What Houzz contributors are saying:
Add lots of glassIf you’re building a low-roofed extension, consider adding plenty of glazing. Full-height (and width) glazed doors will create a spacious feel in the room and draw the eye away from the low ceiling. Also think about installing a roof light to prevent the low ceiling from impinging on the space.
Glazing is designed to allow optimal levels of natural light to enter a room while allowing visibility to the outside world. Glazing can also prevent bi-directional heat transfer, preventing heat from leaving an interior in the winter, while keeping it out during the summer. This helps to keep energy bills lower, protects the environment and improves indoor air quality. Double and triple glazing also provide acoustic protection, reducing exterior noise heard inside.
