Are There Blinds For Skylights?
Skylight windows are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, Because of this the choices for skylight blinds are becoming more abundant. We have a little outline for each of the styles:
- If you are wanting to keep things simplistic, you could opt for one of our roller skylight blinds, which are a simple yet understated way to change the feel of your interiors. Roller blinds in a skylight are a fantastic way to achieve a blackout in your room.
We offer pleated skylight blinds which are great if you want to control light hitting your room in all the wrong ways, due to the fact you have multi-zone control on our pleated blinds you have the option to move the fabric to where you need it to be to avoid any glare or other intrusions.
- Similar to both of the above-mentioned styles you can go for a duo skylight blind which is the best of both worlds, You get the light filtering and control from a pleated blind, however if you are needing more, you have the option to roll down the blackout roller and get complete darkness whenever you need it.
- Finally and one of the more understated styles is the Venetian style skylight blinds we offer, these are perfect if you want to be able to control your lighting but have something a little contemporary and modern on your windows
The hard part is left to you, deciding which of these blinds would be perfect for creating the room you envision.
How Do I Measure For Skylight Blinds?
For our style of skylight blinds, you’ll need to find a code on the window frame itself. This can be usually found by pulling the window down and open and checking the sides. You should find a code like “GGL-310” somewhere – This indicates your window type. Otherwise, you’ll need to measure the visible glass size and double check that our blinds, frame and all, will for sure fit your window.
What Sort Of Fabric Options Are Available For My Skylight Windows?
Skylight windows can be fitted in a variety of room types, we have plenty of options to suit your bedrooms, living room, office, or even bathroom! Bedrooms and living rooms tend to work best with our blackout loft blinds, whilst for bathrooms you’d be recommended our waterproof loft blinds. We even have loft blinds perfect for your kitchen skylights, with special flame-retardant options available. We’re always adding new options for every scenario and living space.
How Do I Open Skylight Blinds?
All of our skylight blinds operate on a slide to open system, meaning all you need to do is move the bottom bar (or both on a pleated) to get the fabric/slats to the desired position to block out all the unwanted light. If you are installing your blind on a window which is a little out of daily reach, give our friendly customer service team a call, and we can enquire about getting a control rod for you at the best available price.
