Skylight windows are a dramatic design to bring natural light into your favorite rooms of your home. They can also allow additional heat into your room in the warmest part of the day while the sunlight is shining inside with natural lighting. You can create the ambiance that you choose for day and night and all four seasons of the year with motorized window coverings.
Out With the Old
The old type of skylight coverings enlisted a very long pole to attach to the blinds and turn to open or close them. Other styles in the past were very challenging as they had very long hanging cords that could be dangerous to children and pets as well as adults in your home. Some styles would use the long pole with a hook on the end to drag the shades open and closed as the window coverings were on a roller system. It is easy to see why many people did not want skylight coverings that were so awkward and instead just put up with excessive heat in their home under the skylights along with an increase in heating and cooling costs as well as the bright light fading home furnishings. Replacing faded carpets, furniture and other types of flooring can be a very expensive project.
In With the New
Newer model motorized window coverings are a great solution to all of your lighting needs with skylights. You can enjoy the natural lighting while adjusting the heat level and the view in your room with the push of a button. Motorized skylight coverings are very streamlined so as not to take away from your dramatic lighting choice. They are technologically advance in that you can use them easily and some are even programmable to set times of the day so that they quietly open or close on their own. You actually may not even realize that the shades are moving.
Skylight Covering Choices
You can choose from several different types of motorized blinds. You have several textiles from which to choose, such as classic, Roman shades, sloping shades, flat roller shades, folding shades and even a variety that installs on the exterior of your home.
