The direction it faces will have an impact too. If the room faces south, it’ll get constant sunlight and might benefit from a smaller roof lantern, as it reduces the risk of the room overheating. On the other hand, north-facing rooms only get direct sunlight in the morning. As a result, a larger roof lantern would be the best choice as it’ll maximise the amount of light it captures and can make a dingier room more welcoming.
Finally, bear in mind that roof lanterns are windows and you’ve got to think about privacy. If any of the neighbouring buildings overlook the roof lantern, you’ll potentially have people looking in, whether intentionally or by accident. Yes, you can solve this by including roof lantern blinds, but nobody wants to install a lantern and then keep the blinds closed all day.
