VELUX recently held a competition for homeowners in the UK and Ireland who want to build a new or upgrade an existing single-storey extension in their home.
The competition asked entrants to explain why roof windows would make a difference to their extension and how important a brighter environment in their home was to them.
There were ten winners who will receive up to four VELUX INTEGRA solar or electric roof windows and £1,000 worth of John Lewis vouchers.
Among the winners was Georgina Welsh, who’s home will be the first in the UK to be fitted with the VELUX curved glass rooflights for flat roofs.
Georgina explained that she had avoided using the dining room in her new home as it was so dark. She knew something needed to be done about it eventually and winning the competition allowed them to start work sooner.
“We’ve knocked down two walls to create a multi-functional kitchen and entertaining space at the back of our home, and an integral part of the design was to have two large VELUX roof windows,” Georgina explained.
She added: “We are over the moon to have won the competition and the VELUX flat roof windows have now been installed and bring much needed light and fresh air into our home just in time for the arrival of our baby.”
The competition was part of a wider extensions campaign to inspire and support homeowners with practical tips, advice and tools to help them create their dream single-storey extension with VELUX roof windows, which can let in twice as much daylight as vertical windows of the same size.
