When adding a skylight to your home, this is a beautiful feature that can make any home shine. Skylights are an elegant solution to bring more natural light into an otherwise dark room. While you might enjoy using your skylight to sit in the sunlight, there are certain times when you may want to filter the light a bit more and have control of the heat that comes through.

Purchasing skylight blinds can be an excellent solution, so we’ve compiled the five best reasons to consider skylight blinds for your home. 

Below are the five best reasons to consider skylight blinds for your home. 

1. Prevents the Fading of Furniture

One of the most significant benefits of adding electric skylight blinds to your home is that they can help prevent your furniture from fading and preserve its condition. We understand that, as a homeowner, you take pride in your home items. When a room transmits harsh sunlight, it can create a bleaching effect that can fade the color of your lampshades, photographs, or sofa.

By purchasing electric skylight blinds, you can block the direct sunlight from damaging your furniture, keeping them in their original and pristine condition. 

2. Easy to Operate

With electric skylight blinds, you won’t need to worry about the frustration and stress of operating blinds, especially if the blinds are significantly larger. Homeowners commonly use our motorised skylight blinds, which are budget-friendly and easy to use.

At SONA, we combine innovation and style with our electric blind system to create a perfect option for skylight windows. Our skylight blinds are easy to operate, with a remote control system and easy installation. While using the smart hub system is possible with our Apex blinds, you can also use solar power options.

Using our handset, wall switch, or mobile app, you can operate your skylight blinds in groups or individually, making them ideal for any room in your home.

Skylight blinds from SONA  can use our battery power without the stress of dealing with wires or mains cabling. Using a plug-in charger, you can recharge the lithium pack battery when it’s low on power.

Not only are our skylight blinds easy to operate, but they’re convenient, too! 

3. Aesthetically Pleasing

Regarding skylight blinds, there are various choices on the market to choose from in terms of aesthetic design. Find blinds on the market that are attractive, practical, and match your interior design.

Our SonaSky automated blinds combine style, high-quality fabric, and beauty. This beautiful cellular blind is a one-of-kind hand-finished skylight blind made directly in our UK factory.

With SonaSky-roof lantern blinds, we use a honeycomb fabric that allows us to offer various sizes and shapes to meet your chosen specifications.

Skylight blinds are not only functional, but they can transform almost any space, contributing to its overall design. Whether you prefer a minimalist or modern appearance or soft ambiance, you can choose the perfect skylight blinds that complement your design scheme.

Skylight blinds create an opportunity to make a harmonious and cohesive design, ensuring that any skylight in your home becomes the focal point, flowing seamlessly with your home’s decor. 

4. Temperature Control

When adding electric skylight blinds to your home this not only brings in added sunlight to your space, but extra heat too! During the summer, you’ll quickly notice that more oversized skylights can create a heat trap without proper blinds. To prevent the temperature in your home from becoming uncomfortable, you can close the skylight blinds to block most of the heat from entering your home.

With SonaSky skylight blinds, you can gain control over the light that enters your home. With the hexagonal structure of our motorised skylight blind, you’ll receive an “air pocket” effect to minimize the thermal transfer of heat from your skylight window. Our skylight blinds offer blackout fabrics to increase insulation.

In addition, during the colder months, you can open your skylight blinds to allow more sunlight in an area to warm the space. This contributes to solar heating, minimizing the need for alternative heating sources. By controlling the amount of sun that enters your room, skylight blinds are a great way to regulate temperatures, ensuring maximum comfort all year. 

5. Light Control

One of the main reasons for purchasing skylight blinds for your home is so you can directly manage the light that enters your room. Whether your main goal is to block direct sunlight, bask in the summer light, or prevent the light from escaping out during those colder winter months, our motorised skylight blind is designed to do precisely just that.

Skylight blinds are considered a practical choice for windows to filter light and provide added comfort to your home.

With our SonaSky rooflight automated blinds, you’ll have easy control over the light that enters your home. Our skylight blinds not only control light but they offer acoustic properties to create noise reduction. With our honeycomb design, you can minimize the sound entering your skylight window.
