    I have had two houses with skylights, and a little bit of leaking on both, so although I like the natural light, I would never voluntarily install one.

    Would it help lighten the room considerably? We have skylights in rooms that would be very dark otherwise, however, they have both leaked and we are considering taking them out so make sure to research really well before installing any

    I would say no effect. If you like it and you want a sky light. Go for it. But don’t do it thinking you will get your money back.

    It really just depends on who would look at the house and what they would prefer. I personally think it would be a nice addition and would add some value and I think that alot of people would think the same but to each his own so I cant speak for everyone. If you have the option I would recommend going for it.

    I think I’d prefer a chandelier or other artificial light source over a table, otherwise it’s too dark at night. A skylight is really nice in the kitchen work area, but if you’re going to spend money to increase the value, I’d spend it on cabinets and counter tops first.

    Forget the skylight, Just something more to go wrong, spend your money on something else that would make it appealing to a buyer.

    no, best selling points are

    matching appliances/higher end or using all white appliances make the kitchen appear larger

    lots of counter top space/cabinet(cup boards)/pantry

    nice counter tops… granite

    having all of your fixtures matching along with the details of your kitchen (light switches, outlet plugs, handles & pulls on the cabinets

    tiles /back-splash

    No (or bad) effect. Spend your money on a nice light fixture. It will never leak and will add light at night.

    Nice touch, sunlight in a kitchen enhances mood and is a deterent to mildew. But, if installed just for resale, considering the effort on the roof to flash it right etc. it often isn’t a cost recovered.

    It is if you’d enjoy it and are going to live in the house awhile. If you’re just going to turn this house arround It’s not worth the price of it.

    we put one in our new home and we love it. the only thing is ours is in the middle of the kitchen over a work island.never thought of putting over the kitchen table.were would you put the light that is normally there?never thought of that either!any case sky lights are a selling feature.we also have whats caller a sun tunnel in our hall way. due to it being in the center of the house we had to put the light on during the day. it was to dark.folks that see it think it is a light because it is flush with the ceiling and has a frosted glass cover.real cool.
