Skylight Shades & Blinds
- Cellular shades popular for their superior insulation
- Avoid common unwanted heat loss and gain
- Special tracks allow all angles of window coverage
- Protect your interior from UV damage
- Enjoy the light above while maintaining temp control
- Why choose a single or double cell?
The insulating properties of skylight shades make them extremely efficient at reducing the considerable heat transfer that can occur through skylights, and light filtering and blackout options allow for custom light control. Supportive sidetracks allow the shades to be installed at any angle and retain their tension. Skylight blinds may be operated manually by hand or with an extension pole, or be motorized for the ultimate convenience.
Skylight Window Coverings FAQ
Our skylight cellular shades are highly recommended for skylight windows due to their insulating and light-filtering properties. These shades are installed using a supportive sidetrack to keep your shade in place, helping it retain tension. Blindsgalore also recommends including motorization for especially hard to reach windows.
Because skylights are usually angled, skylight cellular shades are installed using a special track on the edges of your window. These tracks will allow your shade to be installed at any angle and ensure it stays in place. Adding motorization will give you the option to control these shades remotely or even link them to your smart home. You can also operate these shades using an extension pole, which you can include while customizing.
Blinds are an unusual option for skylights as they are not designed to be installed at an angle. We recommend skylight cell shades, as they are made specifically for these windows. Cell shades also offer superior light filtering or blackout features when compared to traditional blinds. Unfortunately, we do not offer any window blind options for skylights.
Unfortunately, we do not offer any shutter options for skylights. Instead, we recommend skylight cell shades for these tricky, hard-to-reach windows. Shutters may swing open dangerously and prove hard to operate if installed on a skylight, while our specialty cellular shades will stay perfectly in place.

"Great fitting blinds"
By from Idaho
We ordered two skylight black out blinds from Blindsgalore and are very pleased with their fit and appearance. They do a great job blocking the light and were easy to install. It takes a bit of time to get the order but it was well worth the wait.View this product

These shades transformed our living room. We have skylights which are great when you want light but difficult when you do not. The room is in the center of the home with no windows so it makes sense - but was still difficult on hot summer sunny days. These blinds have not only provide excellent shade but reduced the heat in our living room considerably. We default to closed and open them to get in some light as needed. We love them and wish we had done this sooner. Easy to install (first one took longer to learn and figure out but second one was super easy and fast).View this product
