Create Total Darkness

To help you get the most out of your roof window, we sell a range of blinds. By far, the most popular are the blackout blinds - and for good reason. Read on to find out why or browse your roof window manufacturer's blinds:

1. Block Out Daylight & Street Lights

At night, stop street lights and moonlight disturbing your sleep; during the day, block out the daylight to enjoy an afternoon nap or a TV programme without the glare of the sun.

2. Maintain your Room's Temperature

Blackout blinds not only darken your room, they help maintain the environment of your living space by reducing heat loss in the winter months and controlling solar gain during the summer.

3. More Privacy

Be safe in the knowledge no-one will see you dancing around your room or deciding which outfit to wear for your night out. A blackout blind will let you be you in the comfort of your own home.

4. A Design for Every Room

There is a blind colour or pattern to complement every décor. You even have the choice of manual, electric and solar powered blinds (depending upon the brand). VELUX Duo combines blackout and pleated blinds for a stylish, flexible and energy efficient blind.

5. Quick & Easy to Fit

VELUX, Roto and FAKRO not only design their roof windows to be installed easily; they make their blinds to fit easily and perfectly into the windows. In fact, the VELUX Pick&Click™ system is as easy as that thanks to the pre-mounted brackets on VELUX windows. Find blind installation videos on our YouTube channel.
