Well-placed windows can completely transform a room; offering a special view, comfortable natural sunlight, and a relaxed open feeling floor plan. Skylights are especially attractive windows for a home and often times serve as a focal piece for the entire room. A bright and bold skylight lightens up a dark and dreary room, without having to skimp on privacy or comfort.
While skylights make such an amazing additional to the home, they do not come without their own unique difficulties as well. Mainly, these vaulted, hard to reach, and angled windows can be especially difficult to style or operate. The refreshing sunlight coming through your skylight can be a dream come true on a chilly spring morning, and an uncomfortable nightmare on a searing hot summer afternoon. For those struggling with the delicate balance, skylight window coverings can be the perfect solution.
Skylight blinds or skylight curtains are often overlooked by homeowners, who understandably assume their skylight’s height and location would make skylight window coverings an impossible or expensive feat. Thankfully, there are plenty of options available to help increase the energy efficiency of your home, control the operation of a difficult skylight, and add a stylish new design element to enhance the look of your home.
Motorized skylight blinds take the energy and effort out of controlling access to a skylight. Hard-to-reach skylight blinds open and close with the touch of a button for the upmost in convenience. Choose a fabric that matches the color scheme of other designs in the room to create a cohesive and consistent look, or choose a room-darkening material that will help blackout sunlight in the summer and insulate heat in the winter to increase the energy efficiency of your home. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, a bright pop of color on skylight blinds or skylight curtains can add a new element of playfulness and excitement to a room.
Skylight window treatments are a quick and easy way to help increase your home’s energy efficiency while providing your home a level of design and comfort that can’t be beat.
