At A&B Glass and Mirror, there’s almost nothing we love more than hearing from homeowners who are interested in skylight installations. Of course, we’re always thrilled when clients contact us about glass showers, sliding glass doors, and the other services we offer, but with summer just around the corner, we’re particularly excited about skylights.

In today’s post, we’re going to explain a few major features and benefits of skylights. If you’re interested in learning more about how you and your family could benefit from added skylights, just get in touch with our team!

Why Your Home Needs Skylights

Natural Light

First and foremost, skylights are one of the best ways to fill your home with copious amounts of natural sunlight. While windows can sometimes create uneven lighting and cause glares, skylights provide rooms with a more even distribution of light.

Even lighting is just the beginning, though. Natural light has also been proven to help you become more awake and alert in the morning, and it can also increase feelings of well-being and positivity! If you’re working from home or spending more time indoors (and let’s be honest, who isn’t right now?), you’ll be happy to know that there are a number of studies showing that students and professionals are more productive when working in natural light.

Energy Savings

The best home improvement projects give you a financial return on the time and money you put into them. In addition to the health and wellness benefits of natural light, you can also expect to see some financial benefits after investing in skylights. Many homeowners are able to keep artificial lights off throughout the day, which significantly cuts down on their energy usage in the long run.

Resale Value

If you’re planning to sell your home in the next several years, investing in skylights is a great way to make your home stand out from the competition and justify a higher asking price.

Natural light is one of the most common features that buyers look for in a home, and the majority of homes in Midland simply can’t compete with a home that’s been outfitted with skylights.

Skylights are also a major asset from a seller’s perspective. They make rooms appear much more spacious and welcoming, potentially saving you the hassle of rearranging furniture or adding mirrors to the walls in an effort to make a room seem larger.


Last, but certainly not least, skylights are a great way to increase your privacy. If you’re like many people, then you probably feel a bit of tension between opening your blinds during the day and feeling protected. Skylights provide the perfect solution by allowing you to keep your blinds closed during the day while still receiving sunlight!
