Skylight Shades And Blinds for Skylights by Hunter Douglas

Skylights are a wonderful addition to any home. A skylight provides tons of natural light as well as helping to boost your energy and mood. Allowing natural light to enter your home can save on energy costs and create a warm and inviting interior. However, there will be times that you may want to control the amount of light filtering in. Unlike a traditional window, you can’t simply pull a curtain over a skylight to cover it. Investing in skylight shades or blinds is a good way to control the amount of light that comes into your home, and you can also prevent temperatures from rising too much by closing the shades during the hottest part of the day. Keeping your skylights covered during peak sunlight hours can also help prevent fading on carpets and furniture.

What Is A Skylight Shade Or Blind?

A skylight shade or blind is a window covering designed specifically for the unique shape of a skylight. Since skylights are installed into the roof, often at an angle, it’s necessary to have a specific shade or blind that will fit them like a glove, ensuring that they don’t sag or fall. At Innuwindow, we specialize in creating customized skylight shades and blinds that are sized to perfectly fit your skylight’s frame.

Are There Skylight Shades That Effectively Insulate And Black Out Light?

Yes, there are skylight shades that insulate and block out light. All honeycomb skylight shades will insulate and filter light keeping your rooms cooler during summer and keeping heat from escaping during the winter. Investing in a black out skylight shade or blind will give you a shade made from a fabric impenetrable to light.  Along with having the best insulation qualities it’ll also help darken bedrooms and media rooms. A black out shade can also help prevent fading in furniture and carpets or rugs.

Is Motorized Control Available For Skylight Blinds?

Since skylights are located in the roof, it can be a challenge reaching them in order to open and close the shades. You can purchase motorized skylight shades and blinds, however, that are easy to control with just the touch of a button. Motorized skylight shades are convenient, so you can open and close your shades with ease.

Are There Vertical Skylight Blinds?

Skylight vertical blinds do exist, and they have the same benefits as other skylight blinds. Available in a variety of materials and colors, vertical skylight blinds will help to keep your home cool, control the amount of natural light that you have coming in, and are available in both motorized and manual varieties.  They are not recommended for use by Innuwindow at this time.
