HELP! Flat Roof VS Gable in Rear Extension

We are planning a rear extension and are struggled to find the right type of roof for us.

What we are trying to create is an open space for around 50M in total, the extension will be approx 3x5 M ( 3M out) . There will be sliding door to the garden and two sky lights.

In order to achieve a flat ceiling, we will need to apply for planning permission, hence, we stared to wonder if we should go for gable / A frame.

Can anyone share their experience?

I am particularly interested to know:

- Natural light - Would a flat ceiling be sufficient to bring light form garden to the back of the room?

- Does it make the space feel bigger?

- Does it look nice? / easy to plan furnitures?

Thank you !
