Blinds and shutters
How to choose your ideal VELUX blinds and shutters
When you have decided on your perfect VELUX roof window, the time has come to complete your pairing with our wide range of original VELUX blinds and shutters.
The possibilities are endless including manually operated and beautifully designed roller blinds installed on the inside, to anti-heat blackout aluminium shutters mounted on the outside.
But what is the right solution for you and your home? The most important criteria when choosing your ideal blinds and shutters are your needs, the type of room, orientation of your roof windows and if your windows are within reach or out of reach.
Which solution should you go for?Depending on how you want your roof window to function in the home, there are various blinds and shutter solutions that are suitable for roof windows. We recommend asking yourself the following questions before making your choice:
Do you need a solution to: ·
- darken a room?
- protect your space from heat?
- ensure privacy, e.g. in the bathroom?
- decoratively enhance a room?
In most cases it is not an "either or", but an "and". Many products fulfil several of these needs simultaneously. VELUX Anti-heat blackout shutters, for example, provide heat protection and blackout at the same time.
If you are unsure about which VELUX solution is best suited to your roof window and your space, you are always welcome to contact our Daylight Advisors or look at our guide that walks you through which blind and shutter best suits which room.
