Best sunroof drapes

Do you have or are considering installing skylights? good idea! Skylights add space and light. Not only does this ensure more joy of living, but a higher home value as well! Skylight windows are always in close proximity to the ceiling and side walls. This makes finding the right drapes a challenge. Fortunately, we can meet almost any challenge. Works great with sunroof drapes too! In this blog, we list all the options for you.

Plastic sunroof drapes without screw covers

Most skylights are made of wood or plastic. In the latter case, it is important to be able to install curtains without drilling and screws. In this case, you can choose from the following options.

Top 4 tracery skylights

Not only the material of the sunroof varies. Each skylight also has a different window type. There are fixed windows, inward-turning windows and outward-opening windows. Each type of window requires a different window trim. The most common variant is the skylight, which combines tilt and swivel windows with fixed windows. Below we make four recommendations for curtains suitable for skylights. For each type of curtain we explain which type of window it is suitable for.

1.Pleated sunroof drapes

  • The most popular sunroof drapes are pleated blinds. Pleated shutters are known for their excellent thermal insulation. Trapped air between the two layers of fabric acts as a barrier against cold and heat. Suitable for areas with poor insulation, such as attics. Pleated shutters also provide great control of light and privacy. Especially when you choose the top-down bottom-up variant. This means you can open the curtains from the top as well as the bottom. Another advantage of pleated blinds is the narrow thickness of the package: when fully opened, the curtain covers only the smallest part of the glass.

  • Pros and cons

+ high insulation value

+ Lots of control over light and viewing with top down, bottom up

 

+ narrow package thickness

+ suitable tracery plastic skylights

+ Works with all types of windows

2. Aluminum sunroof drapes

  • Aluminum shutters are also great for skylights. Aluminum shutters also offer – like pleated shutters – a lot of control over light and privacy. After all, you can tilt the slats, and you can move them up and down. In addition, aluminum sunroof drapes are highly resistant to moisture and dust. Ideal for wet areas or homes with young children. You can easily wipe off the dirt stuck on it! In addition, aluminum shutters are very economical. Finally, aluminum louvers also have a narrower package thickness. When fully opened, they barely cover any glass. This way you let in the maximum amount of daylight.

  • Pros and cons

     

    + Moisture and stain resistance

    + lots of control over light and insight

    + narrow package thickness

    + economical

    + screwless mounting on frame possible

    + suitable tracery plastic skylights

    + Works with all types of windows

3.Roller sunroof drapes

  • Another popular type of window covering for skylights is the roller blind. Due to its minimalist design, this type of curtain is perfect for lovers of minimalism. In addition, roller blinds are available in a variety of colors and fabrics. For example, choose blackout roller blinds, translucent roller blinds or PVC roller blinds.

Pros and cons

+ Screwless mounting on frame possible

+ Suitable tracery plastic skylights

+ Works with all types of windows

4. Roman sunroof drapes

Roman shutters are also an option. Roman blinds make the room look warm and romantic. Therefore, such curtains are ideal for interiors in a country style. Roman blinds are also very suitable for the popular Japanese lifestyle. The pleats are reminiscent of the Japanese art of folding. Roman sunroof drapes are not only beautiful, but functional too! In this way, they can greatly improve the acoustics of the room. Especially when you choose special sound-absorbing curtain fabrics. UNITEC brand Roman blinds can be installed using clamp brackets. This makes them also suitable for plastic framed and inset windows.
