Skylights Need Window Treatments Too

A skylight in your home can really open a room. These unique windows provide better lighting than a lot of traditional windows and offer a view of the sky that will make any space feel larger. Of course, they can also let in light when you would rather it was dark. Or allow heat and cold in when you would rather keep it out. Because of their location and shape, it can be a challenge to find a window treatment that will not only cover the skylight but also allow you to easily cover and uncover the skylight without the help of a ladder.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades near Campbell, California (CA) Skylight window treatments, Blinds ’N’ Shades Express.

At Blinds ’N’ Shades Express, we pride ourselves on offering solutions to every one of your window treatment problems, and skylights are no different. We offer a variety of shades and blinds that are made just for skylights. That way, you can make the most out of absolutely every window in your home.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades are, by far, our most popular and requested skylight window treatment. This is because of their energy-efficient cellular design. These shades have small pockets that trap air and keep your home insulated from the heat and the cold. Those same air pockets also work wonderfully for sound absorption, soaking up about 70% of sound energy, making them the perfect choice when you want a little bit of peace and quiet. With over 150 different fabric colors, textures, and patterns to choose from, there is sure to be something that will match your unique personal style.

For installing Duette® Honeycomb Shades, you can use the Hunter Douglas SkyLift™ skylight system, which is a specially designed operating system just for skylights. It can be operated with a hand crank, or a telescoping pule for those higher and harder to reach skylights. If you’re looking for remote operation, you can even combine the SkyLift™ system with PowerView® Automation which will allow you to operate your shades with a remote, app, or even with your voice by connecting PowerView® to your smart home system.

Vertical Blinds

If you’re looking for more variable light control from your skylight, then a vertical blind is going to be your best choice. These blinds have a vane that can rotate up to 180 degrees allowing you to let in the perfect amount of light at the exact angle you want it. They can also traverse along a track allowing you to completely open or close your skylight. Both options offer 75% UV protection so you can keep your furnishings looking nice and vibrant.

Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds are available in fabric, vinyl, and aluminum and offer the largest selection of colors and finishes of any of our blind choices. They are even available in unique geometric patterns making them the perfect choice if you want your skylight to stand out or you’re looking to perfectly match your bedspread.

Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds are the minimalist approach. They provide UV protection and sound absorption, all with an understated style that will keep the focus on what is outside your skylight instead of what is covering it.
