RESULTS 

The conceptual designs become a reality 

PRODUCT 

5 Solatube 290DS Brighten Up Series units 

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 we 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 systems, the designer and homeower went for the wow factor and 5 290DS Brighten Up Series units were installed into the kitchen.

RESULTS 

The residential kitchen now no longer requires electrical lighting to be left switched on during the day, thanks to our daylighting systems. The homeowners were so pleased with the results that a further two systems were then installed into a previously dark hallway. The transformation throughout has been a fantastic project from start to finish and we've have been happy to help. 
"We actually went for more tubes than we were actually advised to go for, we went for 5 tubes in that part of the kitchen, and again we were pleased we did that, because the extra light was well worth the extra cost. We were so pleased with the tubes that we subsequently had them installed in another part of the house to bring some light into a rather dark corridor, and equally we were pleased with those. The guys who fitted them were impeccable with their service and their courtesy and I can honestly say the installation was pleasant."
