Skylight Shutters

If you're lucky enough to have skylights in your home, you'll already know they are a stunning practical and aesthetic feature, helping to flood a home with natural light.

However, there could be a number of reasons why you need to control the amount of daylight entering a room, including:

o To control glare - In the warmer months, it could just be too bright without some sort of covering
o To prevent fading of the furniture - harsh sunlight can have a bleaching effect on textiles
o To keep a room cool - this could be vital during a hot summer such as 2018, and a skylight can serve as something of a heat trap, but blinds will help control the temperature far more cost-effectively than air conditioning will
o To control light - manage how much light enters the room, whether you want to maximise or minimise it
o In some cases, you may simply want shutters in order to enjoy more privacy

Standard curtains won't always cut it, especially for skylights in loft conversions or extensions. But the good news is that the best skylight shutters can look elegant as well as serving a real practical purpose.

Shutters can be made to suit your home's decor, whatever your style, and be the perfect fit for the window opening. Equally, there's more choice on today's market now than there's ever been before.

Skylight shutters from Shutter World

Our signature shutters from us here at Shutter World include a range of options including models which are ideal for Velux and Fakro-style windows and fit right into the frame and glass. (They also unclip very easily when you want to clean them, offering maximum convenience.)

These made-to-measure models are modern, stylish and control light through the most awkwardly angled window.

Our premium range called Sumatra, fashioned from lightweight white teak, and it's the perfect material for skylight shutters! Designed to fit your particular windows as snugly as a glove, this product is also a highly practical choice as far as skylights are concerned, as well as being great-looking.

The lighter material is especially good for skylight windows, since heavier models could be a lot trickier, not to mention problematic to open at some angles.
