I mentioned a couple weeks ago that I would be unveiling a couple more projects, well, this is one of them. I am thrilled to have partnered with Velux USA to add these amazing VELUX No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights in the Sunroom. It's no secret that I am a big fan of natural light as you always see  always chasing the light around our home on Instagram plus all my plants in the sunroom need all the natural light they can get; ESPECIALLY Glory The Fig. Therefore adding VELUX No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights in the sunroom don't only add aesthetic beauty but also make the sunroom an even more efficient habitat for the plants. O.K., let's take a look at a bit of the process, shall we?

Before installation, I met with the installation crew from Sun4Light.  Sun4Light serves the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Pinehurst, Wilmington and Greensboro, NC. and they made sure the sunroom was in a location that was compatible with the criteria/requirements required for skylight installation. Once they determined that the sunroom met the requirements, we were all set! The pic above shows a bit of the initial process with painter's tape being used to mark of the skylights' placement in the ceiling and the space being prepped for installation.

Next was making the openings in the ceiling by removing the drywall. I was so giddy with excitement at this stage!

And then it was time to secure the VELUX No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights in place. The skylights are equipped with an acoustic rain sensor that closes the skylight at the first sign of rain. How cool is that! If you've ever considered getting skylights, you can use the Find An Installer feature on the Velux site simply by entering your zip code.

 The VELUX No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylights are solar powered, so no wiring is required during installation. Although windows abound in the sunroom, the skylights will add all-day sunlight from above and the added benefit of opening automatically, using the VELUX Active system, to bring in fresh air.

The skylights  also have light filtering solar powered blinds that are remote or smartphone app controlled. 
I love this feature because it makes it  possible for me to diffuse or filter sunlight coming in through the skylights. Another great feature is that they can also be opened with a smartphone app;  the VELUX Active with Netatmo  which enables automation.

A before pic to remind you of what this area looked like before. We removed the fan and replaced it with a modern light that we had(see below pic).

The plants are loving being able to see the sky and Glory is also enjoying her new views and fresh air. I am curious and excited  to see how she'll grow now that she has light above.
