Atlas skylight and Smart aluminium bifold doors.

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt during our decade serving Kent homeowners, it’s that there is no such thing as too much natural light. Unfortunately however, some styles of home were designed in such way that some rooms can often feel dim, dilapidated, and as a result become unloved and unused. Our team recently helped one local family living in Bearsted resolve this issue, with the installation of a high performance pitched skylight and smooth sliding Smart bifold doors.

Both products were chosen to be supplied and installed using high performance aluminium systems, simply because the material is better able to withstand larger panes of glass, therefore letting the homeowners enjoy the largest influx of natural light possible. We thoroughly discussed with them their intentions, and brightening up the back of the home in any way possible was of top priority.

With this in mind, the DWL team got to work manufacturing a bespoke skylight specifically designed for this Bearsted home. Using the Atlas aluminium system (considered by most to be the leading one in its field), the skylight’s steeply pitched design was perfect for making the best use of any sun light capable of hitting its angles. The combination of sleek sightlines and large glass surface area meant that a brighter atmosphere would always be a certainty.

We knew that the Atlas system skylight or “roof lantern” would easily compliment the Kent home both practically and stylistically, simply because our supplier Express Skylights make them bespoke every time. Family-run by industry experts, they helped make this installation just as stress-free as our team also allowed it to be.

As well as enhancing the amount of light able to enter from above, we thought it necessary to also treat the family to a set of high performance bifolding doors, introducing views as well as light for the family to enjoy. Fitted with a set of internal blinds integrated between each door pane’s double glazing, it would always remain easy for the family to adjust the amount of light entry with just the flick of a switch. Both products were installed using a deep Black RAL colour tone, seamlessly tying in with the existing aesthetic of the property naturally.

This Bearsted family were immediately impressed with their new set of aluminium bifold doors and skylight. Whereas previously they would struggle to feel closer to the outside and purposefully avoid the back of their home, one swift DWL service later these problems were a thing of the past. All of our aluminium products just as thermally insulating as they are stylish, so the space is now able to keep warm too!
