Skylights are a great way to let natural light into your rooms during the day and give you a beautiful view of the sky at night. Unfortunately, they can also really heat up a room in the summer, which can really increase your air conditioning bill. But there is a good solution to this problem: skylight coverings.
These coverings are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. The latest designs from SHAADS® are easy to install and come in a great variety of colors and styles.
Issues with Skylight Covers
Early skylight covers were not very convenient—in some cases, they were even unsafe, especially for young children. You typically opened and closed them with long poles (which could be hard to attach and work with) or strings (that hang from the ceiling and present a choking hazard). Luckily, there have been some improvements, and skylight covers are now safe and convenient.
SHAADS® are a new type of window covering that are very easy to install, clean, and remove. These coverings come in a large variety of colors and styles that should allow you to match almost any décor.
Benefits of SHAADS®
SHAADS® have many of the benefits of other skylight shades, along with some extras. We will discuss many of these below so you can see if SHAADS® are right for you.
These are very easy to install. In fact, unlike many other skylight covers, you can install these shades yourself with only a screwdriver. All you have to do is screw in a few metal L brackets and you’re done. No measuring, cutting, or anything else; just stick and click.
Choice of Visibility
With SHAADS®, you can choose the amount of light you let in, along with the degree of visibility. There are many transparent fabrics to choose from with several options for opacity, although the standard is 3 percent. Other degrees of clarity can be custom ordered. You can also choose opaque, which doesn’t allow light in or for you to see out. If you want blackout SHAADS®, they can also be custom ordered.
Helps Protect Furniture
SHAADS® can help keep your furniture from fading in the sunlight with their variety of visibility options that all protect from UV light that can damage furniture and other items in your home.
SHAADS® can be removed in just minutes, allowing you to clean or swap them out. This means you can easily change styles or colors, or simply leave the covering off to allow more sun in during the winter.
Styles and Colors
SHAADS® skylight cover designs come in the Simple and Elegant collections, which boast three styles each. Both collections include the easy-install “stick and click” system.
The Simple Collection boasts modern styles that fit with most contemporary décor. This includes Simply White, Pecan Stained, and Walnut Stained frame options. Each of these frames come with a variety of fabric colors, so you can match your home’s décor. This may be called the Simple Collection, but these skylight covers add appeal to any room.
The Elegant Collection contains three real wood frame options and even more fabric options to customize your skylight cover’s appearance. These skylight covers fit in perfectly with nearly any décor, but particularly with wood trim and rustic interior designs. The frame options include Chestnut Oak, Natural Light Oak, and Black Espresso Oak. Any of these options are sure to add a touch of elegance to your home, as the name implies.
A skylight cover is a wonderful way to enjoy the ambient light a skylight provides in a room. Unfortunately, regular skylight covers can be difficult to install and require a variety of tools and measurements. Luckily for everyone, SHAADS® skylight covers allow anyone to install a beautiful skylight cover in only minutes.
