Roll Up Roll up! Warm Coloured Blinds For VELUX Windows

red VELUX blinds fitted on VELUX pitched roof windows


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 blindsVenetian 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.
