What to Consider When Purchasing a Skylight Blind

Skylight window blinds are a sophisticated and stylish addition to any room, whether it be a bedroom, lounge or office. However, as with any household purchase, it can sometimes be difficult for buyers to decide what type of blind will look best in their home. To help you out, we’ve outlined below some of the most important things to consider when purchasing a blind for a skylight window:


For many buyers, cost is probably the most important aspect of purchasing any product and will ultimately influence the rest of the buying process. Consequently, the type of blind you buy will depend firstly, on how much you are willing to spend, and secondly, what you will be using the blind for, e.g. to black out the room. Additionally, if you’ll need to have your blind installed, this is another expense that will need to be factored into the overall cost of your purchase (unless you can do this yourself). Here at Skylight Blinds Direct, we offer a large variety of blinds at a range of price points, meaning whatever your budget, we’re sure to find a skylight blind to suit you.


Another aspect to consider when buying a skylight window blind is what the purpose of your blind will be. For example, if you have a room that often gets cold, a blind made of thermal fabric can provide better insulation, helping to keep the room warmer with minimal impact. Similarly, if unwanted sunlight in a particular room is often a problem for you, a blackout blind will provide shade and heat protection, creating a less dazzling environment and enabling you to control the amount of sunlight you get into the room. Finally, if you have a hard to reach window, a motorised blind will enable you to operate the blind from below, meaning that reaching the blind to open and close it will no longer be a problem!


The colour of your blind can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of a room, so this is something that is important to consider. For instance, if you’re choosing a blind for a room with a neutral colour scheme, you’ll probably want to avoid bright or garish colours that could spoil the relaxing atmosphere. However, if your skylight blind will be placed in a more colourful room, you could go for a more vibrant shade to match. Brighter blinds can look great in a variety of rooms such as children’s bedrooms and kitchens, whereas subtler colours tend to work best in more relaxing areas of the home like lounges and bathrooms. Of course, this choice is all down to your own personal preference, so always pick a colour that works for you!


As previously mentioned, the installation of your skylight blind is also something to think about when purchasing it. Not only should the installation fees be considered, but the impact of this process on your home should also be taken into account. If your blind is going to be installed in a busy area of your home such as the kitchen, you may want to make alternative arrangements for meal times etc. Similarly, a skylight blind being installed in your bathroom will certainly have an impact, so this should definitely be considered prior to installation.


Picking a skylight blind to can be a stressful process, but it doesn’t have to be.
