I really like some of these window and skylight designs! I have been looking for a way to get a little more natural lighting in my home, particularly the kitchen and living room, and along with expanding the windows to floor-to-ceiling, I'd like to have a skylight installed. But I do like your point about heat, because in a kitchen particularly, it's important to remember that more sunlight will make the room a lot hotter, so you may need more air conditioning. Thanks so much for writing!

I am going to be moving into a new apartment that doesn't get much light. How can I bring in more light since I can't install skylights or add windows?
