Best Window Treatments for Skylights

In Harry Potter, an enchanted ceiling gives students all the information they need about the conditions outside, whether light or dark, rainy or snowy, clear or foggy. Your skylight is just as magical, providing incredible natural light and a glimpse of the world outside. But there are times when you need a different magic. At Barrington Draperies and Shutters in Barrington, Illinois, we’ll pair you with Hunter Douglas window treatments for skylights that will give you the magic when you want it and something else when you don’t.

Why Get Window Treatments for Skylight Shades?

Skylights are an intriguing aspect of your home. They can let in incredible natural light, which you might only sometimes want. Sometimes, you need:

  • For the room to be dark, say if you’re watching TV.
  • To prevent the sunlight from shining into your eyes
  • UV Protection so the sun doesn’t fade your artwork, flooring, walls, or furniture
  • It to be a little quieter, like during a storm with a terrified 2-year-old

The right window treatments for skylights can provide all of these things. Barrington Draperies and Shutters carries the full range of Hunter Douglas skylight shades. They do their job to prevent your stuff from fading in the harsh sun, getting you the best amount of light for your home throughout the day and even absorbing sound. Hunter Douglas provides the best cellular shade for your skylights: Duette® Cellular Shades.

Duette® Cellular Shades for Skylights Near Barrington, Illinois

Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades come in over 150 color and fabric combinations and go on doors, windows, or skylights. They use multiple layers of fabric that fill with air and act as insulation, keeping heat from escaping through the window, which increases energy savings.

These cellular shades also:

  • Absorb sound.
  • Use fabrics ranging from sheer to opaque.
  • Combine multiple fabrics in the same shade for better light and darkness control.
  • Operate with a manual push-down/pull-up system or motorization.

Automation for Skylight Window Treatments

When you want to adjust your window treatments, an automated system will work best for your skylight shades. You can use a remote or an app to adjust your window treatments. This feature is safer, easier, and less time-consuming than a wand or other tool. You can get Hunter Douglas Powerview® Automation with your Duette® Cellular Shades.

PowerView® Automation lets you use the PowerView® Pebble remote to control your cellular shades or an app on your smartphone. If you have a smart home, PowerView® integrates with your home and can respond to voice commands.
