4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Skylight Blinds

If you’re lucky enough to have a skylight in your property, you’ll no doubt be well aware of the benefits of such a window; the morning light streaming in and the sound of rain hitting the window whilst you’re cosy indoors. While a skylight is a luxury to be enjoyed, you should also consider installing a blind to provide a little extra privacy. In this article, we’ll look at the key reasons for buying skylight blinds.


Control the light

That ‘morning light streaming in’ benefit we mentioned: it is, no doubt, a wonderful feeling to see it, but it’s only wonderful if you’re not trying to have a lie in. A skylight blind will allow you to block out the morning sun on the days where you fancy a bit more sleep, or let a sliver of sunshine in if you’d like the room to be illuminated just a little bit.  Also, if you’re not a fan of seeing the rain on your windows and the grey clouds overhead, you can simply block them out. Controlling the light also means that you can prevent furniture being faded through prolonged exposure.


Temperature control

Again, this is a caveat to skylights allowing light to flood into a room: too much light coming into a room can turn it into a heat-trap, particularly if the window is unopened for hours on end. With a blind, you can block the sunlight out when you please – this is particularly useful if you’re heading out, as you won’t have to return to a boiling hot space. 


Use with ease

Skylights, for all their benefits, are in something of  an awkward location, particularly for opening and closing them. However, electric skylight blinds remove the need to stand on your tiptoes and stretch to your window; at the touch of a button, you can open or close your blinds – it couldn’t be simpler. 


They look great

Aside from the practical benefits of a skylight blind, there’s a key superficial one; they look superb. With such a huge range of skylight blinds available from major brands like Velux, you can be sure there’s a colour to perfectly complement your interior design.
