Roof Lantern extension ideas

We have all seen the stunning roof lantern that is featured in all the home improvement magazines and TV Shows. Even from a picture, they create a ‘wow factor’, and even before we have considered any other benefit, we instantly want one. Constructed from four panes of glass, a roof lantern sits on a flat roof extension and is made of either aluminium or uPVC.

Where you place your roof lantern is entirely up to you. However, think about your space. Do you want to have a dramatic skylight over your kitchen island? Or do you want to be able to create a striking focal point of your dining table? For larger modern extensions, you could even have two smaller roof lanterns. However, when it comes to designing your roof lantern extension, size really matters! If your roof lantern is too large, it could end up looking out of proportion, and a bit overwhelming, too small and it could end up looking out of place. Here at Chigwell Window Centre, our experts can advise the best positioning and design of your roof lantern to perfectly suit your space.

    Are roof lanterns noisy when it rains?

    A frequent worry with roof Lanterns is the noise levels when it rains. However, an effective design reduces the levels of noise from rain and other external noise! The more glass panes utilised in the design of a Lantern, the lower amount of external noise there is, and the more distance between the glass panes, the better the sound insulation will be. Denser glass panes will also help in decreasing the overall noise levels.

    Does a roof lantern need planning permission?

    Typically, you do not need planning permission to install a roof lantern as long as permitted development regulations are followed. These are…

    • Roof lanterns must not be 150mm above the sloping plane of the existing roof
    • Roof lanterns must be no higher than the highest part of the roof
    • Roof lanterns positioned in a side elevation roof slope must use obscure glazing
    • No roof openings are allowed, except if the height is at least 1.7m above the floor

    However, if you live in a conservation area or a new build development, it is likely you will be acquire planning permission from your local authority or housing development.
