How much was that sky light ?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
This looks to be about the size of a VELUX FS-M08 which is a fixed 30x54" skylight. These start around $300, flashing kits go for $110. Venting and Solar Venting Models bump the price up of course but are well worth the fresh air. Blinds may be desired for many climates to control temperature and sunlight depending on your needs. Peruse VELUX Fixed skylights here:

How efficient is this skylight? I know there can be some heat transfer through even the smaller skylights and I imagine one of this size could have considerable heat transfer. I really love the way it looks and would love to install something similar in my home.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Skylights are an effective means of bringing additional natural light to kitchens, an important consideration, given that artificial light can affect the color rendition of foods. But this photo makes it clear that as the sun traces its path overhead, its direct rays can lead to heat gain (requiring more air conditioning).

John Maniscalco Architecture Save Email Cook up a skylight Roof windows pull in more light than vertical ones, so if you have the opportunity to incorporate one, it will drench your kitchen in sunshine. The cream walls and pale wood in this scheme enhance the rays for a golden mood.

Skylight. Pros- Light would be shining through the top instead of the side, like most windows. It would be a nice view of the sky. Cons- if the light was shining at a specific angle, it could get in the way. May get a little freaky. This would suit a kitchen very well.
