Skylights provide your home with beautiful natural sunlight, creating ambiance and an extra design feature in your home, however, skylights can sometimes let in too much sunlight, causing excessive heat gain in the summer months and drafty air leaks during cold months.
Cellular shades are the most insulating window treatments on the market, making them the best window treatments for skylight shades. Trapping air in between the skylight window and your home, cellular shade’s honeycomb cells are what make them incredible insulators. By blocking and trapping intrusive sunlight at the point of entry, cellular shades will help keep your home cool while also cutting down on energy costs during the warmest months of the year. Cellular shades on your skylight also help prevent air from flowing to the outside in the winter in colder months.
Another benefit of skylight shades is light diffusion, greater light diffusion means you’ll experience less UV damage to your furnishings and floors and less glare on television and computer screens.
Available in a wide variety of colors, you will have no problem blending in your skylight shades with the rest of your décor and window coverings. Further customize your cellular skylight shades by choosing to either softly filter light through the shade or completely blackout your room all together.
