A Guide to Velux Windows and Velux Window Blinds
Velux windows, or skylights as they’re also known, are commonly found in loft conversions or above a landing. While they’re incredibly beneficial for flooding a top floor room with natural light, it can be difficult to know who to dress these unique windows to add an element of privacy and light control. Boyd’s Blinds are here to guide you through exactly what Velux windows are and the blinds that will perfectly dress them.
What are Velux windows?
These are windows that are generally angled to fit comfortably into a sloping roof. They’re designed to let in copious amounts of natural light, whilst giving you the ability to effortlessly look up into the night sky. The glazing of Velux windows retains the heat from the sun, which can help to keep heating costs down. The impressive insulation also helps to reduce outside noise levels. Velux windows can also handle the weight of snow and ice in colder conditions, keeping the occupants of the top floor room warm and safe.
What accessories are available for Velux windows?
There are flashings and fixings that have been specifically made for their window products and for a variety of different styles. Blinds and shutters can also be fitted to Velux windows, together with poles, adapters and special maintenance kits. With the advancements in technology, you could even add smart home features, including top-of-the-range security fittings.
Velux blinds are perfect for dressing skylights and roof windows. Available in a range of different styles, materials and colours, they’re perfect for adding an element of unique style to a top floor room. Here are just a few styles that are available in a Velux option.
Blackout blinds are ideal for reducing glare and maximising privacy. Using a specific type of lining material, we can produce a set of blackout blinds that can be fitted with expert skill and precision, ensuring all gaps are filled. Available in a wide range of styles, colours and materials, our blackout blinds would make the perfect addition to any top floor room.
Roller blinds are generally easy to operate and are available in many different colours and designs. As well as being stylish and contemporary, roller blinds are also highly functional and practical, protecting rooms from draughts, excessive heat and cold weather conditions. As a result, a set of our high quality roller blinds would be perfect for dressing any Velux window.
Pleated blinds are both modern and minimalist. Their easy operation and highly unique aesthetic would make them a beautiful addition to any loft conversion/attic room.

Add an element of luxury to your top floor room with a set of Venetian blinds. Available in many colours and materials, these would be ideal for a skylight window.
