Which Skylight Window Blind is Right for You?

Skylight blinds can suit many purposes, from insulating your home to blocking out sunlight. To help you purchase a blind that’s right for your home, we’ve put together a brief list of four different types of blinds and how they are used:

Blackout Blinds

Blackout blinds are great for blocking out unwanted external light sources, whether it’s the sun shining on your computer screen or the street lamps outside keeping you up at night. Our blackout blinds come with brush seals that successfully block out any cracks of light, meaning wherever you are in your home, whether it’s the office of your bedroom, you will be treated to a total blackout experience.

Waterproof Blinds

If you have a skylight window in either your bathroom or your kitchen, you will want to consider getting a waterproof blind made of impermeable fabric. Having a waterproof blind in these areas of your home will help to protect them from damp or mould, both of which are common in rooms that experience moisture. Waterproof fabric is also very easy to clean, so whether you’ve accidentally sprayed it with shampoo or unintentionally infused it with the scent of a homemade dish, you can give your blind a wipe to get rid of any dirt or scents.

Motorised Blinds

Motorised blinds are ideal for skylight windows that are difficult to work by hand due to their height. Being operated through a remote control enables these blinds to be activated from up to 35 metres away, meaning homeowners do not have to strain themselves to open or close their skylight window. Additionally, our motorised blinds are solar powered, meaning you’ll never have to wait for your blind to re-charge to be used as it will receive constant top ups every day from the sun!

Thermal Blinds

If you have a room with a skylight window that is particularly cold, a thermal blind could help it conserve heat. Keeping your warm, especially in the winter, is important. As such, not only will our skylight blinds made from thermal material help to better insulate your home, but in the long term, they will also help you save money and reduce your energy usage consumption.
