Whether you’re adding a skylight or your home already has one, you know that they can do wonders for bringing natural light into what is often an otherwise darker room. However, in creating another opening in your home, you’re also inviting the potential for outside air to leak in as well as for UV rays to do some damage to your room. At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Jupiter, Florida, we carry the full line of Hunter Douglas window treatments, including some great options for skylights. Read on to learn more!
Features to Consider When Selecting Skylight Window Coverings
Think about these few key principles when you look at skylight options:
- Energy use. Treating a skylight can help you maintain your indoor temperature because it can help insulate the window, keeping the outside air out where it belongs.
- Consider the needs of the space. Different rooms need different levels of light control. In a bedroom, you might want blackout at night while in a kitchen, you might want to have as much natural light as possible.
- Preserving your flooring and furniture. UV rays can wreak havoc on floors, furniture, cabinets, and artwork. Even if you know you want to have as much natural light as possible through your skylight, be sure to use a treatment that will help reduce the damage from UV rays.
- Operating systems. Because they’re by nature in the ceiling, skylights are generally out of easy reach. You’ll want to find the right operating system, so you can control your window treatment’s position the way you want to.
