Skylight shades are designed to cover your skylights and regulate your home’s cooling, heating, and lighting, whether fully closed, fully open, or any position in between! While the installation is different and more complex than regular windows, there are several designs: from a simplest Roman shade to an energy-efficient honeycomb design, or to a completely adjustable motorized treatment. Toronto Window Treatments can fabricate, design, and install a variety of skylight shades in your home. Skylight shades are available in manual or motorized options, and installed by our on-staff electricians.
Motorized skylight shades take all the work out of controlling the amount of light that comes into your living space or office. No longer will you have to reach up to the roof multiple times a day to open or block out sunlight when you need to. You have total control with the touch of a button from anywhere in the room.
Roller skylight shades
Retractable skylight shades are a convenient way to affordably control the amount of sunlight that comes into your office or living space. Roller shades are designed to decrease friction when sliding, providing for an effortless transition from day to nighttime.
Roller shades are available for skylights in sheer, semi-sheer, and opaque fabrics. Motorization is a convenient way to open and close your shades at different times of the day. Roller shades are installed on a track and will roll and store smoothly. Try sheer shades to protect furniture from UV rays without compromising on daylight views, or try opaque fabrics to block out light completely.
Roman shades are a particularly popular and stylish skylight solution from the past decade. These shades consist of a single piece of fabric divided into symmetrical horizontal pleats that fit neatly together as they are raised or lowered. For skylight windows, Roman shades are often the most cost-effective to install in your home. Elegant and sophisticated, they are a classic option for controlling the amount of light that enters a room. Available in a variety of styles, colours, fabrics, and patterns, Roman shades are as versatile as they are straightforward.
The Honeycomb design is a revolution in energy efficiency, making them a great option for skylight shades. The hexagon-shaped cells trap a layer of air between the fabric of the shade, insulating your home against heat and cold and significantly reducing energy loss on your windows. For skylight shades, the effect of this is particularly clear: the honeycomb design also blocks over 88% of the UV rays while diffusing natural light throughout the room. With crisp pleats on both the front and back, the shade when open, will blend beautifully with your ceiling making your home creating a clean look inside and out.
