7 Reasons Why Skylights Will be the New Big Thing in the Lighting Sectorby Mickie Thomas Skylights Los Angeles
Skylights are lighting structures used since the Roman times. Traditional skylights were mere openings in the ceiling of the places which allowed sunlight to enter and illuminate the whole place. They were daylighting structures as they could not be used during the night.
It does seem as an advancement in technology to have openings in the ceiling but modern skylights are way too different than the traditional ones.
Modern structures can be installed where traditional ones or windows cannot be installed, adding a new use to it. The two major types of structures include roof skylight, which are installed in broader places and tube skylights, which are installed in narrower places. The privacy option that it offers is skylight shades, which are installed in bathrooms and bedrooms to add privacy to the whole place.
A few reasons why Skylights will be the new big thing in lighting sector are as follows:

The levels will increase more in a few years which will create a need for skylights even more to avoid wasting energy on lighting where skylights can be used and the environment can be benefitted.
