Make a design statement

Controlling your environment

Five out of ten consumers want light control on skylights. One out of ten have it. See how easy it is to control the light by adding a skylight blind to your VELUX skylight.

Drama

Not only does natural light create drama, it actually alters the way we feel about living space in a positive way. VELUX skylights can help dramatize any room in your home

Balance

A perfect example is how carefully positioned skylights can help bring harmony to a home. Positioning skylights above windows opens up the space and reduces glare. The room is now functional, flexible and relaxing.

Privacy

Homes are being built closer to one another and the balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy has become an issue. That's why 65% of home buyers request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light is of the utmost importance.

Energy efficiency

The addition of skylight blinds can increase the overall energy efficiency of your skylight by 45%. In the summer, on high heat/sun days, close the skylight blinds to reduce potential solar heat gain. In the winter, on cold nights, close your skylight blinds to provide an extra layer of thermal insulation to keep warm air indoors.

REMEMBER: It's much easier to add a skylight blind to a new skylight purchase with our factory installed option.

Types of skylight blinds

Blackout Skylight Blinds

This double pleated or flat skylight blind can convert day into night, blocking even the brightest sunlight, which makes it ideal for rooms that require total room darkening, such as bedrooms. The skylight blind can be either manually or solar powered and therefore does not require wiring at installation. Simply snap into place and operate with an included keypad remote.

Light Filtering Skylight Blinds

No longer is direct sunlight an issue. The VELUX light filtering skylight blind softens and diffuses the light that will enter your room. Perfect for rooms where diffused light is desired such as kitchens and living rooms. Offers both protection and good looks.

Venetian Skylight Blinds

The venetian skylight blind features make operation simple and convenient, with a control mechanism that allows you to position the skylight blinds at any point on the window. Improved designs give you control over both the amount and direction of light, making it perfect for any room where light control and aesthetics are important.

Special order skylight blinds

Special order skylight blinds are not pre-installed with your skylight order and require a two-week lead time and will ship separately.
