Skylights draw in loads of natural light - and the best skylight blinds will ensure you can control this light when you need to. 

Light coming in from above is very bright and so whether standard windows are not an option or you just want an additional source or light, skylights (also known as rooflights or roof windows) are a great idea. They are also something of a given in loft conversions and also in many barn conversions or in listed buildings, where the addition of new windows might not be allowed.
