Because it's cut into the rafters, a skylight can provide a few much-needed inches above a sink or toilet that's tucked under the eaves, so you can use them without fear of bumping your noggin.
Order these upgrades with your skylights—they're worth it:
Remote-control operation to let you open and shut high skylights with the touch of a button.
Roll-up insect screens to keep out bugs and debris. The screens can be retracted for cleaning the glass.
Solar shades to prevent indoor temps from climbing too high. They're juiced by the power of the sun.
