Solatubes: does the light feel real?

fatladyJune 5, 2010

We are interested in getting a Solatube for our garage conversion.

Does the light from the Solatube feel like real sunlight or light from a light bulb. Because it is just a garage conversion, I am thinking it would be cheaper to put in an extra ceiling light instead.

Also, the outside part that sits on the roof looks rather unattractive. Is there a way around masking this? Buiding a fake chimney cover??

It will look like an extremely bright light.

Putting a cover/ fake housing would reduce the amount of light transmitted.
Why not a skylight?
