BACKGROUND: The homeowners of this property were looking to completely redesign their home kitchen to a newer, and more modern, spacious design. The concept for this kitchen had already been created by a specialist kitchen designer. Digital concepts were created and presented to us to see how Solatube Daylighting Systems could play our part in helping making this concept design a reality.
CHALLENGE: One of the issues this kitchen-dining room already faced before the redesign took place was the lack of natural daylight being brought into the area. The dining room area was already exposed to natural daylight thanks to the large patio doors, however, the kitchen side of the room had only one small window through which daylight could enter. This meant during the day time, the kitchen was dark and electrical lighting was having to be left on - an issue that the homeowner wished to resolve.
SOLUTION: The kitchen designer recommended Solatube Daylighting Systems as a solution to the kitchen's daylighting needs. After an intial home survey, it was decided that even though the area would be filled with daylight using as few as two Solatube Daylighting Systems, the designer and homeower went for the wow factor and 5 Solatube 290DS Brighten Up Series units were installed into the kitchen.
