Consumers have a choice of window coverings that are well-suited to skylights, but for the ease of adjusting the amount of sun that enters a room, a motorized window shade or blind can manage both light and window drafts.

According to HomeMakeOverDiva.com, both cellular shades or aluminum mini blinds work well for ceiling windows. "Each will allow you to have control over the amount of light being let in, which in turn help keep the temperature down," states the website.

Motorized shades or blinds can be adjusted either by an electric switch or a remote control. 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. For more visual interest, a window treatment such as a valance can be installed in addition to the shade.

How a room is being used also should determine what window treatment works best to manage light for different activities, RafterTales.com advises.

"The light that is welcome during your dinner party might interfere with your ability to see your television a few hours later," according to the website.
