Skylight Shades

admin Latest News, Purchasing Blinds in Colorado Leave a comment   , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

At Colorado Blinds & Design, we receive a fair amount of inquiries about covering skylights. Sure, skylights can open your space up to beautiful views IF your home is correctly orientated to the sun. If your home has east or west facing skylights, then you know how uncomfortable you can be in a space that is filled with intense sun and heat.

Hunter Douglas’s Simplicity™ skylight system, available on Duette® and Applause® honeycomb shades, is a manual lifting system ideal for skylights.

Basically, a rectangular honeycomb shade is installed into a frame that holds the shade into place. The system allows the user to operate the shade like a regular cordless shade. The honeycomb design blocks 99% of harmful rays while reducing heat loss and gain through the window.

Call or stop by with any questions you have regarding skylight shades!

Congrats, Tom!!

Applause Specialty Shapes

Check out this specialty shaped Hunter Douglas® Applause shade that we just did for one of our favorite clients! They had a bare east facing window in their bathroom, and the intense sun made it feel like a greenhouse! We installed this operable specialty shape for them and instantly cut out 99% of UV rays and 40% of the heat. They couldn’t be more thrilled with the result.

If you are in need of a specialty shade, give us a call to come take a look at it and discuss options with you. As always, it is FREE for us to come out, so give us a call and schedule your appointment today!
