Skylight Shades - Window Treatments for Skylights
Skylights bring a brighter and refreshing atmosphere to your room, as they let in more natural light than regular windows and give you a beautiful view. But just like any other window, skylight windows can also be a nuisance as they let in harmful UV rays and direct sunlight. It's just as important to cover skylights as it is to have custom blinds on any other window - for energy efficiency, room darkening, and extra insulation from the heat. So take a look at our skylight window treatments which are designed to mount to your hard to reach windows and to put light control back into your hands.

Is installing skylight blinds difficult?
Skylight shades are just as easy to install as any other type of window treatment, however you just need to be comfortable working on a ladder. Otherwise you can simply install your skylight shades by screwing in brackets to the top and bottom of your window, and then clipping on the headrails. Many skylight shades will also include side channels to help guide the shade, which are installed on the left and right side of the window.
How do skylight blinds operate?
If you have motorized skylight shades, then you simply operate the window coverings by pushing up or down on your paired remote control. Some motorized systems will also have the option for scheduling or automations through an app.
If you have a non-motorized skylight shade, then usually you will operate your shade through a telescoping pole that hooks on to the handle of the shade. It is a simple solution that allows you to access your hard to reach windows.
Do window treatments for skylights provide good natural light control?
Yes! Window treatments for skylights are a great way to get natural light control back into your hands. While we love our skylights for the light they bring, sometimes you just need a bit of relief or darkness. Skylight shades are most commonly found in pleated shades, honeycomb shades or cellular shades styles, which are excellent for insulation and light control. Choose a light filtering fabric for something that will let in a soft glow of light even when the shade is closed, or go for a blackout fabric if you want complete darkness.
