A single roof lantern generally costs anywhere between £800 – £2600, from supply to installation.
However, there can be a broad range of factors that influence the overall cost of a roof lantern.
Not only do different roof lanterns cost different amounts, but your property and required design choices might dramatically influence the cost of each roof lantern. Some of these factors include:

Some of the core benefits of installing roof lanterns include:
Of course, these are not the only benefits. There can be a lot of advantages to lanterns depending on where and how you implement them, and the benefits will change depending on the shape, size and style of your home.
Our experts are fully prepared to help you find the perfect roof lantern for your needs, right down to the design of the roof lanterns themselves and the specific roof lantern placements that you are looking for.
We offer a wide range of roof lantern designs, from popular options like Korniche lanterns to simple styles that offer a minimal structure.
Some come in kit form while others are pre-built, but our experts work hard to make sure that each client gets something they know they like.
Major brands of roof lanterns, such as a Korniche roof lantern, are a popular choice for many of our clients.
We offer expert installation of Korniche roof lanterns and roof lanterns from similar brands that can take advantage of their unique features.
While brands like Korniche roof lanterns are not going to fit every customer’s needs, a Korniche roof lantern is a popular choice for a reason.
Korniche lanterns are only one of the many brands we can install, and if a customer wants Korniche roof lanterns, then we are fully equipped to provide them.
Korniche’s ability to construct good designs without issues like cold bridging has made them a very popular choice in the UK, and we understand how to install them in a way that ensures their maximum quality shows through.
Beyond major brands like Korniche roof lantern styles are a range of other contemporary design options.
Many of these are modern roof lantern styles that fit best in a contemporary setting, boasting things like ultra-low sightlines and the highest-quality weatherproofing.
If you want a roof lantern suitable for a contemporary setting, then we can handle the installation of modern made-to-measure flat roof lanterns that suit your requirements perfectly.
Traditional roof lantern designs can be perfect for a more classic style.
Our traditional options are still made using modern techniques, allowing even an old-style flat roof lantern to reduce heat transfer rates in the same way as an up-to-date option.
Many of these traditional options are still popular on the market, and modern options are equipped with all of the same performance and frame-reinforcing elements that make a contemporary design work.
We can also offer varied construction, allowing for both contemporary and traditional features.
For example, a modern design that is still retaining traditional features can be a great option for a homeowner that wants a more unique and mixed style.
While bespoke roof lanterns can lead to longer lead times and higher costs, they are sometimes the best option for a home where no other design feels right.

A roof lantern is a glass-and-frame construction that acts as a protruding skylight, originating in the Renaissance era.
They provide light to space from above, generally using protected glass panes to offer natural lighting without making the room any more vulnerable.
While modern designs use newer frame types and more glass options, the basic frame and idea behind roof lanterns have always remained the same. Their exact construction can vary depending on the type you choose and the added features you want.
Many of these roof lanterns are designed as high-performance roof skylights, offering reinforced and/or glazed glass that can be thermally efficient and requires minimal maintenance.
Even the most minimalist design is usually protected from things like condensation, thanks to the well-prepared silicone sealant.
The main benefit of roof lanterns is the natural lighting, but customers may also choose them for their aesthetic value or as an alternative to getting wall-based windows.
Roof lanterns can add significant value to a home.
In some cases, they can offer more value than similar installations such as glass bi-fold doors.
Many customers install these lantern roof structures because of the added home value.
Roof lanterns are a great way to add more lighting to a space without having to change the entire site dramatically.
They are also easy to source in the UK.
Generally, roof lanterns are best placed in areas where the roof receives a lot of sunlight, as well as locations where lighting is most important.
They are usually installed in kitchens and dining areas for this exact reason since these larger rooms can take more energy to light properly.
Lanterns are relatively easy to add to (or replace in) an existing roof.
Our expertise makes it easy to have a new lantern installed on an existing roof space.
There are no set sizes on roof lighting.
However, most experts recommend a lantern that covers at least 20% of the overall floor space (ideally in the middle of the space) since this increases its maximum lighting potential.
UK homes do not need planning permission for a lantern roof as long as the design does not extend more than 150mm above the existing roof’s sloping plane or above the highest part of the roof at all.
Similar to glass bi-fold doors, there can be certain situations where permission is needed when working with non-frosted glass, usually if you are putting the lantern in a bathroom or other room that requires privacy.
Skylights are fitted directly into the roof and are usually single panels.
Contemporary roof lanterns, also known as lantern roofs, are stylish architectural elements that infuse modern spaces with abundant natural light and an airy ambience.
Some skylights are also internal ones placed “beneath” the roof’s surface, while these designs are always external and protected with silicone sealant.
Our range of lantern structures for home roofs allows us to provide a variety of natural lighting options easily, working with clients to give them the best lantern design possible. We work with our customers to give them something they can enjoy rather than just a functional improvement.
From natural lighting and a brighter room to a nicer feature on your external roof, our lanterns are a great option for almost any home.
