How to Choose The Right Skylight Cellular Shade

In addition to being an eye-catching design element in your home, a skylight opens up your living space, allowing natural light in while keeping the elements out. Finding the right shades to cover your skylight can be a puzzling task.  A skylight shade enhances the aesthetic appeal of your skylight, offers privacy & insulation, and allows you to control the amount of natural light coming into the room. Prior to buying your skylight cellular shade, there are a few factors that you should consider.

Balcony Basic Skylights                                 


Balcony Shades

Our balcony skylights are designed specifically for small to medium-sized skylight openings. They maintain a low profile when the skylight is open. These cellular skylight treatments move along a retainer track that features two tension strings that run through the fabric to keep taught in both slanted and horizontal openings. Balcony skylight shades are a versatile window treatment and can mount allowing the fabric to stack that the top and bottom, so it can operate side-to-side. 

Fabric Options:

Both of these cellular skylight treatments are available in light filtering and blackout fabrics. Our daylight shades are only available in double cellular fabrics. If you want something custom which isn’t listed on our website, give us a call and let us work our magic!
