Window treatments are important for any window in the home, whether it’s a regular shape, a specialty shape, or a skylight. Window treatments play an important role in controlling light, insulating, and protecting from harmful UV rays. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we have some great options for all kinds of windows. Read on to learn more about the best treatments for skylights, and be sure to speak with one of our consultants to see these products in person.
As a piece of architectural interest, skylights can add a great deal to a room. A skylight can be a focal point, bring in lots of natural light, and add dimension to the space. And when you add the right window treatment, you can enjoy the benefits of your skylight while reducing glaring light, heat gain or loss, and harmful UV rays. Simply think of these things as you consider your options.
- Light control. Choose the right level of light control based on the needs of the room. In a bedroom, you might want room-darkening or blackout features. In a kitchen, sunroom, or dining room, natural light might play a key role, so you might choose more of a light-diffusing solution.
- Energy. It’s not fun to lose your heating or cooling bills to the outside air. Adding the right treatment on your skylight can help insulate the window, keeping the outside temperatures outside.
- Protect flooring and furniture. UV rays can damage floors, furniture, and artwork. Treatments that let you have lots of natural light can still help protect against harmful UV rays.
- Operating system. Being in the ceiling, skylights are, of course, generally out of easy reach. That’s why you’ll want a convenient operating system.

Hunter Douglas has solutions for all of your skylight needs. If insulating your window is the most important aspect, consider cellular shades such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades. To protect your interior while still getting natural light, check out Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds or Vertical Solutions® Vertical Blinds, which each offer 75% UV ray protection. Finally, Hunter Douglas offers several convenient operating systems for skylights, including the Skylift™ or Simplicity™ system (which operate manually) or PowerView® Motorization (which lets you operate your treatment remotely, even if you’re not at home).
