VELUX skylight blinds can help turn an ordinary room into something special, and a variety of colors are available, so you can customize the look in your living space. Our solar powered blinds allow you to control the light and heat that enters a room using only the power of the sun, and they do not require wiring or an electrician to install because they are operated by a remote control keypad. During summer days when temperatures are high and the sun is extra bright, the blinds can be closed to reduce potential solar heat gain, and during winter nights when temperatures are low, the blinds can be closed to provide an extra layer of thermal insulation and keep warm air indoors. Blackout blinds convert day into night, blocking even the brightest sunlight, which makes them perfect for rooms that require total room darkening such as bedrooms or TV/entertainment rooms. They are ideal for afternoon siestas and light summer nights.
