We have an existing rooflight on the flat roof of a loft conversion. This is now a bedroom and needs a window treatment. It is about 90cmx90cm and so far i cant find a satisfactory solution. I'd be grateful for ideas. I live in London

Something to consider .. you tend to put roof lights where you want light. Sometimes with the focus on this you forget you will also want light there at night. So do consider how the roof light will affect the positioning of lighting etc.

I’m a bit surprised there is no mention of how you access the windows to clean them properly. I always wonder with huge sky lights over extensions how easy they are to maintain, especially given that access to our kitchen velux window is always a bit challenging.
