How to Block Skylight Windows

How to Block Skylight Windows

Skylights are wonderful features in many homes. However, sometimes their placement isn’t ideal. If you’ve moved into a home with skylights, you might be wondering what on earth the builders were thinking, installing a skylight right over the master bed. Tired of waking up to blinding light in your face? Ready to be rid of the noontime sunlight that makes your kitchen unusable? Domir Blinds has the easy solution for those who want to block skylight windows.

Avoid Costly Renovations

If you’re desperate to be rid of a skylight, you might be tempted to have it removed or sealed off. However, both of these modifications can cost a lot of money. Removal of a skylight means renovating part of the roof, adding drywall, and so on. Even just blocking off a skylight with drywall and spackle can be pricy. Not to mention, if not done properly, this covering can be dangerous, as it’s possible for it to come loose and fall. 

Block Skylight Windows with Skylight Blinds

Instead, get special skylight blinds. Skylight blinds are specifically made to cover skylights. By implementing side channels, your skylight covering will remain horizontal, simply sliding along the channels to open or close. Keep your skylight covered permanently, or simply close it off during the brightest hours of the day. 

This temporary and adaptable solution to block skylight windows is great for those who enjoy their skylight at many points of the day. For example, if you have a kitchen skylight that hurts your eyes when making lunch but provides helpful illumination while making breakfast, there’s no reason not to leave it uncovered until noon. The question then becomes, how do you open and close blinds on the ceiling?

Motorize Them for Reversible Blockage

The answer is simple! Motorized blinds are more accessible than ever with the use of smart phones. The motor is located in the fascia – the part where the shade or screen rolls up. You can use your phone to control the blinds from safely on the ground. This makes your skylight as accessible as any other window in your home.
