Let a lantern be your lightAnother option for those leaning towards a more classic style is to have a large roof lantern. People who want to avoid too much modernity often recoil at the idea of a flat roof despite the cost savings (flat roofs are almost always cheaper, though glazing makes both flat and pitched roofs more expensive). However, a flat roof can be concealed behind a parapet wall and also have a huge opening for a roof lantern (either a pitched or a flat one), and this arrangement is an entirely different matter: daylight will pour in, even if the rest of the extension is not heavily glazed.The other big benefit of a roof lantern is that it can become something of a centrepiece, particularly if stationed above a table or island.Find architects and building designers in your area

Love a lanternAn increasingly popular alternative to an extension with a lean-to roof and some roof windows is to have a flat roof with a large glass ‘lantern’. These can be in the traditional pitched-roof form with lots of glazing bars, reminiscent of a Georgian orangery (as in this example) or can be more contemporary, flat and free of glazing bars – almost like having a neat rectangular hole in the ceiling.

The extension has been built into the bank of the property’s big, sloping garden, which is why the space needed as much natural light as possible. Kara says it was a bit like ‘building a bunker’ and that the space could easily have felt closed in if they hadn’t added the skylight.The Shaker-style kitchen fits in perfectly with Kara and Jerry’s pared-back style. A classic black, gas-fired Aga adds a modern rustic touch. Although the grand kitchen island with its granite worktop provides great storage and workspace, Kara says the family still prefer to eat at the dining table, since it’s more practical with a small child.Kitchen design, Tippers.
