How do you cover a skylight window?

Skylight windows are a great to have in your home as they bring in light whilst being an attractive feature. However, as they are often out of reach, finding ways and solutions to cover them can be a bit difficult.
We’ve made it simpler as we have a whole range of skylight blinds and coverings that you can choose from, which offer style, savings and practicality.

Where do you need skylight blinds?

Skylights can be in many different rooms of the home. Like many of our blinds, we have specific ranges designed to cater towards a variety of needs, depending on the room you are looking to fit them in.


As bedrooms are a place for peace, tranquility and a good night's sleep, our blackout skylight blinds are ideal for bedrooms with a skylight. This range is designed to block light from coming through the fabric and will reduce light streaming into a space, making them the go-to fabric for master bedrooms, guest bedrooms, children’s bedrooms and nurseries.

Our moisture-resistant fabrics are designed to not hold on to any moisture, which will allow the blinds to maintain its colour and finish for longer. These blinds are perfect for bathrooms and en-suites, offering both privacy and practicality.

Living Spaces

If you have a living space which features a skylight, why not opt for our light filtering or thermal energy saving fabrics? Whilst providing shade and protection, these blinds allow you to choose when to let light through and when you’d prefer a more cosy environment. Our thermal energy saving fabrics also have the added benefit of keeping the heat in, making your home warmer and more energy efficient.
