One of the biggest incentives for homeowners when installing a pitched roof window or rooflight is the thought of filling the entirety of their room with sunlight. Natural light from the sun not only makes spaces brighter, but healthier and larger feeling too.
Anybody, however, who has sat down in a chair with their favourite book on a spring or summer’s afternoon will know the uncomfortable feeling of the sun’s powerful glare shining down on them- great for your tan, not so much for your reading.
As well as this common irritation, too many UV rays can also damage furniture, causing your sofa and chairs to slowly fade over time.
This is what makes the humble blind so practical. Their primary function of blocking out the sun, partially or completely, is a godsend when it comes to power naps, while their stylish designs make them integral to the overall makeup of your kitchen, bedroom or living area, providing that extra touch of pizzazz.
When it comes to selecting the right blind style and colour for a VELUX roof window, we are seriously spoilt for choice. Not only do we have to decide if it's Roman blinds, Venetian blinds or blackout blinds that we want, but there is also operation style to consider and a vast array of colours to choose from.
In this article, we will focus on the warm colours; red, orange and yellow. There are currently six different shades of red blinds available from VELUX, along with four varieties of orange and five types of yellow. These different shades are available for certain types of blinds only, as made clear below.
Red VELUX Blinds
Red blinds have the power to make rooms feel even more warm and cosy when attached to a pitched roof window, as the rich colour keep things feeling snug. In addition to making rooms more welcoming, adding a splash of red in the home can make your space a more enticing and vibrant one.
With half a dozen shades of rouge available to choose from, why not give your window (or windows) the red blind treatment and make them really stand out.
Orange VELUX Blinds
The future is bright, the fute…....come on, we’re not that obvious are we? Adding a touch of orange to an existing kitchen or extension can fill the room with additional warmth and softness. As well as being an attractive complement to white walls and ceilings, orange also gels nicely with grey, making it ideal for contemporary, stylish bedrooms.

When the need arises to lower the blinds to stem the glare of the sun, eye-catching orange blinds will remind you of the sun's beauty and warmth even when rolled down.
Yellow VELUX Blinds
Why not give your home an extra ray of sunshine in the form of yellow VELUX blinds. With yellow being the colour of hope and happiness, installing a yellow blind on your roof window can make you feel better inside, as well as more positive and energetic.
The colour spectrum of our fresh and contemporary shades of yellow is a diverse one. At one end we have very bright and vivid tones of yellow, while at the other end we have more neutral shades that edge more towards a sand/brown look.
