Controlling Sun through Skylights Year Round

Q: Over the summer I had someone install four skylights in my home and, while I love the natural light, I was hoping to find a way to control incoming sun. Is there a good skylight shade (preferably something attractive) that can help control the light and heat?

A: Yes! Cellular shades are perfect for skylights! They come in a wide range of colors and opacities to fit all kinds of homes. Light filtering cellular shades diffuse direct sunlight, giving you the pleasure of natural light without the harsh glare. And room darkening options allow you to completely block incoming light.

As for attractiveness, cellular shades continue to be one of the most popular styles of shades and blinds for both home and office. The sleek, simple design and color variety help make these a versatile option for any homeowner. And, since cellular shades trap air between the window and your room, they also help insulate your home against overheating in the summer and loss of heat in the winter.

And don't forget the convenience of motorized controls in skylights! While manual options are available, many homeowners choose to operate their cellular skylight shades with a push of a button. The perfect choice year round!
