Room darkening treatments for skylights come in variety of styles
Sep 21 2011
Homeowners need to consider the practical side of having a skylight when they choose window treatments for this source of light.
Room darkening shades are a good choice to control privacy and nighttime lighting with skylights.
"Skylights offer light and visual interest, but they are also difficult to reach, and the light that is welcome during your dinner party might interfere with your ability to see your television a few hours later," according to RafterTales.com. During the day, it's generally nice to have the warmth, but you'll lose more heat at night than you gain during the day."
Room darkening shades offered by Blinds Chalet can address the light management issue. Shades in several styles - roller, roman, bamboo and honeycomb cellular – can be ordered in blackout material, and soft sheer shades are available with a room darkening fabric as well.
RafterTales.com advises consumers to consider how a room is used to determine their choice, as well as the energy savings that will result with a well-chosen skylight covering.
Light control can be adjusted according to how much light is needed for a given activity, and the shades will also limit heat that enters and escapes through the skylight.
