Versatile Skylight Solar Shades for Bay Area Homes  

Our Experts Explain the Benefits of Skylight Shades

Rudolph’s Interiors is here to help you make the most of your skylights while maximizing the comfort of your home. Skylight shades are used to cover the skylight windows in your home to control light and heat gain. They can be motorized, which is convenient since most skylights are in hard-to-reach areas of the home. This allows for easy movement powered by a battery or electrical wiring. You can also opt for manual shades, which require the use of a pole. Skylight shades are available in a variety of materials, allowing you to be versatile in layout and design.

Find the Perfect Skylight Shades for Your Home

A room that has a skylight in it is often the focal point of a home. Whether it’s a living room or kitchen, it’s important to be able to control the light getting through the skylight window. Depending on where the sun is during the day, having excessive light getting through the skylight can be bothersome and eventually cause wear and tear on your furnishings over time through harmful UV rays. Like all standard windows, harsh summer rays often stream in through skylights and can overheat a space. They can also let cold air in during winter. Additionally, the glare caused by skylights can be inconvenient in rooms where family members watch TV. Some of the most beneficial features of the skylight shades we offer include:

  • Motorized Options – Motorized skylight shades are great because most skylights are in hard-to-reach areas in your home. Having the convenience of adjusting your shades throughout the day with the touch of a button is a game-changer for window treatments in your home.
  • Fabric & Opacity – We have several different fabric types to choose from when selecting your skylight shades. The color of fabric used can also influence the amount of heat that comes through the window since lighter fabrics reflect more light compared to darker ones. Depending on what level of light control you want to have for the room, you can choose from various opacities that range from total light blocking to a larger scale of openness, which will simply filter light to make it less intense. Similar to the degree of light that is allowed in, the level of heat protection from skylight shades also depends on the openness of the weave (the skylight shade opacity percentage).
  • Cordless Lift – This popular option for our skylight shades uses a hidden control system to eliminate the need to lift a cord and enables them to be easily raised or lowered with the touch of a button.

Get Maximum Energy Efficiency With Our Skylight Shades

Because skylight shades provide insulation and block harsh light, they can maximize the energy efficiency of your home. Up to 30 percent of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows, so it’s important to be able to control the amount of light and heat getting inside. In the winter, the skylight shades will help block cooler air from getting into your home. Investing in skylight blinds or shades will help you save on energy costs in the long run.
