Mylar in the loft

11 Mar 2012: Hmmm perhaps I am getting too enthusiastic with the Mylar. Here is a photograph (evening shot) of the side reveal of the Velux roof light in the loft, with a Mylar lining, fixed with robust duct tape. The idea is to make the loft a bit brighter in the daytime.
   I have now mylarred one reveal in my home-office to see how that looks in sunlight. Looks good in daylight... but paradoxically, as you can see in the photo, a night time shot shows that the light emitted from it is nothing, its reflecting the darkness outside. A white reveal is the most all-round solution. But I am still going to try it on the reveals that face south.
