VELUX skylights are designed for overhead, out-of-reach applications or for in-reach applications that do not require egress (exit) emergency escape capabilities. Designer blinds add beauty as well as functionality to any room.
Most have a wide range of skylight blind types, methods of operation, and styles.
- Fixed Skylight: Cannot be opened.
- Manual Venting Skylight: Can be opened manually.
- Electric Venting Skylight: Can be opened via a remote control device.
- NEW – Fresh Air Solar: Powered Skylight
See the Difference for Yourself
Based on the plans for the home you are building, our Design Center uses variables like location, orientation, time, and daylight levels to create an accurate simulation of what your design would look like with skylights. Even if your model home is already built, we can still provide renderings on a motion-triggered digital picture frame to help you upgrade the natural light levels in your home.
3D renderings are valuable not just for showcasing increased natural light, but for highlighting the other benefits skylights provide, too. In the rendering of the bathroom above, for example, potential homeowners see a brighter bathroom that doesn’t sacrifice privacy the way a vertical window would.
VELUX roof windows are designed to be installed within reach. Examples include above-garage bonus rooms, lofts, and finished attic spaces. They provide the benefits of daylight and fresh air, along with egress (exit) capabilities.
