5 Ways to Cover Hot Skylight Windows

Q: Do you have skylight windows you don’t know how to cover?


Skylight windows can be a great solution to angled ceilings
and add plenty of natural light, but with the sun directly overhead,
they can heat up a room and cause uncomfortable glare.

Privacy is often the first need for our clients, but light and heat control
is a close second. Shades will make the room more livable in extreme heat and
cold, and a skylight is a big culprit in that battle.

Blackout shades can make the difference between a good nights sleep or being woken at dawn. The built-in frame eliminates light bleed.

STYLE TIP ~ Ask us about slumber shades for all your bedroom windows.

The most popular way to cover skylights is with cellular (honeycomb) shades, for these 5 main reasons:
• Lightweight design, easy to open and close fully.
• Small stack at the top or bottom of the window.
• Most energy efficient solution.
• Easy to motorize for ease of use.
• Many color options to match existing shades or complement them.

Measuring for and installing skylight shades is not a easy project for the average homeowner to tackle.

don’t take our word for it

We helped a client recently take back her living room:

My living room has 2 skylights which would make daytime sitting on a sunny day unbearable and watching TV impossible. My new motorized skylight shades have given me back my living room and were more affordable that I had imagined.
