Skylights are a great way to bring brightness and spaciousness into your home in a way that’s hard to achieve with standard windows. Unfortunately, they’re not without their own drawbacks. Common problems like harsh summer rays, unwanted heat, and glare can make your skylight canopy an unpleasant experience at certain times.

That’s where our skylight shades can help. With sufficient light filtering and temperate control, you can get back to enjoying the views of your skylights, without any of the downsides. And with a wide range of product options designed specifically for all different types, sizes and shapes of skylights, you’re sure to find the perfect option for you!

Benefits Of Skylight Shades

Center aligned design elementLeft aligned design element
UV Protection

Skylight shades are a great way to keep your home cool in the summer and protect your furniture from the sun's harsh UV rays. Our shades block up to 75% of the sun's UV radiation, ensuring that your furniture will look new for years to come.

Temperature Control

Looking for a way to keep your home comfortable all year round? Our skylight shades can block out unwanted heat, making them the perfect choice for summertime cooling. And with honeycomb shades—which insulate your home by trapping air in small pockets—it will provide wintertime warmth as well.

Light Control

Skylight shades are one of the best ways to regulate natural light. With room darkening or blackout fabric options, you can make the most of your skylights without letting unwanted light interrupt your sleep or adding glare to your TV screen.

We provide a wide variety of skylight shade product options to choose from, so that homeowners can pick what works best for them. Learn more about each of our custom skylight shading solutions below. 

Hunter Douglas Duette Skylift Shades

Featuring deluxe honeycomb shades that self-insulate, Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the perfect option for those who want to insulate their homes in the winter, or make their home energy-efficient all year. Available in an array of colors, textures and pleat sizes, they can accommodate the specialty shape of a skylight.

Lutron Tensioned Shade for Skylights

Lutron's innovative tensioned shades are the ideal solution for skylights and angled windows. The unique design keeps fabric panels taut and parallel to windows, with minimal sag at any slope. This reduces light gaps around fabric, and maximizes the view when opened. 

The Stobag Ventosol Shade System

Ideal for skylights and glass openings that feature beautiful architectural designs, the Stobag Ventosol Shade System is a top-of-the-line skylight shading solution. Able to be configured as a motorized interior or an exterior sun control solution, it features multiple openness options that allow you to maintain the view that you desire while blocking solar heat gain. 

The Skylight 2 Flexshade from Draper

Large, open spaces can be both awe-inspiring and daunting. A wall of windows overlooking a cityscape or wilderness can be breathtaking, but also leaves you feeling exposed to the sun's heat and glare. With Skylight 2 FlexShade®, you can motorize the shades on your large skylight, reducing the amount of solar heat gain and controlling glare, so that you comfortably enjoy the view. Recommended for commercial spaces, where a very large skylight shade is more often needed.

Maria N.

“Let me start by saying I was referred to Hartley by another vendor who couldn’t offer what I needed to fit a quite awkward space. I was extremely pleased with Hartley - not just the quality of products offered and the service, but just as important, their creativity in meeting my needs and budget. Also, their installers were very professional and neat about cleanup. Would certainly recommend them!”

Curtis M.

“My wife & I had the entire Hartley crew come to our newly rebuilt home in Coffee Park. They installed motorized blinds for ALL the windows and installed a beautiful motorized awning shade for our back patio since it faces west… Can’t say enough great things about this company! If you need blinds or especially an outdoor awning to shade your patio, these are the folks to have to do it! Professional, responsible, clean, and they communicate very well with your needs and keep you up to date on the progress. It helped to make our new house a real home.”

M. P.

“After using Hartley Window Coverings through this past year I would not go elsewhere! Their people and responses to any questions at all times are truly refreshing! Julie the sales rep went the extra mile and Mike the owner is incredibly sensitive to the customer's needs. The guys who installed were great as well and tidy. Can’t say enough about their service procedures. Give them a call for any type of window coverings inside or out!”

