural lantern and a traditional roof lantern in the amount of light and space that is brought into the room. With an architectural roof lantern above you there is a real increase in the airiness and clean feel to a room. So whether you want to use the space as a winter hideaway or a summer relaxation space there will be plenty of light and air.
Curved Roof Lanterns – Sometimes a roof lantern can be designed and installed that doesn’t quite match the specifications of the exterior of the property. It’ll look great, for sure, but maybe there is scope to add even more light and air into the room? That is where curved lanterns can make a real difference, with the timber and glass design adding a bit of style to your property, expanding the amount of light through an exact match with the specifications at hand.
Hardwood Roof Lanterns – Coming in a wide range of styles, a roof lantern made of hardwood is designed to last a long, long time. What makes oak or timber roof lanterns last is that it is a material that is solid, of the highest quality and, even better, has the maintenance properties that ensures it is easy to clean and look after. Your hardwood roof lantern will last as long as you do in your current home!
