Using VELUX skylights to make bonus rooms brighter

The bonus room of Sara Davis’s home had been designated the “man cave” because the room, which spans a three-car garage, had only one small window at one end. Davis, the home décor expert who blogs as Sincerely Sara D, had never shown the room to her readers because it was dark.

Watch the video to see how partnering with VELUX Skylights helped Sara and Steven transform the space into a light-filled family hangout. Working with VELUX 5-Star Skylight Specialist, Circle City Skylights, the couple decided to add four VELUX No Leak Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylights to the north-facing wall with a bench seat under one pair of skylights and a set of built-in shelves under the other pair.

“Adding skylights has changed the room more than I ever imagined,” Sara said. “It doesn’t even look like the same space.”
