Velux Sun Tunnel Skylights
If you’ve ever wished you could brighten up your upstairs hallway or bring some natural light into a walk-in closet, you should spend some time looking at Velux’s line of Sun Tunnel Skylights. They're a great alternative to electrical lights, are easy to install, and once they are in, they require virtually no upkeep.
The principal is very simple. Light enters the tunnel through a little bubble that sits on your roof, it travels through the tunnel, and is dispersed at the other end through a frosted diffuser that looks like a recessed light. Now your dark, dank hallway looks as fresh and airy as Martha Stewart's rose garden
The tunnels come in a variety of styles to suit your needs. There are options for roof pitch as well as tunnel type (rigid or flexible). Also avalable is the option to install a little light in the fixture so you're not just depending on the sun.
The rigid tunnels come with 4' of tubing and the flexible come with 6' to 8'. Additional tubing is available. Depending on the model the maximun lengths of the tunnels can be up to 14'.
Velux’s Sun Tunnels retail from between $250 and $350.
