Can you put shades on skylights?
Yes! Many people don’t realize that shades for skylights are one of the most popular window treatments due to their ease of use and energy efficiency. They are easily mounted to your skylight opening and are supported by a frame, which also creates an energy efficient barrier at your window. Skylight shades can be operated manually with a pole, or you can get motorized skylight shades that operate using a remote. By blocking out the sun’s rays, they can help keep your home at a comfortable temperature. They can also help reduce glare and UV rays. This can be beneficial if you have sensitive skin or are trying to protect your furniture from fading.
What’s the best way to block the sun in a skylight?
When choosing skylight shades for your home, it is important to consider the size and shape of your skylights, as well as the amount of light you want to be able to control. If you’re looking for the best skylight shades to block out the sun, our experts recommend using blackout cellular skylight shades. These shades are made with a blackout liner that blocks 100% of the light through the material itself. They can be raised or lowered to adjust the amount of light they let in, and they have side channels that reduce light gaps.
In comparison, skylight blinds are a cheaper option, but they don't always completely block out the light. Drapes are another option, but they can be difficult to install. Lastly, skylight cellular shades can be a little bit more difficult to clean than other options.
