Adding Shades to Accent Windows

If you’re wanting complete control over the natural light in your home, then it’s time to start looking for custom shades you can add to windows you normally can’t reach, such as arched windows skylights. And the perfect shade style to explore for these windows is Duette® Honeycomb Shades. This versatile collection of energy-efficient shades fits into any style of window, even obscure shapes like octagons and trapezoids. You can also install them into windows that are often out of reach, including arched windows and skylights.

SkyLift™ Skylight System

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are compatible with the clever SkyLift™ Skylight system, which allows your shades to effectively operate on any skylight in your home. The simple shape and cord system of these cellular shades makes them perfect for suspending your skylights and the SkyLift™ Skylight system keeps them tightly pressed up against your windows to maintain their chic appearance. Cellular shades also fold up tightly to give you as much light as possible when they’re open, which also helps make them ideal for skylights.

Of course, adding cellular shades to your skylights adds the benefit of better energy efficiency. Beyond the fact that they’ll provide plenty of shade on the hottest days, they’ll also keep the cool air inside. And when the temperatures cool down during the winter, you can close your skylight shades at night to prevent the heat from rising and escaping through your skylights.

Overall, including skylight shades in your home gives you more control over how your home feels, allowing you to enjoy a more complete sense of ownership. In addition to operating your skylight shades using a smooth crank system or a lightweight pole, you can also choose the PowerView® Automation operating system.
