New bright and functional rooms

"When we took over the upper floor there was a big space up here, with a kitchen and two small extra rooms above - so it was on two levels, and it was very dark," says Jonas Ibfelt. To turn a dream into reality the family got in touch with a house architect, who was to help convert the old, dark spaces into bright, functional rooms. It was a good idea, for even though the family had its own thoughts and ideas, they benefited from having a professional look after the project.

An incredible 15 roof windows made the dream into an exciting reality

Daylight came to play an important role in the renovation, because in no way could the facade windows alone have created the bright upper floor the family were dreaming of. Now, as soon as you are on the staircase between the ground floor and the first floor you encounter a flood of daylight, contributed by the four roof windows in the form of a 'Dannebrog' solution. Apart from the daylight streaming between the two levels, the windows also have a practical function. "We had the problem of the walking height in the stairwell being pretty tight. The solution of putting a big Dannebrog-style window there firstly gave us loads of light, which is fantastic, but also a walking height on the staircase that made it usable," says Jonas Ibfelt.

Main benefits of getting VELUX roof windows

  1. The requisite level of daylight: Daylight came to play an important role in the renovation, because in no way could the facade windows alone have created the bright upper floor the family were dreaming of.

  2. Functional advantage: Apart from the daylight streaming between the two levels, the windows also have a practical function. "We had the problem of the walking height in the stairwell being pretty tight. The solution of putting a big Dannebrog window there firstly gave us loads of light, which is fantastic, but also a walking height on the staircase that made it usable," says Jonas Ibfelt.

  3. Emphasis on cosiness for the family: A functional landing, where it is possible to relax on a daybed with a view of the sky and the trees in the garden, plus a small loft space, giving the children some extra space.
