Skylight location for dark kitchen

6 years ago

This kitchen will undergo a complete remodel shortly and the finished product will have a single level counter top, white cabinets that extend to the ceiling, and some can lights. As you can see in the photos, the room is dark box, especially in the mornings. The kitchen faces west and there is a sliding glass door out to the yard. The open area of the U-shaped kitchen is about 8' x 6'.

A skylight will provide nice light and add an architectural element. Task/pendant lights will be needed over the sink & counter. I would appreciate any suggestions as to location and size of a skylight (or 2?). Are there any rules or guidelines to be aware of regarding size and placement? Should the skylight align (if possible) with the existing patio doors?

Your input is much appreciated.
