You can also choose Skylights & Roof Windows to allow both light and fresh air into the space.

Curtain is flat and will close all the daylight, some noise (i.e. traffic, rain) and some of the heat. Blackout curtains are made to measure and fit the internal frame on the side of the aluminum.

Probably the most expensive type of blind for roof windows and skylights, Venetian blind is certainly the most interesting that you can use.

The real advantage of using blinds is that you can position and still manipulate blind slat angle, giving great flexibility in how much light you allow into a room.
