Skylights are a beautiful feature in any home that lets in natural light, expands a room and offers a gorgeous view. It seems like a perfect type of window due to its multiple benefits, but there can be some issues that arise from this type of window, like sun glare and excessive heat that can change the comfort of the room. But don’t worry, you can make the most out of your skylight window by covering it with a custom window treatment. Budget Blinds® offers two styles of window coverings that are perfect for covering a skylight.
- Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are an extremely versatile window covering, ideal for a skylight. They can be custom-made to fit perfectly into a skylight window. Cellular shades are designed with small honeycomb-shaped pockets to keep air from entering or escaping. Cellular fabrics provide an insulating layer to keep your room cool, which is helpful when you have direct sunlight and heat from your skylight. They come in a variety of fabrics and colors to choose from to match your unique style. Cellular shades are offered in various degrees of light-filtering options including sheer, light filtering, room-darkening and blackout fabrics which help with light control and insulation.
- Roller Shades
Roller shades are a very popular and customizable window covering that will fit perfectly in any size skylight window. Budget Blinds offers unique and fashion-forward roller shades from our exclusive line, Inspired Shades™. This collection comes in over 80 original prints and 240 decorative fabrics that will look beautiful in any window. For UV protection, roller shades come in a variety of light-filtering options for minimal coverage to blackout to give you complete light control.
Make Sure You Add Motorization
Motorization is key when it comes to the operation of skylight window coverings. Skylights are generally hard-to-reach windows and motorization allows you to enjoy all the benefits of a skylight window whenever you choose. Motorization lets you control the light with the touch of a button. It will also help prevent too much light and heat from coming in through your skylight because you can program your window coverings to operate even when you are not at home. You can also set timers to open and close at certain times of the day which will help reduce heat and save you money on your energy bill. You can choose from an array of control options such as wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes and apps that allow you to control your window covering from any location. Cellular and roller shades are both available with motorization.
Skylights are wonderful windows to have in any room, but why not make the best of the window with a motorized window treatment? Having a treatment that can open and close at any time is perfect when you want to enjoy the sunlight.