Jennifer T.

"From the moment I contacted Hartley Window Coverings I was treated with the best customer service. From the sales staff, Rachel is so knowledgeable and helpful, to the installers, who were respectful of my time and my home. I felt like I was their top priority and it has been the best experience of all the home contractors I have dealt with in the last 18 months. Love my new shades!"

Ro B.

"We were very happy doing business with Hartley Window Coverings- Sasha came over for the initial consult and was very professional. The installers were friendly, considerate, and knowledgeable. We highly recommend Hartley and would be happy to work with them again."

David A.

"We recently used Hartley Window Coverings for new window treatments in our great room and new vertical blinds in the kitchen dining area. Rachel was so helpful in guiding us through the process. When it came time for the installation Gabe, Jesus, and Chris were very neat and careful with our hardwood and tile floors... Rachel was always there when the installation was finished to make sure that we were pleased with the results. The level of customer service from everyone at Hartley is 5 star."

Corinne R.

"Working with Maygen was delightful. During our rebuild, she came to our new home multiple times to go over the options available to us. When we finally moved in, she was on hand to help with refining our selections and getting everything installed as soon as possible... I wish all of the vendors we worked with offered the service that Hartley does. There was never any finger-pointing or discussion about any of the little issues that arose. We are extremely satisfied with the products and service provided by Hartley."

Judi H.

“I love my Lutron Palladium shades. They shade my stairwell and living room from southern and western sun glare. The remote controls are easy to use and never give me any trouble. Hartley Window Coverings is the BEST!!”

Dustin D.

“We worked with Ann at Hartley Window Coverings on a high-end whole house remodel with an articulate and particular client. Ann navigated the selection process and was able to meet the client’s requirements professionally while communicating changes with us so we could complete the appropriate paperwork on our end. The installation of the final product was also amazing. It was an exposed application, so everything had to be perfect. The job came out perfectly, the client was happy, and we were happy. We greatly appreciate Hartley Window’s partnership.”

Noel B.

"If Hartley Window Coverings has what you are looking for, then no need to look any further. The service from start to finish was outstanding. The shutters we selected have transformed the look and feel of our home."

Frequently Asked Questions

Left aligned design elementCenter aligned design element
What are the best options for skylight shades?

There really is no ‘best’ option. Each of our skylight shading products can be customized to meet your unique needs. Whether it’s to block light, control temperature, or reduce glare (or all three) there are plenty of ways to find the perfect option for you.

Are skylight covers the best way to cover a skylight from the inside?

Yes! As opposed to motorized blinds, shades, and curtains, skylight covers can be custom fitted to your skylight and provide a more permanent solution to shading your skylight from the inside. Moreover, our’s come in a variety of materials, styles, and sizes, allowing you to customize them to match the appearance of your home.

Are there energy-efficient options?

Yes. Our Duette® Honeycomb Shades feature a unique cellular design that traps air in pockets to insulate your windows. This keeps the temperature more consistent inside your home by reducing energy loss, making your home more energy efficient.

What’s more, Duette® Honeycomb Shades are available in an array of colors, textures and pleat sizes, and can accommodate the specialty shape of a skylight.

How can I operate my skylight shades?

Our skylight shades can be controlled manually—via a hand crank or telescoping pole—or can come fully motorized, allowing you to adjust your shades at the touch of the button. Home automation options are also available. 

Do you offer extra large skylight shades?

Yes! In fact, we offer skylight window coverings in a wide range of sizes and styles, from small to large, to suit any size and shape of skylight.

What are the best ways to cover skylight windows in loft rooms?

If you have operable skylights or roof windows in a loft, we recommend you use cellular shades or roller shades. These types of window coverings will provide privacy and light control, and can be installed with and without motorization options. On the other hand, our interior skylight covers are a perfect match for ceiling and roof-mounted skylights, which are typically designed to be installed overhead.
