Custom Skylight Shades for Homes near Princeton, New Jersey (NJ) including Duette Honeycomb Shades

Duette® Honeycomb Shades with SkyLift™

Your solution for controlling light from your skylights is the Duette® Honeycomb Shades with the clever SkyLift™ operating system. These custom shades are about the most versatile style of shades you’ll find and you can add them to windows of almost any shape and size. This includes adding stylish skylight shades to the hardest windows in your home to reach. You can control your skylight shades manually with a pole and crank mechanism or through remote operation with the PowerView® Automation operating system. Adding this clever solution to your skylights offers plenty of advantages for any room in your home with skylights.

Better Light Control

Obviously, you chose to move into a home with skylights for a reason. Having the extra natural light entering your home from the ceilings is a fantastic way to make the most of your decor while relying a bit less on artificial lighting to illuminate your home.

But the downside is that you may not always be a fan of direct sunlight entering your home, especially during the height of the summer. Plus, you may want some added UV protection for your wood floors.

Better Energy Savings

While the Duette® Honeycomb Shades are great custom shades to choose for modern, cozy style, they were invented to help homeowners use less energy. Much of the energy loss people experience throughout the year is due to heat passing through their windows since they don’t insulation like the rest of your walls.

But when you add skylight shades to your home, the heat that rises to the ceiling will keep circulating in each room rather than escaping through your windows, making your home eco-friendlier.

PowerView® Automation

Both iterations of the SkyLift™ system are fantastic options for enjoying stylish shades on your skylights, but the best way to use the system is with PowerView® Automation. You can really make the most out of the convenience factor of having shades on your skylights with this system, with the ability to control your skylight shades from your phone or with your voice. If you want to schedule your skylight shades to open and close at optimal times for energy-efficiency, you can simply use the convenient scheduling feature. With motorized skylight shades, you’ll have control over every bit of light in your home.
